The Drive Components

  • Brand: Hänel
  • Product Code: Hanel Lean-Lift

High traversing speeds, low noise levels and accurate positioning are characteristics of the Hanel Lean-Lift Vertical Lift Module (VLM)
Hanel Lean-Lift® Vertical Lift Module (VLM) new generation in a high-speed version

The Hanel Lean-Lift® Vertical Lift Module (VLM) is available in a high-speed version. The vertical speed of travel, for example for containers with a load capacity of up to 500 kg, is 2.3 m/sec with an empty extractor, and 1 m/sec with a loaded extractor. Horizontally the extractor travels jolt-free at a speed of 0.5 m/sec. 

Moreover each Hanel Lean-Lift® is equipped with a soft start control with frequency converter.
The advantage: Gentle and rapid acceleration and braking.

The vertical carriage (extractor) has 4-point suspension...

This has enormous advantages:
• No tilting of the extractor.
• No problems with certain load imbalances, especially with heavy loads, and therefore a longer lifecycle.
• Easy maintenance access from the side.
• Easy attachment of the arresting device for the extractor.

...and time-proven, low-noise 4-chain technology!

• Roller chains are durable, so no fatigue failures.
• Long lifecycle.
• No replacement necessary at fixed service intervals.
• Roller chains have a high rate of efficiency (98%).
• Accurate positioning because of high rigidity.
• No slip on emergency stops.

Highly efficient and powerful motors allow the extractor to achieve travel speeds of up to 2.3 m/sec

The Hanel EcoDrive® – CO2 reductions thanks to efficient energy recovery

In the Hanel Lean-Lift® EcoDrive®, a frequency converter converts the kinetic energy of the descending extractor into electrical energy and feeds it back into the electrical supply system.
Depending on the traversing rate, up to 40% of the energy fed in for the upward run can be returned to the supply network.
