Modifying Remstar's Shuttle VLM for Varied Access
Modifying extraction access points adds to system versatility.
Westbrook, ME — The Shuttle® Vertical Lift Module (VLM) from Remstar International Inc., a company of the Kardex AG Remstar International (KRI) Group of Zurich, Switzerland, allows users to maximize their storage capabilities by consolidating multiple departments or work zones into one system using multiple pick windows.

By linking work areas, electronics companies can save up to 85 percent floor space, increase productivity up to 600 percent and enhance operator ergonomics, reducing overall costs.

The Remstar Shuttle VLM provides immediate access to parts via an extraction platform and computerized controls for automated storage and retrieval operations. The ability to change pick window height or location any time pre or post installation provides electronics organizations the flexibility to change. By doing so, the unit can be adapted to the changes in the stored products' physical characteristics, warehouse procedure or location requirements. The small footprint and modular design of the Shuttle VLM can save up to 85 percent of otherwise wasted floor space and reduce capital acquisition costs.

Organizations can link multiple floors and work zones, eliminating wasted time transporting and searching for material from one area to another, increasing productivity and inventory accuracy. Providing 100 percent accessible storage, the system delivers stored items at an ergonomically optimized height eliminating bending, stretching and reaching, which in turn reduces worker injury.
