Vertical Carousels are manufactured in a variety of different configurations to provide specific automated storage solutions.

The carriers which are attached to the chain drive in Vertical Carousels are customized to fit your product and storage specifications. E.G.: A standard open carrier for the Shelving Carousel is 18.5”H x 20”D. Intermediary shelves and dividers can be added to partition the carrier, and carriers can also be custom designed to accept unique profiles. Carriers can be open or have a 6” lip on the front (creating a self-contained storage unit).

Automated Vertical Carousels:
Built with a series of carriers attached in fixed locations to a chain drive. Carriers are sent in a vertical loop around a track in forward and reverse directions (similar to a ferris wheel). Carriers are all uniform. The distance between carriers can be customized depending on storage items. Both VLMs and Carousels significantly reduce storage footprint by going vertical.

Automated Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs):
VLMs generally consist of two columns of trays with a mechanical inserter/extractor positioned in the center which automatically locates and retrieves trays as needed for dynamic storage and retrieval. Lifts tend to be deeper than carousels because of the 2 columns of trays. Trays come in a variety of sizes and load capacities. VLMs usually handle double the load capacity over similar height carousels. Both VLMs and Carousels significantly reduce storage footprint by going vertical.
