What is a Carousel?

Storage carousels are an automated material handling system with rotating shelves that move up or down in response to your commands, delivering items to you through ergonomically safe and convenient access windows. These systems are typically used in warehouses and distribution centers to vertically store and retrieve goods or materials. They maximize storage capacity while optimizing picking and storage processes.

Key Benefits

Carousels are particularly useful for storing small to medium-sized items such as parts, tools, components, and other inventory with high turnover rates. By automating the storage and retrieval process, carousels can optimize warehouse operations, reduce errors, and improve material handling processes.

    Hänel High-Density Carousels

    Founded in 1953 by Gerhard Hänel, Hänel products are developed by innovation and performance, allowing the company to become one of the leading storage and organization systems providers By partnering with Hänel, Adaptec can offer a flexible storage and provisioning system with products including the Hanel Lean-Lift® and Hanel Rotomat® Carousel System.

    The Hanel Lean-Lift® uses available room heights, similar to high bay racking. Unlike high bay racking, the Lean-Lift stores the parts without losing storage space by height optimization. This results in maximum storage capacity on a minimum footprint.

    The Hanel Rotomat® Carousel System has revolutionized warehousing, material handling, and retrieval times. With Hanel Carousel storage, capacity is increased by up to 60%, with enormous reductions in work time achieved.

    Benefits of a Hänel storage system

    • More than 60% space savings – Rotomat® makes use of available room height and creates up to 60% more storage capacity due to its compact design
    • Work time slashed – Parts arrive at retrieval area in just a few seconds
    • Increased ergonomics – No more bending, ladder climbing, or walking to search for and store parts
    • Sustainability – Hänel is committed to environmental protection
    • Tailormade intralogistics concepts
