Vertical Lift Modules


Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs) are fully automated storage systems that allow for minimal space impact by taking up vertical space, which is otherwise difficult to access. They consist of a series of trays or carriers that move vertically within an enclosed unit, delivering stored items to an access point. VLMs use an inserter/extractor within the unit which locates the desired stored tray. 

VLMs are available in a wide range of sizes and capacities to suit your specific needs.
