Vertical lift module (VLM) systems are automated retrieval and storage apparatuses that are frequently deployed in distribution centers, warehouses, and other material handling facilities. These apparatuses contain a series of vertically arranged storage bins or trays which are accessed with a lift device. The lift mechanism is directed by a software system that coordinates the collection and replacement of trays to the storage area.

VLM systems are designed to setup effective and efficient collection and replacement of components in a material handling facility. They can be used to store a plethora of different sorts of things, including boxes, pallets, and totes. The vertical orientation of the storage bins allows for a greater storage density in a more compact space, making them an excellent solution for warehouses with limited floor plans.

Vertical Lift Module Benefits

One of the key benefits of VLM setups is their extensive automation. The computerized lift apparatus is able to speedily and accurately find the selected tray, reducing the requirement for manual retrieval or storage and improving the speed and efficiency of the retrieval and storage procedure. VLM systems also often possess a high storage capacity, so they are suitable to be used in large distribution centers and warehouses.

Another asset of VLM systems is that they optimize the space used inside a distribution center or warehouse. The vertical configuration of the storage trays or bins results in a greater density of storage, decreasing the required floor space by storage and freeing up other space for other uses. Additionally, VLM configurations can be designed to accommodate a whole range of bin proportions and configurations, making it possible to customize the system to the situational needs of the warehouse or distribution center.

VLM systems can also be meshed with other warehouse equipment, such as conveyor systems and lift trucks, to additionally improve the speed of the retrieval and storage process. As an example, VLM systems are able to be configured with conveyor systems to automatically move pieces to and from the vertical storage, reducing the need for workers to partake in handling.

VLM systems can be engineered to satisfy the circumstantial needs of a warehouse or distribution center. For example, they are able to be set up to accommodate differing sizes and types of materials, as well as differing collection and replacement necessities. In addition, VLM systems can be equipped with a collection of features to improve safety, such as safety barriers and warning lights.
