What Are Vertical Lift Modules?

Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs) are advanced storage systems designed to optimize space and improve efficiency in various industries. These automated units consist of vertically arranged trays or bins that can be easily accessed through a computer-controlled lifting mechanism. VLMs offer a compact footprint and a high storage density, making them ideal for storing small to medium-sized items. When an item needs to be retrieved, the VLM brings the designated tray to an ergonomic pick window, reducing the time and effort required for manual retrieval. These innovative solutions streamline inventory management, enhance productivity, and contribute to a more organized and efficient workflow.

What Applications Need a Vertical Lift Module Storage System?

The system consists of two main components: the vertical lift unit and a series of trays or bins. When an item needs to be stored or retrieved, an operator uses a computer interface to input the item’s location or identity. The VLM’s computerized control system then calculates the optimal tray position and activates the vertical lift. The lift moves up or down, bringing the designated tray to a retrieval or storage window. The operator can easily access the item without the need for manual searching or handling, ensuring efficient and error-free operations.
