Modula's VLMs Stood Tall in Chicago's McCormick Place During IMTS 2016
Modula’s VLMs stood tall in Chicago's McCormick Place during last week’s IMTS 2016
Modula successfully took part as an exhibitor in the recent IMTS 2016 show at Chicago's McCormick Place where nearly 2,000 exhibitors and 115,000 visitors gathered to discover the latest manufacturing products and technologies.
Modula selected North America's largest manufacturing exhibit to introduce Modula OnePick, a highly customizable edition of their original Lift. This innovative product, that combines the vertical lift module's technology with a sophisticated automated system for the picking or replenishment of a single product at a time, was received with positive feedback by the many visitors who stopped by at the Modula booth.
“IMTS was certainly a perfect platform to validate our new innovation and launch this product in the North American market”, explains Miguel Fabra – Modula’s CEO. “Talking personally with the many visitors who came to our booth, we have had again the proof on how much pressure manufacturers are increasingly experiencing to close time gaps, keep employees safe, have products stored in a secure environment and avoid shipping mistakes”. – he stated.
Great interest was also raised by the Modula Lift, the vertical storage solutions designed to optimize space and improve picking and storage operations. This Vertical Lift Module (VLM) utilizes the full ceiling height of a facility thus maximizing the storage potential. Items are stored in units up to 46 feet high, in a safe, secure environment and delivered automatically to the operator, avoiding unnecessary bending, walking and reaching for parts.
“Recovering valuable floor space is becoming a major need also in North America. Customers are literally stunned when they discover how a vertical storage solution can help them saving up to 90% of floor space, utilizing the previously unused height of their facility” – Fabra further added.
The great number of visitors and inquiries confirms the growing interest in the market for storage and retrieval system. After this successful exhibit, Modula looks ahead optimistically to reach new great results.
