Vertical Lift Modules Provide Efficient Tool Storage for an Automotive Company

An automotive parts supply company wanted to create more space in one of their plants for tool storage. The lack of ergonomics and poor appearance of the outdated shelf parts storage units were in need of improvement. Three new MegaStar Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs) were selected for their flexibility, minimum space requirement, short access times, and protection of stored items. (view Vertical Lift Module images)

The Vertical Lift Module’s Flexibility Equals Maximum Space Savings

Because the automotive company tool storage inventory consisted of a wide variety tool heights and sizes, the new storage system needed to be flexibile to accomodate their needs. The client chose MegaStar because of it’s FlexiSpace™ smart storage technology. The FlexiSpace™ system automatically measures the height of items placed on storage trays and then stores the tray in an available storage location corresponding to the tray’s height requirement. In addition to optimizing space utilization, the MegaStar’s Near and Far™ Technology shortens access times by locating frequently requested trays closest to the picking port. Click here to learn more about Vertical Lift Modules.

The MegaStar’s trays have a variety of accessories which enabled the automotive company to sub-divide storage trays to facilitate maximum space efficiency within the trays. Various tool sizes can be accommodated in the same tray too. Also, the trays in the VLM can be reconfigured as future tool storage needs change.
