One Hänel Multi-Space® serves as the primary tool depot for high-tech production processes. The three-axis Hänel system is used for storing and provisioning a wide range of tools, metrology devices and consumables. The lift system supports optimized space utilization and brings items to both central access points for ergonomic retrieval.
Storage of sterile instruments
The Hänel Rotomat® is used to store surgical instruments in sterile containers to protect them from all kinds of contamination.
The retrieval of these containers takes place at the optimum ergonomic height.
Barcode-supported access control with HänelSoft®
The storage system is operated with HänelSoft® storage management software. Access control is supported through barcode scanning of employee IDs and contributes to the transparency and security of all storage transactions.
Once logged in, employees enter the item designation using the system terminal to retrieve the sterile article they need. The overview displayed can then be used to select the correct storage position. The sterile containers are transported to the access point quickly, and items can be retrieved for the OR without any chance of errors.
Four other Rotomat® systems are in operation at the hospital’s central supply depot. These automated systems are used to store various medical products and utensils needed to provide nursing care. The storage capacity has been increased considerably because movable shelf racks are no longer needed.
All of the lift systems are controlled via HänelSoft® which makes put and pick operations, as well as sterile storage and inventory management, much easier. The storage positions and items on inventory are identified with HänelSoft® and then displayed on the lift control terminal.
