Apr32017Introducing Intralogistics Belt Bend Curves - The TS-TR100
Gramac Quartz Belt Bends: designed to smoothly change the travel direction of products within high speed handling systems. Gramac Quartz is the division of Amber Industries Ltd which has specialised for over 30 years in the manufacture of Belt Bends for many different applications and combinations of load duty, arc and width formats. Its TS-TR100 range of belt bends have been purposely designed for incorporation into the most demanding a handling environments.
Gramac Quartz Belt Bends have a proven track record of longevity and reliable operation in handling systems around the globe. When operating under normal conditions and properly maintained a lifespan in excess of 15 years can be anticipated. All Gramac Quartz Belt Bends use the ‘Friction Drive’ method whereby friction between the belt and a drive pulley provides the motive force for the belt. This method has three clear advantages over the positive mechanical drive method.

Mar142017MCM Overhead Conveyors Modular Designs
The MCM Conveyors division of Amber Industries Ltd developed and manufactures its own comprehensive and high quality range of light, medium and heavy duty overhead conveyor systems.
The modular design of these systems, combined with a range of standard accessories such as a selection of different radii horizontal and vertical bends, spinners, indexers, automatic load - unload units etc., enables them to be easily configured to suit the most complex routing and layout requirements of any manufacturing and assembly processes. Installation is quick and easy and the modular design also allows later extensions and system rearrangements to be undertaken.
A range of monorail overhead conveyors suitable for handling a wide variety of products from diverse industry sectors. They come in two types: 'enclosed chain' for light (up to 30Kg) loads to medium (up to 100Kg) loads where the powered chain runs in a pressed steel enclosed track section and ‘open chain’ for heavier (up to 500Kg) loads where the chain is slung under a rolled steel I-section using trolleys.
All enclosed chain overhead conveyors comprise a bi-planar chain powered by a drive unit and running in all enclosed track , the cross section of which can be either rectangular or a cruciform depending on the carrying capacity of the conveyor. Attached to the chain at regular intervals are pendants which protrude from a central slot in the underside of the track section and from which the product can be suspended.
Powertrack30/60/100 conveyor systems have carrying capacities of 30Kg to 100Kg per pendant respectively. The minimum pendant pitch varies for the different conveyors in the range. Increased product loadings can be accommodated by the use of a loadbar connecting two pendants to share the product load between them.
The open chain powertrack90/200/500 utilise a heavy-duty I-beam track section from which a drop forged chain is under slung by means of trolleys with their wheels running on the track section’s lower flange. The product load is also carried by these trolleys.
Open chain Powertrack conveyor systems have carrying capacities per 2 wheel trolley of 90Kg, 200Kg and 545Kg respectively. Increased product loads in excess of 4000Kg can be accommodated with the use of load-bars to spread the load between several trolleys. These conveyor systems are also suitable for high temperature environments up to 250 degree Centigrade.

Jul 19 2016MCM Overhead Conveyor Systems for Abattoirs
In the first half of this year MCM Conveyor Systems has experienced a high demand from the abattoir and meat processing industry for its overhead chain conveyor systems. MCM Conveyor Systems, a division of Amber Industries ltd, has a long track record and established reputation for manufacturing and supplying very reliable yet low maintenance overhead conveyor systems to abattoirs, either directly or via the abattoir equipment trade.
The operating environment in abattoirs is harsh. Equipment is regularly subjected to low temperatures, high pressure washing and corrosive attack from animal waste and strong chemical cleaning agents. The engineers at MCM Conveyor Systems design and build their abattoir overhead conveyor systems to deal with these extreme conditions. All components, including the track, chain, drive units, lubricators, wiring and control devices are specially designed and selected to ensure the whole conveyor system operates reliably throughout a long lifespan. MCM’s overhead conveyor systems can be supplied with the following features and options:
- Manual or fully automated
- Bi-directional track with tight radius bends to minimise ’system footprint’ where processing lines are constrained by limited available floor space
- Track in either stainless steel or dipped galvanized mild steel
- Product can either be hung directly from the overhead conveyor or alternatively from separate rails in turn pushed by the conveyor
- A selection of chain bearing types depending on specific conditions and budgets, i.e.
i)Fully sealed ‘food’safe’ greased for life bearings,
ii) Full complement bearings
iii) Stainless steel balls
iv) Yellow zinc passivated sintered iron cage
Our in-house teams of mechanical and electrical design engineers give MCM the capability to deliver bespoke conveyor systems to precisely meet individual customer requirements.
