Amber Automation is the division of Amber Industries which specialises in automated conveyor systems for carrying unit loads such as totes, cartons, pallets etc. sometimes referred to as floor conveyor systems. These types of conveyor system, which can range from simple manually operated single function conveyors to complex fully automated systems, are extensively used in warehouses, distribution centres, parcel sorting depots and many types of factories where unit loads need to be moved.
Amber Automation Powered & Gravity Roller Conveyors
Roller conveyors are versatile and relatively low cost so they make up the main part of many unit load conveyor systems. They can be either free running relying on gravity to move the load or powered where the roller provide the motive force.
Amber Automation Level & Incline Belt Conveyors
Belt conveyor systems offer a solution for handling product loads which are irregular in shape and do not always have a rigid flat lower surface required for roller conveyors. They also have the advantage that they can be set on an incline or decline in order to change the elevation of the product load.
Amber Automation Pallet & Heavy Duty Chain Conveyors
Chain conveyors, sometimes referred to as drag chain conveyors, are comprised of 2, 3 or multiple strands of roller bush chain guided on parallel tracks.
Commercial laundries typically process over 500,000 items of loose linen per week and to do this efficiently automation is essential.
Steel Slat, Modular Plastic & Wire Mesh Belt Conveyors
The moving belts of each of these categories of conveyor have properties and feature which make them suitable for particular applications.
