New Vertical Lift Module by Diamond Phoenix Compliments a Complete Line of Order Fulfillment Technologies



Diamond Phoenix is pleased to announce the newest product in their family of order picking technologies. The SMARTdepot(TM) Cross-bay(TM) Vertical Lift Module (VLM) has been developed to provide our customers with the best system features available for a vertical storage unit today. Features include a Multi-bay(TM) design to maximize storage space and minimize operational complexity. The Multi-bay(TM) unit with patent pending Cross-bay(TM) technology allows for product in any storage bay to be delivered to an operator at any workstation. Additionally, the new Smart-Access(TM) Profile System allows each user to have unique settings identified by their personal user ID. These settings may include: preferred workstation heights, personal tray locations, unique languages, and restricted tray locations for security purposes. The SMARTdepot(TM) operates on a Windows 2000 platform and can easily be interfaced to many WMS systems or other Host architectures.

The Diamond Phoenix SMARTdepot(TM) VLM provides significant space savings when compared to a more traditional static shelving system. Storage density increases can result in floor space recovery of more than 75%. Picking productivity can also be increased by up to 2.5 times because walking and searching times are significantly reduced or eliminated. With many picking situations the never-wait tray queuing feature of the SMARTdepot(TM) keeps the user busy picking instead of waiting. "With many companies focusing on productivity improvements, the Diamond Phoenix SMARTdepot(TM) will dramatically improve bottom line performance," says Robert Rienecke, Vice President of Marketing.

Robert Rienecke stated that, "We looked at many product features available in the market when we were developing our VLM. We elected to improve upon those and offer new features to provide one of the most technologically superior VLM products in the market."
