Hatfield, PA, US, February 14, 2012 -- The new Viper Vertical Lift Module
(VLM) automatic tray height scanning system and tray design can provide
more than 50% more storage density while allowing organizations to lower
their automated storage and retrieval systems acquisition cost. The new
Viper Vertical Lift Module automatic tray height scanning system
determines each trays exact storage height requirement down to a one inch
increment automatically every time a tray is retrieved. The VLMs control
system determines the optimum storage position in the unit based on
optimizing space and retrieval time.

The new tray design uses a number of enhancements to provide increased
levels of storage capacity. The Viper VLM tray now uses thinner side
walls, flat bottoms and no dividers or support cross members in the open
storage area. Likewise, the trays are available in two, three and four
meter widths at very economical levels and ideal for order picking
applications.

The flat bottom design eliminates the need for tray liners which increase
costs and take space. The thinner side walls provide more storage space.
Unlike many other VLMs, the new Viper Vertical Lift Module VLM trays, up
to four meters wide provide, a clear and unobstructed storage space. By
eliminating reinforcement cross members in the storage area of the tray
users are able to receive increased storage capacity and far easier
storage and retrieval management.

The ergonomic material handling Viper VLM’s rack constructed design
allows trays to be economical at not only a standard two and three meter
widths, but at an extra wide four meter width. The extra wide tray widths
in the automated storage and retrieval system also provides more parts
available for picking on each tray which increases productivity while
reducing labor costs.

The Viper VLM’s unique collection of features allows organizations to
reduce man-hours by eliminating wasted walk and search time plus pick
with more accuracy. A click of a button or scan of a bar code activates
the VLM and the ViperTilt angles the tray for easy picking, the
adjustable work counter moves to that operators preferred work height,
and the LaserViper™ illuminates the exact item to pick. Fast, simple and
easy. Likewise, dual tray delivery can be utilized to pick from one tray
and have the second tray waiting to be presented instantly for even
faster throughput and productivity.
From an electronic door sealing off the pick window to restricting access
by operator and to only allow access to specific trays to specific
operators. The closed nature of the Viper VLM makes it a natural for
sensitive, costly and highly desirable items. Likewise, logs and reports
can track which operators accessed specific trays and when to provide an
additional deterrent. The Viper VLM reduces shrinkage and helps eliminate
untimely inventory shortages.
