Overhead Conveyor Systems
'MCM's overhead conveyor systems have for over 40 years been used to improve the operational capacity and efficiency of many and varied types of industrial and manufacturing facilities. By the nature of their design and construction overhead conveyor systems enable the optimisation of available factory floor space. MCM’s wide range of overhead conveyor systems are used for many materials handling operations including; assembly lines, storage facilities, component distribution, waste removal, and surface finishing processes, e.g. shot-blasting, cleaning and de-greasing, painting, powder coating, plating and high temperature baking etc.
Our overhead conveyor systems are frequently found working in such industries as: automotive manufacturers, automotive component suppliers, commercial vehicles, construction and municipal plant, agricultural equipment, white and brown goods, abattoirs and meat processing plant and sometimes in more unusual settings like museum displays, exhibition displays and shop windows. Overhead conveyor systems area a highly versatile method of moving products and materials and their modular construction means they can readily be configured to a large variety of applications.
Floor Conveyor Systems
‘Floor Conveyors’ and ‘Floor Conveyor Systems’ are all-encompassing terms used in the Materials Handling industry to cover a large range of types of conveyor systems and conveyor equipment, the common element being that they are generally mounted directly on the floors within buildings.
Some of the more commonly used types of floor conveyors and floor conveyor systems are: gravity roller conveyors and skatewheel conveyors, flexible roller conveyors, ball table transfer units, powered roller conveyor systems, accumulation conveyors, belt conveyors & belt conveyor systems, plastic modular belt conveyors, assembly line conveyor systems, picking line conveyors, tote conveyor systems, case & carton conveyor systems, incline conveyors & mezzanine floor conveyors, inter-floor conveyor systems, heavy duty powered roller conveyors, pallet handling equipment and pallet conveyor systems, production line conveyor systems, industrial conveyors, chain conveyors, slat conveyors, shuttle car conveyors, in-floor conveyor systems, towline conveyors, power bend conveyors, spiral conveyors & elevators / lowerators.
Within the field of transporting, moving and handling materials and products floor conveyor systems have a vast number of applications. Big users of floor conveyor systems are the logistics and distribution industry, warehouses, e-commerce fulfilment centre, parcel handling depots, the printing and packaging industry, the food processing and drinks industry, and many other manufacturing industries such as automotive, white goods, etc.
Whether it’s a simple floor conveyor layout or a fully integrated floor conveyor system within a production or intralogistics facility Amber Automation has the expertise to design, develop and implement a bespoke floor conveyor system to exactly meet your business needs. Amber Automation’s team of experienced conveyor and control systems engineers will select the most appropriate conveyor technology to achieve the objective. They will not only use our own range of conveyors UK manufactured conveyor equipment but also use other suitable products available on the market.
Belt bends, belt curves, belt curve conveyors, belt turns, power bends, power curves, power turns, belt bend conveyors, curved belt conveyors, powered belt bends, powered belt bend conveyors, powered belt curves, powered belt curve conveyors, powered belt turns, spiral curves, spiral incline conveyors, spiral decline conveyors are all terms used to describe the same piece of equipment. Within this website we use the terms: belt bends or belt curves which are the most commonly used English terms. In other languages the commonly used terms are:
- German: Kurvengurtforderer, Gurtlebander
- French: Convoyeur courbe
- Spanish: Transportador de cinta curvado
- Italian: Transportore a nastro curvo, tranportatore curvilinei
Essentially belt bends are curved belt conveyors which enable the smooth change in direction of travel of a conveyed object whilst maintaining its orientation relative to the direction of travel. Amber Industries Ltd manufactures belt bends in the United Kingdom under the highly respected Gramac Quartz brand name.
The name ‘Gramac Quartz’ is synonymous with the unsurpassed reliability of its products and their ability to keep on providing top class performance and longevity under the most demanding operation conditions and the toughest of environments, e.g. extremes of temperature, humidity and airborne dust.
A large range of ‘standard footprint’ belt bends are available, however by investing in the latest technology Gramac Quartz’s design and manufacturing processes have the in-built flexibility and responsiveness to enable almost any ‘bespoke footprint’ belt bend to be offered to meet customer’s unique requirements.
Conveyor Units & Conveyor Modules
Single conveyor modules or conveyor units are the building blocks of an integrated conveyor system. Amber Conveyors is the division of Amber Industries ltd that offers a broad portfolio of separate high quality belt and roller conveyor modules to a diverse client base ranging from small re-sellers and integrators through to blue chips operating in the intra-logistics, parcel handling and e-commerce sectors.
From its UK manufacturing facility in Greater Manchester the company has developed and now supplies gravity, lineshaft & ZLP roller conveyor modules, pallet conveyor and heavy duty powered roller conveyor modules, belt and mezzanine floor conveyor units and a selection of mobile conveyor units predominantly for the parcel handling and e-commerce industries.
An overview of the range conveyor modules / units available is shown in the Conveyor Modules section of this website. Alternatively you can download one of the product brochures for more detailed information.
