Viper Vertical Lift Module (VLM)
and Vertical Storage Automated Material Handling System

Vertical Lift Module.The Viper™ VLM (Vertical Lift Module) consists of two columns of trays in the front and back with a robotic inserter/extractor running in the center delivering trays to an ergonomic work counter using an integrated controller and/or software. From large items to totes, containers, partitions and dividers to pallets the Viper VLM provides a fast and efficient storage and retrieval solution.

Viper™ VLMs Provide high density storage with 100% ergonomic accessibility with it's patented tilt tray delivery system and powerful onboard controls database package. It delivers a tray to the pick window and then the ViperTilt automatically lifts the rear of the tray up towards the operator from a 25 to 45 degree angle depending on the type of items being stored. The tilt tray design allows all operators to easily reach parts stored in the front and rear of the tray without stretching, reaching and bending. The tray and work counter can automatically raise or lower to each operator's preferred working height helping reduce the incidence of work related injuries.


Save Up to 85% of Floor Space

Vertical Lift Module. Storage cube is optimized down to one inch increments! The VLMs dynamic tray height sensor system automatically scans and optimizes the units storage density every time a tray is stored in the VLM. The Viper Vertical Lift Module's controls automatically directs every tray to the least amount of space possible within the unit. No VLM in the industry utilizes space better than a Sapient Automation Viper VLM!


The Viper VLM dynamic tray height measuring and storage system allows organizations to:

  • Eliminate moving or expansion costs
  • Consolidate multiple facilities or zones into existing space
  • Almost double existing storage capacity
  • Convert existing "storage space" into value added opportunities


The Viper VLM's range of ergonomic features helps provide:

  • Reduction or elimination of injuries and potential litigation
  • Ability to maximize an existing and aging work force
  • Increase productivity and accuracy by reducing "human error" due to fatigue
  • Help meet organization's OSHA requirements

Increase Productivity to 2/3

Vertical Lift Module.

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.

  • Turn three operators into one
  • Virtually eliminates costly mis-picks
  • Operators are in an easily supervised work area
  • Easily incorporates batch picking
  • Dual tray delivery for higher throughput requirements

Increased Security & Restricted Access

Vertical Lift Module.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.

  • Reduces shrinkage
  • Helps eliminate untimely inventory shortages
