Vertical Lift Modules
Elevate your automated storage and retrieval systems with White Systems vertical lift modules (VLMs). Improve space usage, boost productivity, and enhance accuracy through automation.
White Systems Vertical Lift Modules
White Systems vertical lift modules optimize space by storing items vertically, reducing the storage footprint. Enhancing productivity and accuracy, they minimize manual handling errors by automating storage and retrieval processes. By driving cost savings through efficiency gains and reduced labor needs, they offer scalability and sustainability.
Compact Lift: Vertical storage system with flexible sizing options and a modular design. Available with a wide range of tray configurations for item heights and sizes for automated storage.
Compact Twin: Fastest option with a double elevator for approximately twice the trays presented per hour. The second tray is retrieved while the first is placed in the picking position.
Compact Double: Twice the number of trays available makes this the most dense and space-saving VLM.
Our 4-wheel rack and pinion robotic elevator drive system boasts unparalleled robustness, significantly reducing maintenance requirements.
|Width||Height||Max load capacity per tray|
|Compact Lift||67″ to 272″||118″ to 630″||660 to 3,300 lbs|
|Compact Twin||91″ to 187″||118″ to 630″||660 lbs or 1,100 lbs|
|Compact Double||91″ to 273″||118″ to 630″||660 lbs or 1,100 lbs|
How it works
Items are loaded onto the trays of the VLM, depending on size and type. Our measurement system calculates the height of the items in each tray. The storage location within the unit is optimized, minimizing floor space required and maximizing storage density.
A stored tray is retrieved and placed ergonomically in the picking position for the operator. Our VLMs include group rights and authorization, storage optimization, a safety curtain at the access openings, and password protection. Our VLM solutions can seamlessly integrate with your facility’s WMS or ERP system, streamlining your entire operation.
