How automated vertical carousels can improve spare part storage:

Automated vertical carousels, specifically our Hänel Rotomat, offers significant advantages for car sales and car garage environments.  By utilising these innovative systems, automotive businesses can streamline operations, save space, and improve overall efficiency.

Storage Carousel: Space Savings and Optimisation

One of the primary benefits of the Hänel Rotomat vertical storage carousel is its ability to save space. Traditional shelving systems often lead to cluttered and inefficient use of floor space. The Rotomat, on the other hand, uses vertical space, which regularly results in savings of up to 90% more capacity within the same footprint. This is crucial in car garages where space is often at a premium. By storing items vertically, garages can free up valuable floor space for other productive activities, such as vehicle repairs and customer service.

Improved Efficiency and Productivity for Parts Storage:

The Ferris wheel-like mechanism of the Hänel Rotomat ensures that parts are delivered directly to the operator at an ergonomic height. This eliminates the need for employees to walk through aisles searching for parts, thereby reducing retrieval times significantly. In car garages, where quick, accurate access to car parts is essential, this increased efficiency can lead to faster turnaround times for vehicle repairs and maintenance, enhancing customer satisfaction.

Enhanced Security and Protection with Carousel Storage Systems:

The enclosed design of the vertical storage carousel protects stored items from dust, dirt, and unauthorised access. In car sales and garage environments, where valuable car parts and tools are stored, the security features of the Rotomat – such as lockable sliding doors and controlled access – help prevent theft and damage. This ensures that high-value components are always secure, reducing the risk of loss and associated costs.

Advanced Inventory Management for car part storage:

The integration of sophisticated software with the Hänel Rotomat allows for precise inventory management. Automotive businesses can track parts usage, manage stock levels, and even automate reordering processes. This leads to better stock oversight and reduced downtime due to out-of-stock parts. The software can also integrate with existing dealer management systems, providing a seamless transition and enhancing overall operational efficiency.

Steve on Vertical Storage Carousels:

“In real-world applications, automotive dealerships and garages have reported significant improvements in their operations after implementing the Hänel Rotomat. For example, parts departments in car dealerships that previously struggled with space constraints and inefficient part retrieval processes have transformed their operations by adopting vertical storage carousels. These businesses now enjoy streamlined workflows, reduced picking errors, and better overall space utilisation.

A good example of a client case-study for our Rotomats in automotive environments is in Ford, but we have automated storage solutions of all sorts in our solutions tab on the website.

Vertical carousels for spare parts - ergonomics and scalability:

The ergonomic design of the Rotomat improves the working conditions for employees. By bringing parts to a comfortable working height, the system reduces the need for bending, reaching, or climbing ladders, which can lead to workplace injuries. This not only makes the workplace safer but also contributes to higher productivity and employee satisfaction.

The Hänel Rotomat is highly flexible and can be customised to fit the specific needs of an automotive business. Whether storing small car parts, tools, or larger components, the system’s carriers can be adjusted to accommodate various sizes and weights. Additionally, as businesses grow, additional carousels can be integrated into the system, ensuring that storage solutions can scale with the business’s needs.
