ertical lift modules (VLM) are fully
automated vertical storage systems that
take up a minimum footprint by utilising
the full ceiling height available. These systems
allow for large inventory of goods to be quickly
accessible while being stored in a safe and
secure environment and automatically delivered
to the operators.
The modular design of the VLM ensures
almost unlimited flexibility. The height can be
modified and adjusted to use the full ceiling
height, by adding or removing modules. If you
change locations or move to a different site,
Modula VLM can be easily adapted to the new
Moreover, thanks to the height detection
system, the height of each tray is measured
as the tray is put away, allowing for the most
appropriate storage location to be determined
in real time, thus maximising storage density
within the unit.
Trays can be organised for every type/
size of stored item. Thanks to the partitions
and dividers, users can create the exact
number of storage locations required and their
configuration can be adjusted, at any time, to
accommodate changes in the size or quantity of
Every VLM can be employed as a standalone
system utilising the inventory management WMS
software, or as a fully interfaced version to the
customer’s host management system.
