Vertical Lift Machines (VLMs) are a “goods to man” picking solution that allows users to pick orders very efficiently while optimizing space utilization within a facility. Its internal software allows this seemingly complex machine to be one of the most user-friendly tools in your warehouse. VLMs are capable of delivering one or two trays at a time to the picking area and are often used to store and pick smaller cube, slower-moving items.
VLMs are also great with space utilization, condensing 5,000 square feet to about 150 square feet for the machine, a 90% decrease in your footprint. They can also utilize either inside picking, where the trays stay entirely inside the device, or outside picking, where the actual picking bay comes out 3 to 4 feet. VLMs offer user-friendly interfaces for many functions making it the perfect customizable addition to your facility.
