Vertical Lift Module LOGIMAT

SSI LOGIMAT® storage lift

The SSI LOGIMAT®  storage lift is your storage and picking solution in one!

SSI SCHAEFER’s SSI LOGIMAT® vertical storage lifts provide you with a storage and picking solution in one system. The state-of-the-art storage lift utilizes the goods-to-person principle and sets standards in performance and ergonomic operating comfort.

The storage lift can be compared with an over-sized drawer cabinet with front and rear rows of trays. A lift is located between the two rows, pulls out the trays, and transports them to the correct position of the operating opening, allowing the operator to perform the picking operation with the highest level of accuracy.

Diverse designs for diverse requirements

The SSI LOGIMAT®can be optimally adapted to all site conditions with eight different model widths and two model depths along with a freely selectable machine height of up to 24 meters. The compact design makes maximum use of the available height on site. Features such as tray storage with a 25 mm spacing, the FIX height storage strategy, and/or intelligent height optimization (IHO), or trays, flexibly designed for space and weight optimization, enable high-density storage with the smallest surface area.

The system adapts to all your site conditions, whether separate supply and removal sides, two-sided supply or removal one level higher, whether the system is located in the basement, as a ceiling breakthrough, or recessed into the floor. The SSI LOGIMAT® storage lift can be fitted on the external facade of a warehouse, if necessary. This construction serves to reduce the construction costs for expanding the warehouse to a minimum.

Find answers on all issues related to our Vertical Lift Modules.

A Vertical Lift Module is an advanced concept/design that came from the Vertical Carousel.

  • The carousel system uses a chain system that move carriers along the chain in a vertical motion. Since it is the first storage and retrieval system developed, user will need to consider an overloading situation since everything hangs from a chain (so you always have to consider what is on the other side). Think of it as a ferris wheel, in which the gondolas have to be of a same height, weight in order to maintain a balance, you sometimes have to let several empty gondolas pass before one climbs in.

  • A Vertical Lift Module (VLM), on the other hand, doesn’t carry such burdens. In a warehouse environment, you need to be flexible in the process of retrieving and storage of articles. You can futureproof the storage space by increasing the height of the VLM or by reducing the height of the goods.

Do I need a large space for the vertical lift machine system?

Space is one of the most important factors in every warehouse. Since Vertical Lift Modules are built upwards and not horizontally, hence they increase the storage density in the warehouse area over a few square meters and at the same time they enable the easier access to goods.

As the articles stored in the SSI Logimat are not visible, the user needs to access the parts using a password. It is also possible to select a user and assign him/her the appropriate authorization and even limit the trays that he/she can operate.

Each retrieval is booked directly at the storage lift and can be imported directly into the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system. The order picking list is visible on the SSI Logimat display and can be processed immediately. Therefore, the inventory is always up to date and no more paper is needed.

Minimum once a year maintenance is recommended for single shift and twice a year for double shift. Troubleshooting can be done remotely. 90% of the machine parts can be detected and rectified remotely.

An Automated picking involves picking goods / products that are carried out automatically by machines that are controlled using the PLC software and then picked up by the operator.

This process is also known as the "goods to man" principle. While manual picking or also known as “man to goods” is the process of picking the goods / products in which the operator searches for the location and retrieve the goods / products physically. Imagine automated picking like ordering food from ala-carte menu and your order is served on the table while manual picking is akin to choose your food from a buffet feast.

Vertical Lift modules are suitable for small and medium size goods, such as health and beauty products, spare parts, electronic parts, luxury goods, raw material and other goods or supplies in Production

Yes! SSI Logimat has more than 15 additional options you can add onto the standard machine. For more details you can contact us

The maximum Tray load Capacity is up to 700kg.

Yes, the integration of Vertical Lift Modules into an existing ERP environment (for example SAP) is a worthwhile goal in order to ensure complete integration into the intelligent material flow of a manufacturing company. But it is not mandatory. For simply storing and managing items, the machine does not have to be integrated into a higher-level ERP system, but can be implemented directly out-of-the-box.

Yes, the Vertical Lift Module is expandable, the controller can control multiple machines. For more details please email us at: [email protected]

Case Study C+C Krug

C+C Krug: The Path to Automation with SSI LOGIMAT® and WEASEL®
The plastic electroplating specialist C+C Krug GmbH took the path to semi-automation of logistics processes together with SSI SCHAEFER. Three
SSI LOGIMAT® Vertical Lift Modules, two automated guided vehicles, type WEASEL® and a short bin conveying system ensure efficient processes between warehouse and production.


The LMB storage lift container series has been specially designed for use with storage lifts. It is optimized for a tray depth of 800 mm and can also be divided up with additional partitions. This enables rapid and easy adaptation to your stored articles.
