Vertical Lift Machines Provide Maximum Storage Density

In addition to saving floor space, the Vertical Lift Machines can be equipped with cube technology to provide maximum storage density to the inch. For example, as a 3.4 inch tall item passes onto the extractor platform, the Vertical Lift Machine automatically measures the stored items and determines here is a need for a 4 inch high space. The extractor will then move the tray into the nearest 4 inch opening or select the next available opening of a larger size.

Vertical Lift Machines Automate Parts Picking

The Vertical Lift Machines will also automate parts picking. Items can be stored and retrieved with a simple push of a button or be interfaced with parts picking software. The Vertical Lift Machines bring all stored items directly to the operator at an ergonomic counter, which eliminates walking and searching through aisles of shelving for parts. The easy to operate controls will display the status of the unit, monitor the tray weight and provide user management features such as restricted access.
