VERTICAL LIFT MODULE (VLM)
The Vidir Vertical Lift Module (VLM) is Vidir’s revolutionary new automated storage and retrieval system that provides smart, adaptable inventory management to maximize density and increase productivity. Storing the trays in vertical towers allows for a minimal footprint, saving up to 85% of floor space.
The VLM's industry first servo motors, provide a unparalleled combination of speed, power and accuracy. Ensure fast and accurate pick's without the need for constant calibration. They reduce process time and improve output. This system offers both speed and exceptional weight capacities, even when tray weights are maximized.
Laser and sensor array tray-presence, proximity, and homing sensors, in addition to dedicated laser sensors for rail positioning ensure tray movements are accurate, fast and eliminate errors and shutdowns.
The VLM uses two tray towers, one in front and one in back, along with a central elevator. Trays are extracted and presented quickly, efficiently, and at an ergonomic height for the operator. Autosensing capabilities allow the machine to pick the most efficient bin location bringing added efficiency, productivity and ROI, while keeping storage density high.
The density is further improved by the VLM's multi-level rail system, which offers robust, flexible movement with up to 6 positions available per a tray, the feeder rail system provides efficient storage, combined with strength and durability.
The low maintenance, high-strength, and extreme durable chain drive is reliable and exceeds the industry standard and removed the downtime that comes with the use of other belts.
Shipped factory-tested with plug-and-play connections for easy installation and use.
Available VLM Sizes:
Heights: 9'-10" to 29'-8"
Widths: 9'-9" to 13'-9"
Depths: 7'-10" to 9'-7"
Storage: 188 ft³ to 1649 ft³
AUTOMATIC HEIGHT DETECTION
The VLM uses cutting-edge technology and intelligent software to accurately measure the amount of storage space required by each tray. It performs complex calculations to determine the most efficient storage location to optimize inventory density every time items are stored or retrieved. The vertical orientation improves the overall throughput speed and increases capacity.
Along with maximizing density, Vidir’s intelligent software ensures the material handling process is as smooth and efficient as possible. Pick times are kept to a minimum to increase productivity and remove costly bottlenecks. The VLM's servo motors provide an unparalleled combination of speed, power, and accuracy to reduce process time.
The VLM puts you in control of your inventory while shrinking your storage footprint. The easy-to-use software interface allows you to pick and stock item lists, integrate with your ERP system, run reports from any connected PC, and includes remote access for service diagnostics, maximizing your productivity and ROI.
