Trays are stored in front and back of the system, in between them an extractor moves up & down with the help of wire rope and drum. It is a four point suspension platform, which is more stable than two suspension platform. Advanced PLC guides the extractor to extract your desired tray and deliver at the Access opening.

At the time of tray goes inside the machine stored goods height measured by sensors and also the weight; base on that system check required space to store the tray in the system and extractor will store it in few seconds. All the trays will be stored in 25 mm height pitch.

There is safety light curtain barrier at the access area to guarantees safety of your operator while storing and retrieving the trays.

Alpha VLM is the ideal solution to store small and medium size parts, which need safe storage and quick retrieval.


Space Optimization

  • ALPHA VLM creates High Storage Capacity on its small foot prints, which guarantees maximum storage density to save maximum possible space.

  • The storage trays are able to be stored efficiently with the unit’s storage adjustability on 25 mm increments in combination with the available tray sidewall extensions as well as partitions used inside the trays gives maximum flexibility compares to Conventional methods of storing.

Time Saving

  • ALPHA VLM Technology taking goods directly to man.
  • Software that speeds-up picking and put-down operations.
  • Operating conventional Racking systems takes more time, as users need to walk long distances.
  • No halt times as the operator and machine work simultaneously together.


  • In conventional storage system, users have to bend, stretch or even climb ladders to retrieve stored parts. ALPHA VLM allows you to protect the safety of your personnel with maximized ergonomics of the work station. The ALPHA VLM is based on the “goods to man” concept, avoiding danger for the operator.
