Vertical buffer modules (VBMs) are a type of material handling equipment commonly used in warehouses for storing and retrieving products and materials. These modules are designed to maximize storage space by using vertical room, allowing warehouses to accommodate a greater number of items in a smaller area.

Vertical buffer modules consist of a series of storage compartments that are stacked on top of each other, with each bin able to hold a certain weight. The bins are placed and removed by a vertical mast system, which can travel both vertically and horizontally through the center of the unit. The mast is operated through a computerized automation system that retrieves bins from specific locations within the module.

Increase Storage Density

There are several advantages to using vertical buffer modules in a warehouse setting. First and foremost, they enable the efficient use of space by utilizing the warehouse’s height. This can be especially useful in material handling facilities that have smaller floor plans, as it allows them to accommodate a greater number of items within a confined area.

Boost Pick Speed

Vertical buffer modules also provide a faster selection process, unlike standard shelving systems where workers must physically search for items from storage racks, which can be time-consuming and inefficient. In contrast, with VBMs, materials can be retrieved swiftly in a “goods-to-person” fashion, greatly lessening the time and labor required to select materials.

Improve Safety In Your Warehouse

Moreover, vertical buffer modules can enhance safety in the warehouse. Traditional shelving systems sometimes require workers to climb up ladders or use other equipment to access items on upper shelves, which can cause injuries and additional health risks. With VBMs, workers can obtain items from the floor level, minimizing the chance of falls and other injuries.
