Hänel storage systems create additional space and time savings - with the right software systems

Control solutions such as the Optimization Run, which automatically eliminates unused space, or the Access Priority Factor which stores frequently requested containers closer to the access point than those needed less often, are examples of the ways an advanced control system may enhance your carousel investment.

These systems also drive efficiency. Integrations between a lean lift or vertical carousel and the Hänel high-speed drive and microprocessor control unit allow ultra-fast travel speeds of up to 2.3 meters per second.
