Vertical Lift Module (VLM) SSI Schaefer

LOGIMAT® IS THE ALL-IN-ONE STORING AND PICKING SOLUTION

The LOGIMAT® Vertical Lift Module is similar to an oversized drawer cabinet with two stacks of trays, one at the front and one at the back. Between the two rows of trays is a lift. This lift climbs the entire height of the vertical storage machine to remove an individual tray from the respective positions and to deliver them to the access opening.

The unit has an opening at the front and allows users to select a specific tray via a user interface. The unit sends the tray down to the opening and enables the user to pick their item safely and securely.

VLMs save an enormous amount of space, which means items take minimal square footage since everything is stored vertically.

Users incorporate VLMs for various applications too—everything from nuts and bolts to high value items or pharmaceuticals. Plus, many VLMs come with options that make picking virtually error-free and provide ergonomic benefits to increase picking speeds.
