Materials Storage: Shuttle Vertical Lift Module

The KardexRemstar Shuttle® Vertical Lift Module (VLM) is an enclosed system of vertically arranged trays, an extraction platform and a series of computerized controls that delivers items to an ergonomically positioned workstation. The VLM automatically locates and retrieves stored items with a push of a button or a scan of a bar code.

Several Shuttle VLMs can be placed side-by-side or back-to-back to form a compact and efficient automated storage and retrieval system. KardexRemstar’s CubeStar® technology combines hardware and controls to give the Shuttle VLM up to 50 percent more storage capacity than Vertical Lift Modules without CubeStar technology.
