A Vertical Lift Module (VLM) is a vertical Automated Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS) that encompasses trays in the front and back and an inserter and extractor through the center.
Simply input your order and the VLM delivers them directly to a picker. Trays are retrieved and delivered automatically to a pick window.
A VLM also allows items to be delivered to multiple access windows, further improving throughput and accuracy.
Upon picking completion, an inserter/extractor retrieves and stores the tray in a designated position based on space-saving metrics for the quickest possible retrieval.
Protect your goods by reducing drop risk and damage.
Reduce damaged goods while increasing retrieval times and reducing the manpower to find products.
A VLM provides secure storage with user-level access for restricted items to avoid products in the wrong hands. Meanwhile, shutter doors and lighted areas can improve safety and reduce accidental cost incursion.
The result: picking and packing occur rapidly and with higher accuracy.
Maximize your vertical cube by providing on-demand access to hundreds or thousands of SKUs.
The trays are multifunctional, working as cases, totes, and large items. Using trays with dividers can store large SKU quantities on one tray. When paired with pick-to-light technology, voice picking, or conveyors, you’ll achieve higher throughput with 99.99% accuracy. One client achieved cost savings of $100K after integrating a VLM. They increased their capacity and fulfillment while reducing pick times and labor costs.
VLMs have basic internal controls and integrate with existing warehouse management software (WMS). Systems can also maximize density to find additional space in facilities where it is limited. The VLM measures trays to create storage space automatically.
Whether using single or multiple VLMs, consolidation and buffering requirements can increase existing floor space and increase productivity so you see a rapid return on investment (ROI).
