  • Modula Slim
    The same technology found in our LIFT model, but in a much smaller footprint. You can store all the materials and products in your SLIM modules, such as loose materials, containers, small items, spare parts, coils, bottles, and more....

  • Dynamic Storage Without Fixed Heights and with Truly SLIM Depth

    Modula's SLIM is the smart choice for anyone looking for a vertical automated storage solution with complete flexibility. The same technology found in our LIFT model, but in a much smaller footprint. You can store all the materials and products in your SLIM modules, such as loose materials, containers (boxes, bins, cartons, cases), small items, spare parts, coils, bottles, and more.

    Quick to Install. Easy to Use.

    Modula's SLIM is built on a preassembled base module which is easy to ship and quick to install. This means that this VLM can be set up in your plant and ready in 48 hours. It modulates SLIM also integrates easily with your company's ERP system thanks to the Modula WMS (Warehouse Management System). It's not easy to install, but it's easy for your operators to work with the SLIM module. They will use an intuitive touch screen interface that is ergonomically integrated into the bay, like the pick complete button, EKS reader, LED bar etc. The staff of the SLIM and you can start realizing ROI with the incredible picking speed increase at your facility. 

    Total payload is up to 55.115 lbs with 22.96 ft in height and no more than 66 ”in depth.

    What can Modula SLIM do for you?

    • Recovers floor space, optimizing storage density
    • Reducing picking times
    • Makes materials accessible to operators, quickly and ergonomically
    • Keeps stock levels and inventory inventory under control
    • Integrates easily into your company processes by communicating with any ERP system
    • Tracks picking and restocking operations , controlling who has access and logs their activity

  • Modula OnePick

  • Automation at the highest level with the new vertical warehouse; OnePick. Its automatic bay doesn't require operators.

    OnePick is a Modula Lift automatic vertical warehouse with a special picking bay equipped with a Cartesian robot moving along 2 axes (X and Y).

    The bay is set at a predefined height so it integrates seamlessly with rollers, conveyors, belts and other systems completely autonomously. In the OnePick bay, a gripper device retrieves the box and places it in front of the bay on an external surface or conveyor system.

    Sophistication in Automation.

    OnePick is the ideal system for stocking in the same warehouse boxes, bins and containers with:

    • Different weights
    • Different volumes
    • Different sizes 
    • Different dimensions

    What it is and how it works

    OnePick combined with a handling system allows installation of an automatic vertical warehouse even in areas that are difficult to access, uncomfortable or far from where the goods are needed. OnePick's operation is based on WMS software which, amongst other things, also maps the location of the tray containers. The gripper device is guided by this mapping and retrieves the requested items autonomously. This type of automatic transport system will then be able to convey the retrieved materials to another location, even if far away.

    Like a Modula Lift, it:

    • Saves floor space
    • Stores items safely
    • Automatically manages inventory
    • Tracks items
    • Saves picking time
    • Prevents retrieval and delivery phase errors

    Retrieval from multiple rows

    The OnePick warehouse retrieves from multiple rows in the same tray. An advanced system synchronizes the grip device and the tray movements. This makes box retrieval extremely precise, even when the tray has a random geometric layout and/or on more than one row. No matter what the tray layout is, it is perfectly reachable. OnePick technology translates into tray space optimization, the entire surface is used, even when the boxes have different geometry, volumes or shapes. And there’s more thanks to the Modula warehouse dynamic tray height storage, the spaces between trays can be optimized and boxes and containers of different unit heights can be stored with great flexibility and efficiency.

    Never before seen flexibility!

    OnePick trays are fitted with special accessories, like partitions and dividers to organize the trays to store a number of different boxes and containers. Thanks to these accessories, the tray layout is incredibly flexible and easy to modify. The dynamic tray height storage combined with 1” tray adjustability allows for an optimized usage of the VML’s internal volume. At every material intake, the VLM controls the height of the material, checks the available spaces inside the warehouse and selects the perfect storage location in order to minimize the internal space waste. No more useless gaps between the stored trays!
