Vertical Lift Modules (VLM)
Reduce your storage footprint, picking time, and improve your
inventory tracking with a Modula Vertical Lift Module (VLM).
Optimize your available space by combining traditional storage
racks into a fully computerized and automated vertical lift
system. See video below for demonstration!
A vertical lift module (VLM) is an enclosed system of vertically
arranged trays, an extraction platform and a series of
computerized controls that delivers goods to an ergonomically
positioned workstationwhere an operator picks or replenishes the
goods. The VLM automatically locates stored goods and retrieves
trays from both the front and back of the unitwith a push of a
button or a scan of a bar code.
The Modula vertical carousel is able to densely pack all your
parts, tools, materials and supplies in customizable drawers. All
the drawers are easily accessible with customizable options such
as internal or external picking bays and an amazingly powerful
Windows based touch screen control panel running SYSTORE
inventory and retrieval software.
The Modula automated vertical lift system is fully modular and
can be customized with different drawer widths, heights and
capacities. The SYSTORE software will also help to optimize part
placement within a tray, as well as recommend a drawer to use.

one of the fastest and most efficient Automated Storage and
Retrieval Systems (ASRS)available. The Modula system makes

The Modula vertical storage carousel is ideally suited for
high-turnover production parts as well as indirect-cost items
such as tools, raw materials, and supplies. Handling large
quantities of low-cost materials generally involves high logistic
costs. Especially here, considerable savings are possible through
optimized storage and ordering procedures.
