If you’re looking to optimize your warehouse storage and streamline your inventory management, then Modula’s Vertical Lift Module (VLM) is the game-changing solution you’ve been searching for. In this blog, we’ll delve into how this cutting-edge technology revolutionizes warehousing and fulfillment processes. By taking advantage of your warehouse’s vertical space like never before, Modula’s Vertical Lift Module ensures seamless operations, increased productivity, and enhanced operational efficiency. Get ready to discover the key role this technology plays in modern warehousing and fulfillment.
Modula’s Vertical Lift Modules (VLM) revolutionize warehouse operations by efficiently storing and retrieving items. Each module consists of vertically stacked trays, creating a high-density storage system. When a retrieval request is made, the extractor lifts and positions itself to the desired tray level. It then brings the designated tray to the operator, ensuring quick and accurate access to the stored items. The modular design of Modula’s Vertical Lift Module allows for easy configuration and customization, adapting to various warehouse layouts and inventory management strategies.
With Modula’s Vertical Lift Module (VLM), your warehouse or distribution center can optimize storage space, minimize manual handling, and enhance overall productivity. This advanced system streamlines warehouse operations, making it ideal for industries with diverse product ranges and high-volume order fulfillment needs.
Modula Vertical Lift Modules use state-of-the-art technology to enable fast and accurate inventory management. Their wire guidance system allows the extractor to move vertically and horizontally with precision, enabling a throughput of 130 trays per hour. Additionally, Modula Vertical Lift Modules come with Warehouse Management System (WMS) software that manages all your inventory information, allowing you to monitor stock levels in real time and optimize storage locations based on dimensions, weight, frequency of use, and other factors.
This ensures efficient space utilization and rapid order fulfillment.
These modules can also connect with your facility’s wider logistics IT infrastructure using industry-standard protocols. This allows easy integration with existing warehouse execution systems and allows you to run a more streamlined operation.
Here are some of the key benefits companies can realize by implementing Modula Vertical Lift Modules:
A major advantage of a Modula Vertical Lift Module is their ability to maximize cube utilization and increase storage capacity within existing warehouse footprints. By storing inventory in vertically arranged trays that are automatically delivered to an access opening, Modula’s Vertical Lift Modules allow you to reclaim up to 90% of your floor space compared to traditional storage methods. They can also be installed alongside existing storage fixtures and picking zones without taking up excessive floor space. This allows you to store more SKUs and inventory units within the same warehouse area.
Modula Vertical Lift Modules grant workers direct access to stored items at an ergonomic access point. Inventory is automatically delivered to the operator, which eliminates walking and searching. This improves picking rates, reduces labor hours per order, and even diminishes the likelihood of repetitive strain injuries.
Modula’s automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) also have dual-tray extractors that allow you to stage two orders simultaneously and 3-5 second delivery times, both of which amplify the efficiency of your fulfillment processes.
By tracking your inventory in real-time and providing an accurate picture of stock levels and item location, Modula’s Vertical Lift Modules ensure an inventory accuracy of over 99.9%. Moreover, these Vertical Lift Modules minimize damage, contamination, expiration, and misplacement of items by storing materials in secure, enclosed trays.
By freeing up more of your staff from manual item retrieval, Modula’s Vertical Lift Modules enable them to concentrate on other value-adding endeavors. Employees can focus on tasks like quality control, skill development, packaging, and more, further elevating your operations and enhancing customer satisfaction. Modula’s Vertical Lift Modules transform routine tasks into strategic contributions, amplifying your workforce’s role in driving warehouse success.
