What is a Vertical Lift?

Vertical Lift Modules (VLM) are an automated storage and retrieval system built with two columns of trays facing each other. A mechanical inserter/extractor is positioned between the columns and automatically locates and retrieves trays as needed for dynamic storage and retrieval

Trays come in a variety of sizes and load capacities

VLMs usually handle double the load capacity over similar height carousels
