Vertical lift module (VLM) setups are automatic retrieval and storage apparatuses that are regularly used in warehouses, distribution centers, and other material handling locations. These systems have a set of vertically positioned storage trays or bins that are reached using a lift device. The lift is directed with a computer that coordinates the moving of the trays to and from the storage area.

VLM systems are configured to provide efficient and effective collection and storage of materials in a material handling location. They can be used to store a variety of varying kinds of materials, including boxes, totes, and pallets. The vertical alignment of the storage bins creates a increased density of storage in a smaller space, making them an elegant method for material handling facilities with limited floor space.

Vertical Lift Module Benefits

One of the key benefits of VLM setups is their high level of automation. The computerized lift mechanism can quickly and accurately find the assigned tray, reducing the requirement for workers to partake in handling and increasing the pace and efficiency of the storage and retrieval process. VLM setups also usually possess a high storage capacity, so they are suitable to be used in larger warehouses and distribution centers.

Another asset of VLM systems is their ability to optimize the storage space in a distribution center or warehouse. The vertical configuration of the storage bins results in a higher density of storage, decreasing the floor space used by storage and freeing up additional floor area for other purposes. In addition, VLM systems are able to be engineered to accommodate a wide variety of tray or bin configurations and proportions, allowing for customization of the VLM to the individual design of the material handling facility.

VLM systems are also able to be meshed with additional material handling hardware, such as forklifts and conveyor systems, to further improve the effectiveness of the storage and retrieval operation. As an example, VLM systems are able to be deployed with conveyor systems to automatically move components to and from the stacked storage, diminishing the necessity for manual handling.

VLM’s can be configured to satisfy the circumstantial needs of a warehouse or distribution center. As an example, they are able to be set up to allow for different types and sizes of materials, plus varied collection and replacement needs. In addition, VLM storage setups can be outfitted with varying features to improve safety, like warning lights and safety barriers.
