Schaefer's LogiMat Vertical Carousel-
A Vertical Lift Module (VLM), like Schaefer's LogiMat Vertical Carousel, is an automated storage and retrieval unit consisting of an extractor mechanism, located between two sections of stationary racking, inside a metal enclosure
A series of trays inserted in the front and rear racks are used to store product. When activated, the extractor device brings a requested tray from the rack to a workstation built into the front of the unit.
VLMs enable a relatively large inventory to be directed to a picker at one fixed location. By eliminating the climbing, reaching, and bending necessary to pick from multiple levels, VLMs produce a more efficient "parts to picker" instead of "picker to parts" workflow increasing worker safety and productivity.
Leading companies use Schaefer's LogiMat to increase storage density, throughput, and material handling efficiency while reducing inventory losses and labor costs. They efficiently deliver product to the operator, yielding a low-floor-space way of storing, securing, and retrieving anything from small parts to fixtures and tools.
Schaefer's LogiMat vertical lift module takes advantage of unused overhead space found in many manufacturing and distribution facilities. Enhanced productivity, greater security and space savings of up to 90% give PC2 users a significant edge over their competition.
Features and Options - Powerful, Heavy-Duty Vertical Rack and Pinion Drive
The LogiMat eliminates hoist chains and uses more costly rack and pinion drives for greater speed and reliability. Unlike chains that stretch and cause extractor positioning errors, the rack and pinion drive accurately positions with a precise,
This option automatically pre-positions the next tray in the pick sequence, so the moment an operator is done with the current tray, the next tray is ready for picking.
