Benefits of the New Automated Picking System

The Kardex Vertical Lift Module offers even greater flexibility thanks to various options available pre or post installation. It can be resized, moved and altered to meet changing business, facility and application requirements. The system can be installed in the direct vicinity of a production line in order to increase productivity and reduce floor space requirements. It can connect several floors or be installed outside the building with pass-through access.

How Does the Vertical Lift Module Work?

A vertical lift is an enclosed system of vertically arranged trays that are stored in the front and rear of the unit. There is an extractor located in the center, which automatically delivers trays with the stored items to the access opening at the push of a button or the scan of a bar code. Trays are automatically retrieved and delivered to a pick window for picking. These systems are modular and flexible in design, which enables future adjustments for your business needs.

Increase Your Bottom Line with Integrated Technologies:

Barcode scanners

Fast and easy integration of barcode scanners for order identification, picking and confirmation.

Conveyor systems

For quick picking and consolidation of orders, the connection of work zones via conveyor systems is an ideal solution. Items are delivered automatically to the access opening, picked and then placed into shipping containers on the conveyor.


To improve operators’ productivity, throughput and accuracy levels, Kardex offers several integrated pick-to-light technologies. The Shuttle XP can be equipped with LED Navigation, position indicators, light pointers and confirmation bars in the access opening.

Manipulation and lifting devices

Easy integration of hoists, cranes, grippers and manipulators for additional ergonomic material handling
