With simple push-button operation, parts are delivered to the operator for immediate picking and shipping and eliminating wasted time spent walking and searching for parts through aisles of static shelving. And pick-to-light technology directs the operator to the exact picking location, which increases accuracy by up to 99.9%.

warehouse management inventory management software for oil and gas industriesThe automated VLMs are designed to meet a broad range of storage and retrieval applications for oil and gas industries. Storage trays are automatically delivered to ergonomic access openings with the push of a button. The height and number of access openings can be adjusted and modified after installation. These vertically designed parts storage units can recover up to 85% of storage floor space by taking advantage of unused overhead air space. To maximize storage even more, the height of each tray is automatically scanned by the machine to find the ideal storage location in the least amount of space within the VLM. The VLM system leaves a compact footprint, allowing you to store more oil and gas parts in less floor space.
