Sheet Metal VLS

The sheet metal vertical lift system (VLS) is an automated storage and integration system created to maximize the use of tall ceilings while enabling a streamlined Goods-to-Operator workflow. By enhancing accessibility and reducing retrieval times, this system has the potential to boost capital equipment output by 15-20%. The sheet metal VLS serves as an advantageous addition to warehouse automation initiatives, enhancing productivity and safety.

  • Automatic controls featuring pallet selection
  • Emergency stops are located at the left and right of the tower
  • Overload sensing returns the lift to the home position when activated
  • Access restriction provided by fencing around the perimeter and light curtains prevents access during operation
  • Process brake and redundant brake engaged with the safety system
  • Each pallet is individually locked in place until released by the elevator
  • Motors: 2 x 5 HP motors, 1 x 3/4 HP motor
  • Safety system: designed to SIL3 / CAT4 / PL e
  • cCSAus mark
  • 2 year manufacturer’s warranty

Some of the industries and applications the sheet metal VLS is perfect for include:

  • Warehouse applications
  • Manufacturing industry
  • Construction industry
  • Metalworking

Increase your available inventory through combining several sheet metal racks into a single tower which directly feeds your processing machines. By implementing this storage solution, you can improve accessibility and product flow, thereby boosting efficiency. Health and safety is also benefited by this VLS as it serves as a secure and controlled delivery method for heavy pallets of sheet stored overhead. With this system, risk of product damage is also mitigated as single-point storage and integrated retrieval time reduces risk of forklift damage, driver error, and other accidents.
