    Tecomet Choose Amber For A Vertical Lift With Integrated Transfer Unit

    The Casting Department at Tecomet, Sheffield recognized a need to improve their existing processes and efficiencies to accommodate their current and future production demands. A key improvement area identified was the offloading of the final castings. Amber Industries were invited by Tecomet to consider these problems and propose an alternative solution that would not only upgrade their process but would offer a cost-effective solution that would support their production demands well into the future.

    Curved Plastic Modular Belt Conveyor System

    Amber Conveyors have recently manufactured a Plastic Modular Belt Conveyor which is currently undertaking testing and trials prior to system integration in Poland. The actual belt allows for cornering using slides and guides under the plastic modular. Modular plastic belt conveyors are often used in the food and pharmaceutical industries because they can be washed down, however they are extremely versatile and can be suitable for a great many application. Plastic modular belts are made from small plastic sections which are hinged together with linking pins to form a belt, typically with a ‘chain mail’ like appearance.
