VLM (Vertical Lift Module)

Vertical Lift Module (VLM) or G2P “Goods to Person”  is an enclosed system of vertically arranged trays, an extraction platform and a series of computerized controls that delivers items to an ergonomically positioned workstation. The VLM automatically locates and retrieves stored items with a push of a button or a scan of a bar code.

Several Shuttle VLMs can be placed side-by-side or back-to-back to form a compact and efficient automated storage and retrieval system. Software combines hardware and controls to give the Shuttle VLM up to 50 percent more storage capacity than Vertical Lift Modules without the software Interface .
