Vertical Lift Shuttles Storage and Vertical Lift Modules (VLM)Machines

Vertical Lift Modules (VLM)

Vertical Lift Shuttles Storage Systems and Vertical Lift Modules (VLM) are push button storage systems consisting of vertically arranged trays, a delivery lift platform mechanism, and computerized push button controls (View Vertical Lift Shuttles Storage Systems Image Gallery). Stored items are automatically brought to the operator at an ergonomic workstation.

The Vertical Lift shuttles storage systems bring parts to the operator on heavy-duty storage trays, storing up to 2,200 lb. per storage tray, with standard tray widths up to 10′ wide, tray depths up to 4′ deep, and standard vertical lift machine height up to 60′.

Vertical Lift Modules (VLM) and Shuttles are a Flexible and Smart Storage System

The Vertical Lift Module (VLM) and Shuttles storage solutions use FlexiSpace smart technology to provide optimum flexibility and maximum storage density. The VLMs and Shuttle storage systems have the ability to automatically find the right locations for the height of the inventory you are storing. The Near and Far Smart technology provides fast delivery of common inventory items because it monitors inventory usage and locates the fastest moving items closest to the access opening and slower moving parts further away from the access opening. The VLM and Shuttles’ controllers feature large, easy-to-use keys and backlit LCD displays for fast, easy, and simple operation and inventory control management.

Vertical Lift Shuttles Storage Systems and Modules Save Floor Space


The Vertical Lift Shuttles Storage Systems turn overhead air space into productive vertical storage space. Their small footprints make them a perfect choice for point-of-use storage to free up floor space for value-added manufacturing and assembly operations.

The Vertical Lift Shuttles Storage solutions can be used in conjunction with a variety of other material handling storage systems, including conveyor system, vertical carousel robotic work stations, and AGVs for a fully automated logistics operation.

Managing Inventory in the Vertical Lift Modules and Shuttle Storage Systems with FastPic Software

The Vertical Lift Modules and Shuttle Storage Systems’ inventory management software is called FastPic. FastPic is an integrated inventory management system designed to increase productivity and inventory management. An advanced, but easy-to-use controller is ergonomically positioned to ensure fast, simple operation. A number of Vertical Lift Shuttles and Vertical Lift Modules can be integrated to provide a comprehensive, fully automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS).
