The Textile magazine|October 2020
At a time when the price of land is skyrocketing, Rabatex Industries is giving India a revolutionary product to manage space constraints.

Rabatex Industries’ Vertical Lift Module (VLM) is an automated electronic machine with human-machine interface (HMI), height sensors, space management and weight sensors. The company will sell it to industries that need to store large quantities of products in small spaces in order to overcome challenges of quick access of components while multiplying 5-30 times the space available in vertical storage. VLM is a vertical storage machine segregated into trays. Each tray has a capacity of storing goods weighing 200-700 kg. Thus, 100 trays can offer storage space for goods weighing 50,000 kg! The largest machine is 24 metres tall while the shortest is 2 metres tall. And the larger the product, the lower the price!

Since computerised facilities are equal for all, smaller machines will be comparatively costly against the taller ones. The machines incorporate Japanese and European automation technology to record data about every user and usage. For example, one can log in to the server and notify the activity of a certain tray. If a tray is named X, you can store, extract and restore the tray as many times you need. With computerisation, every data related to the usage of the tray will be recorded. The product is shared in levels and people who can access the machine can keep a tab on the usage. The process helps keep track of the amount of stock available in the machine. Moreover, the internal software facilitates Management Information System (MIS).

The one stop solution to professional manpower requirements

Almost two decades back, someone spotted dearth of efficient and well-trained security personals in public places. Most of us desire to get the comfort of getting all our mundane chores carried out by sincere and skillful individuals. Life is so easy when you have somebody at your doorstep to keep a genuine security check 24X7. The Banks and its customers take a breath of relief when they see a guard standing out with a gun on his shoulder. In case of emergencies these gentlemen put their lives in danger to guard people and organizations they are catering their services to. The scope of employment is immense in this sector and it’s no less than a parallel battalion of security force. Mr. Bijender Kumar Panchal, Managing Director and a visionary who started this mission in year 2000 with nearly zero investment is managing few thousand guards under one roof. He shared that “almost fifty to sixty percent staff are the ones who have been with our agency since its very beginning”.
