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 completely inside the machine, 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.
