Voice Directed Vertical Storage Units


The latest generation VLM from Ferretto Group, the Vertimag, is a tier 1 VLM platform. The system is based on a modular design and can be scaled to a customer's specific size requirement, utilizing the entire vertical height of a building. Numina Group's RDS Voice Picking coupled with Ferretto' s VLM combines two highly efficient and robust technologies into a single process; delivering faster product picking/retrieval with improved DC operation storage density.
The Vertimag is considered one of the most robust VLM units on the market today. Eliminating service calls and reducing maintenance to a minimum was a design objective incorporated from the early stages of the VLM design. Vertimag technical features increase both shelf/tray size and load capacity with significantly higher storage and retrieval cycles while maintaining stated speed at full load capacity.
The design allows heights of the VLM to go beyond 50 ft with mechanically transportable storage shelves/trays ranging in size up to  13L x 3 ft deep with weight capacity of up to 2204 lb. This provides storage density of more than 30% SKU capacity in as little as 200 square feet of floor space.

Ferretto Group's Vertimag vertical storage and retrieval units provide fast, efficient goods-to-person picking. The  VLM's can be used stand-alone for parts and kitting in manufacturing and distribution, in a pod array of two or more synchronized units or in a hybrid design combining the dense VLM automated storage and retrieval technology within a traditional pick module . The hybrid design provides cost, space and labor savings for both new and existing order fulfillment operations.

Numina Group's Tier One WCS, RDS,Real-time Distribution System manages the entire order fulfillment operation.  Solutions can be deployed in a highly modular pick, pack, and ship system to provide clients an entire order fulfillment automated distribution operation. RDS includes software modules to manage order release and work balancing using lean design practices with voice directed work activities for order picking, lot and serial ID barcode or RFID track and trace and conveyor systems with  in-line scale, print and apply labeling and packing and shipping sorters; providing a turn-key order fulfillment solution.
