VERTICAL LIFT MODULES/VERTICAL LIFT SYSTEMS

VLM/VLS Systems

Similar to vertical carousels, however typically applied for larger part storage or when overall or part height exceeds vertical carousel constraints, vertical lift modules from AS/R Systems provide easy access to material and consolidate part storage into a minimum building footprint. Available with simple touchscreen bin selection to software inventory control capability, VLM’s integrated into the right material handling application will increase picking productivity, maximize storage capacity, and create a secure environment for part storage.

Bar Stock Vertical Lift System

The Bar Stock / Linear Vertical Lift System (VLS) is an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/AR) that utilizes an elevator to climb the front of the tower to deposit and retrieve drawers weighing up to 5,000 lbs and deliver them directly to ground level for further processing, increasing material storage and flow. The result is a safe and effective storage system designed to SIL3 / CAT4 / PL e safety standards that will save valuable floor space, eliminate redundant processes, and improve workplace safety.

  • Save floor space and increase storage capacity by utilizing overhead space
  • Meets SIL3 / CAT4 / PL e safety standards
  • Contained storage environment prevents material damage
  • Automated storage eliminates forklift requirement during normal operation
  • Quick access to material
  • Eliminate disruption in adjacent work cells caused by forklift operation
  • Reduce material retrieval times by up to 75%

Sheet Metal Vertical Lift System

The Sheet Metal Vertical Lift System (VLS) is an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/AR) that utilizes an elevator to climb the front of the tower to deposit and retrieve cartridges weighing up to 5,000 lbs and deliver them directly to the ground level for further processing, increasing material storage and improving production flow. Further, integrating storage and processing can eliminate costly retrieval steps, increase production machinery uptime, and reduce associated labor.

  • Eliminates the need for forklifts during standard operation (operator, spotter, forklift)
  • Reduce material changeover time by as much as 75%
  • Utilizes overhead space for maximum storage density
  • Prevents material damage
  • Ergonomic design increases workplace safety and prevents injuries
  • Improved productivity with more efficient SKU picking
