The Viper VLM (Vertical Lift Module) is an enclosed, high-density storage and retrieval system consisting of two columns of trays in the front and in the back with a robotic extractor that delivers trays to an ergonomically positioned work counter. The unit takes advantage of unused overhead space to reduce the amount of floor space required by traditional shelving up to 85%. The system is able to designate specific storage locations or to use the unit's optimization program. A dynamic tray height sensor automatically scans and optimizes storage density every time a tray is stored in the unit. The system's control automatically directs every tray to the least amount of vertical space possible necessary for storage.
