Vidir Solutions has a long history of making the world’s products safely accessible. Since 1986, you’ve trusted to deliver automated vertical storage solutions that meet your unique requirements.

Now, we’re expanding upon that core goal with a new innovation set to help us build on our automated storage and retrieval solutions to meet and exceed even more of your operational goals.

Meet the Vidir VLM

Vertical lift modules, or vertical lift machines, help users efficiently pick products while also maximizing your use of space – and the Vidir VLM is revolutionizing those capabilities with an innovative and forward-looking solution.

Our VLM automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) provides smart, adaptable inventory management that maximizes density and increases productivity. It leverages two tray towers, one in both the front and back, and a center elevator. Trays are extracted and presented quickly and at an ergonomic height for the operator.

These vertical towers keep the VLM footprint to a minimum, leveraging optimized storage density that helps you cut your own storage footprint by up to 85%, and keep your employees safe.

Features and Benefits of the Vidir VLM

Our VLM brings:

  • Automatic Height Detection
    Cutting-edge technology and software allow the VLM to accurately measure the amount of space required for each tray, then calculate the optimal and efficient storage location to maximize inventory density every time.

  • Intelligent Software
    In addition to aiding in the optimization of inventory density, our VLM’s software keeps pick times to a minimum and ensures a smooth material handling process.

  • Total Control
    Our VLM’s easy-to-use software interface allows you to pick and stock item lists, integrate with ERP systems, run reports, and maximize productivity and ROI with remote access for service diagnostics and more.

  • Best-in-Class Innovations
    Our VLM includes industry-first servo motors offering higher velocity and accuracy and a best-in-class 10HP lift capacity. Additionally, our VLM features a chain drive, providing unmatched performance, durability and safety.

To learn more about our innovative VLM and how it can help you increase safety, boost productivity, reduce labor costs, maximize storage, improve inventory management and shrink your storage footprint, visit our website.

What is BOPIS?

Posted by on in Products

b2ap3_thumbnail_BOPOS-machine.jpgBOPIS, an industry acronym that means buy online and pick up in store, is a new type of distribution model that
combines an online presence with a physical location. In order to reduce delivery times and eliminate shipping
costs, as well as improve customer service, retailers are offering their customers the option to have their online
purchases available for immediate pick-up at their storefronts. Other terms used in this new and growing space are
BOPIL, meaning buy online pickup in locker, BOSS, buy online ship-to store, and Click and Collect.

Brick and Mortar retailers are connecting the gaps in their online e-commerce strategies and physical footprint with their BOPIS
programs. The program leverages the traditional strength of the Brick and Mortar approach with the convenience found online which is helping to recover and replace the foot traffic and customer loyalty lost due to shifting buying patterns and online retail giants. BOPIS is allowing retailers the ability to achieve their ultimate goal of giving a great customer experience, creating that necessary customer loyalty for a successful business. A study on consumer buying trends during the 2018 holiday shopping season showed that Click and Collect was a competitive advantage for Brick and Mortar retailers.

General productivity at sheet metal fabricators and machine shops, is measured by how much input is required to get a certain output. Often "O.K-looking" numbers show up. Fair enough. 

But if you look a little closer, at how much capital and space is wasted with poor material storage & retrieval, the landscape changes dramatically. Nice looking numbers turn out to be rather bad looking numbers instead.

Material storage and retrieval is one of the biggest waste factors. Most plants that I have seen (and believe me, I have seen a lot of plants) seriously struggle with storing and handling material. Sheet / plate as well as bar-stock (long-span) material.

Of course, Just In Time delivery of the material to your plant would be great. You would not even have a storage issue. But keep dreaming. Reality is different.

It feels a little paradoxical, equating lifesaving devices with clutter and their placement with inconvenience, but the standard remains — hospitals are to maintain free and unobstructed access to all exits, minimize fire risk, eliminate pickup parking lots, establish a clear line and destination for bed and patient transport, and maintain the integrity of the means of egress, for starters.

In previous years, The Joint Commission has cited more than 45 percent of hospitals with “insufficient compliance,” noting specific violations in hospital corridors and the storage therein. Crash carts, computers, empty beds and supply carts left unattended in corridors and paths merit such violations, which, in turn, spurs the conversation of reducing clutter in corridors per relevant regulations.
