The Vidir Vertical Lift Module (or VLM) is Vidir’s revolutionary new automated storage and retrieval system that provides smart, adaptable inventory management to maximize density and further increase productivity. Making use of 2 tray towers, one in front and one in back, along with a center elevator, trays are extracted and presented quickly, efficiently, and at an ergonomic height for the operator. Storing the trays in vertical towers allows for a minimal footprint, saving floor space up to 85%, and keeping your employees safe.
The VLM is useful in many applications, including MRO (maintenance, repair, and operating supply) for upkeep supplies, automotive repair parts, manufacturing supplies and parts, and even integration into the pharmaceutical industry.
Automatic Height Detection
The VLM makes use of cutting-edge technology and intelligent software to accurately measure the amount of storage space required by each tray and then performs complex calculations to determine the most efficient storage location to optimize inventory density every time items are stored or retrieved.
Along with maximizing density, Vidir’s intelligent software ensures the material handling process is as smooth and efficient as possible. Pick times are kept to a minimum to increase productivity and remove costly bottlenecks.
The VLM puts you in control of your inventory while shrinking your storage footprint. The easy-to-use software interface allows you to pick and stock item lists, integrate with your ERP system, run reports from any connected PC, and includes remote access for service diagnostics, which maximizes your productivity and ROI.

Fold Out External Tray Access Arms – Arms fold out from below the access point to allow tray access to be extended in front of the unit for stocking or retrieval of parts, and easy lift-assist access.
Tray Transporter – The Transporter allows trays to be removed from the unit, and easily wheeled to a working area. When the tray is no longer needed, the Transporter facilitates quick re-insertion of the tray back into the unit for storage. Intelligent software marks when trays have been removed to retain tracking on all items in the VLM.
Pic-to-Lite – Horizontal LED strip to help easily identify where items are stored on the tray. Find the items quickly and accurately.
Bar Code Scanner – Pick or Store parts with a quick scan of the bar code, increasing accuracy and efficiency.
Customizable Trays – Further organize your parts with customizable trays. Insert dividers, partitions, etc as desired to fit the height, width, or depth you need. Add fitted containers to ensure maximum use of tray space for loose parts.
Badge Reader – Simplify the login process with an easy-to-use Badge Reader. Simply scan the badge and start using the machine.
Multiple Load Capacities – Use the desired tray capacity for your storage needs. Each tray capacity is monitored in the software to ensure no tray will be overloaded.
Color Change (RAL) – RAL color changes are available for an additional charge.
Preventative Maintenance Packages – An annual inspection program designed to extend the life of the VLM.
