Vidir’s Vertical Lift System (VLS) is an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/AR) that utilizes an elevator to climb the front of the tower to deposit and retrieve pallets/drawers weighing up to 5,000 lbs. and deliver them directly to ground level for further processing, increasing material storage and flow.
VLS Sheet Metal
The Vertical Lift is an automated sheet metal storage system designed to safely take advantage of high ceilings while implementing a goods-to-operator workflow. Basic ease of access and faster retrieval times can improve capital equipment output by up to 15-20%. Vidir’s Sheet Metal Vertical Lift System is a value-added solution for warehouse automation programs and improves both productivity and safety.
VLS Bar Stock
The Vertical Lift for bar stock and linear materials is adaptable and can accommodate a multitude of sizes and applications. The cartridges are designed to accept linear objects such as bar stock, pipes, and beams. They can also be custom fit with molds for custom applications such as press brake dies which keeps your material storage safe, organized, and effective.

Automated storage systems can greatly increase workplace safety by providing a secure and controlled delivery method for bulky and heavy items that are stored overhead. Additionally, significant increases in useable storage capacity are realized by safely utilizing overhead space with automated long-span shelving. Increased accessibility and improved product flow will result in fewer costs and tangible ROI as the time required to transition from storage to processing decreases.
