Vertical lift module (VLM) is an enclosed system which comprises two columns of tray, each of which is separated into fixed shelf locations with an extractor or inserter in the center which can hold a single storage module such as a tray. The VLM automatically locates the stored trays and retrieves them from both the back and front of the unit by pushing a button and delivers them to the operator at an ergonomically positioned pick window. The VLM is designed to eliminate search time and to deliver the stored items to the operator. The module is capable of increasing the productivity up to two third (2/3). Vertical lift module is ideal for reducing the requirement of floor for stored materials. The module has the capability of reducing the square feet as much as 90% while saving money, time, and also increasing productivity. These modules are majorly used for order picking, kitting, consolidation, buffering, parts handling, buffer storage, inventory storage, and various other similar operations. They also help in improving the worker ergonomics, increasing labor productivity, and helps in controlling the ongoing process. VLMs are majorly utilized in automotive, industrial, and healthcare applications. Increasing need for optimizing the floor space in warehouses, and rising warehouse rentals is expected to drive the VLM market over the forecast period. The benefits associated with the deployment of VLM as compared to standard shelving systems and increasing focus on worker safety and security has also influenced the VLM market growth positively. Furthermore, increasing global warehouse investments, integration of robotics, and growing demand for dual-delivery for numerous end-users is also anticipated to enhance the VLM market growth. VLMs are capable of reducing the labor while maintaining the pick volume, resulting in reduced operating cost in maintaining the warehouses, leading to increased adoption of the […]
