Hänel storage systems ensure a worldwide supply of spare parts even when installed in an earthquake-prone region
Tetra Pak® leads the world market when it comes to carton packaging for beverages. Eight Hänel Lean-Lift® systems are installed at the company’s distribution center in Mexico City – six of the systems are high-speed models. At this site employees process orders for spare parts needed for packaging and filling machinery in operation at Tetra Pak® subsidiaries around the world.
The Hänel Lean-Lift® functions as an automated parts depot featuring ergonomic operation
The vertical Hänel Lean-Lift® systems provide an enormous amount of storage capacity. All kinds of spare parts are neatly organized and readily available within a small storage system footprint. The picking process is fast because employees do not have to walk around looking for parts. Vertical technology from Hänel improves workplace safety and optimizes ergonomics for employees in the distribution center. Thanks to the “goods to man” principle, there is no need to stoop, lift or climb ladders.
Neat, efficient and wellorganized parts storage
Tetra Pak® relies on a vast pool of machinery installed worldwide – it goes without saying that the inventory of diverse spare parts stored in Mexico is huge. Hänel multifunction containers with flexible dividers and configuration options are ideal for coping with such massive inventories. Versatile bins and trays allow for the neat and compact storage of parts in various sizes and quantities.
The robust Hänel multifunction containers are distortion-resistant and always retain their shape.
Fast picking and precise inventory status control
The eight Hänel Lean-Lifts® are operated with the compact MP 12 N controller which features integrated warehouse management. Several employees working simultaneously retrieve parts from the Hänel systems and place them on transport carts for delivery to the shipping area nearby.
"We chose Hänel because of their impeccable sales and customer service within Mexico, and their responsive field service with authorized, licensed technicians."
