Vertical lift module (VLM) setups are automated storage and retrieval apparatuses that are commonly configured in warehouses, distribution centers, and other material handling facilities. These setups are made of a series of vertically aligned storage bins or trays that are reached with a lift device. The lift mechanism is controlled through a computer system that dictates the moving of the bins to and from the storage area.

VLM setups are engineered to create efficient and effective replacement and collection of materials in a warehouse or distribution center. They are useful for storing a variety of varying sorts of pieces, including boxes, pallets, and totes. The vertical alignment of the storage trays or bins creates a increased density of storage in a smaller space, making them an excellent solution for distribution centers with smaller floor space.

Vertical Lift Module Benefits

One of the key benefits of vertical lift modules is their extensive automation. The computer-controlled lift device is able to quickly and exactly retrieve the intended tray, lessening the necessity for workers to partake in retrieval or storage and increasing the efficiency and pace of the storage and retrieval procedure. VLM’s also typically possess a large storage capacity, making them well equipped for deployment in large material handling locations.

Another benefit of VLM setups is that they optimize the use of space within a distribution center or warehouse. The vertical alignment of the storage bins allows for a higher storage density, limiting the amount of floor space required for storage and making additional space for additional uses. Additionally, VLM configurations can be configured to accommodate a wide range of tray sizes and configurations, making it possible to customize the system to the specific design of the warehouse or distribution center.

VLM systems can also be integrated with additional warehouse equipment, such as conveyor systems and lift trucks, to additionally increase the speed of the retrieval and storage process. For example, VLM systems are able to be configured alongside conveyor systems to automatically move materials to and from the stacked storage, reducing the necessity for workers to partake in handling.

VLM’s can be configured to meet the circumstantial needs of a warehouse or distribution center. As an example, they can be set up to allow for varying sizes and sorts of materials, as well as varying retrieval and replacement necessities. Also, VLM storage setups can be furnished with various features to enhance safety, like safety barriers and warning lights.
