The LOGIMAT Vertical Lift Module is an automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) similar to an oversized drawer cabinet with two stacks of trays - one stack of trays at the front and the other at the back. Between the two rows of trays is a lift. This lift climbs the entire height of the vertical storage machine to remove an individual tray from the respective positions and delivers it to the access opening for the operator. The unit has an opening at the front for easy, and secure access, in which users can select specific trays via a user interface. The unit sends the tray down to the opening and enables the user to pick their item safely and securely.

VLMs save an enormous amount of floor space, which means items take minimal square footage since everything is stored vertically. Users incorporate VLMs and similar ASRS solutions for various applications too— everything from small parts to high value items or pharmaceuticals. In addition, LOGIMAT comes with options that make order picking virtually error-free and provide ergonomic benefits to increase picking speeds.

The LOGIMAT® can be utilized as an autonomous system or integrated into an automated application. It is equipped with a PLC as a standard feature. A variety of control and software options are available for your individual configuration. These are based on the WAMAS® software from SSI SCHAEFER which is in use worldwide.

From the connection to a higher level ERP system to article management and order processing: Every project is based around a clear and reliable standard solution that can be flexibly tailored to your logistics processes through simple expansions. The storage lift is operated via a touchscreen with an intuitive user interface.

SSI LOGIMAT® Icons Advantages


The LogiTilt is an incline option that enables the ergonomic removal of goods from the tray. This option reduces the removal depth and includes LogiWork mechanical. The tilt angle is adjustable from 10 to 30 degrees and is adjustable for each individual per tray. The tilt angle is adjustable in 5 degree intervals.


Let LOGIWORK adjust to a specific height for an associate. By adjusting the support and tray brackets, the LOGIMAT tray height can move up to 25mm increments. This feature makes picking easier and more ergonomic for every user.


LogiGate is a hub gate that separates the elevator travel shaft and the access opening. The hub gate consists of two parts. The two pieces connect via a chain, and the lower half of the gate acts as a counterweight. This function halves the cycle times and saves energy.


Reduce picking errors by utilizing the LogiPointer option for LOGIMAT. An optical indication of the correct storage position is visible via a laser pointer.


Parallel, time-delayed tray movements for improved performance. While removing goods from the first tray, the next tray is already moving to the operating opening.


The LogiSpeed option has a standard motor with 9kW output. An output of 16kW is achievable using a frequency converter for the standard drive. A maximum elevator speed of 1.7 m/s is possible by utilizing another gear ratio.


The LogiPull is a manual, full pull out tray function with two foldout tray mounts. These mounts fit onto the racking uprights, but fixation to the floor is not necessary. The access opening and the folding handles fit with the roller tracks, which minimizes the manual force of the tray extension.


LogiDrive is an automatic feature where the tray extends outwards towards the individual. The roller tracks allow for a smooth and quiet operation. This ergonomic feature is great for applications that require picking throughout the day.
