Automated Library Storage

Current Obstacles in Traditional Libraries

Automated Vertical Storage

Aisles are consuming ample space throughout the library and shelving is difficult to access and reach. There is poor utilization of space with standard shelving units.

Vertical storage solutions

The time it takes for a librarian to locate and then find a book because of inaccurate placement after returning of the book.

Library storage

The time it takes to locate and return books (finding the actual information on the book number, and inaccuracy of location when putting it back, now making it unavailable to the next).

Vertical lift modules, also known as VLMs, are an enclosed series of trays that automatically brings products directly to the operator. They help increase warehouse productivity and save space in a warehouse or distribution center by utilizing the ceiling height.

Modula Lift is amongst the most reliable and advanced vertical storage solution available on the market. The revolutionary design of Modula Vertical Lift Modules allows shop floors, distribution centers, and facilities of all sizes to recover or preserve precious space while improving the speed, accuracy, and efficiency of their picking operations.

 

For Example:

Storing product vertically, you can condense 9,050 square feet of traditional storage into 150 square feet of vertical storage. You can store all of your raw materials in one compact area. Additionally, most virtual lift modules can be built within 1” of the height of the ceiling for maximum space. As with all AS/RS equipment, only one operator can achieve picking and putting rates up to five times that of traditional storage.

Why Use Vertical Storage?

  • Consolidate and recover floor space- (no more aisles)
  • Double square footage capacity/ability
  • Books come out directly to librarian- no more travel time to find book
  • Software will allow for librarian to enter book by name/claim #, etc. and the system will immediately begin locating the item
