Bar Stock VLS
Vidir’s Bar Stock Vertical Lift System (or VLS) 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.
Vidir’s Bar Stock VLS is a value-added solution for warehouse automation programs, and improves both productivity and safety.
Increase Available Inventory
Significant increases in useable inventory capacity are realized by safely utilizing overhead space with automated longspan shelving. A contained storage environment prevents material damage during storage and retrieval functions. Reduction in bulky static shelving and reserved forklift routes results in greatly increased storage capacity to grow your business without the need for a larger warehouse.
Increased accessibility and improved product flow will result in less costs and more tangible ROI as the time required to transition from storage processing decreases. Eliminate disruption in adjacent work cells caused by required forklift operation during processes. Available integration into warehouse automation processes further decreases retrieval times, allowing for increased productivity, efficiency, and customer satisfaction.
Increase Health & Safety
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. The reduction in forklift presence required due to integration within warehouse automation greatly reduces the potential for accidents. Eliminating the need for storage and retrieval on static shelving at unsafe heights with a forklift greatly increases safety with each product touchpoint that is removed.
Decrease Product Damage
Product damage is a calculable expense for manufacturers. Each touchpoint for the product offers another opportunity for forklift damage, driver error, and accidents. Single-point storage and integrated retrieval eliminates many possibilities for product damage, and can often be one of the major factors driving quick and significant ROI along with greatly increased efficiency.
