How does the Modula Vertical Lift Module work?

A dual-delivery external bay, combined with laser pointer technology, offers the most advanced picking system in the Vertical Lift Module (VLM) market.

Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs) are highly automated picking and storage devices that maximize unused vertical height in new or existing facilities. The implementation of a VLM results in recovered floor space, improved ergonomics, productivity gains, and increased accuracy.

Modula has taken the standard VLM to another level with its advanced picking feature. The advanced picking feature combines Modula’s industry-exclusive external dual-delivery picking bay with Modula’s leading-edge laser pointer, a visual light-guidance aid.

Other VLM companies only offer units with internal bays and single delivery levels. While their lasers are simple red-dot pointers, Modula’s laser solution pinpoints the SKU by mapping it on an X/Y-axis. The advanced delivery and pointer systems result in faster picking rates and higher productivity.

Other benefits of Modula vertical lift modules compared to those from other VLM manufacturers are:

  • Highest tray load capacities across all tray widths without de-rating
  • Fastest tray cycle times for all units available across the full line of products
  • Wide choice of fully automated operator’s bays
  • Proudly made in the USA, resulting in the fastest deliveries in the market for all models and sizes.
