Nov072019 Multi-Million Pound Overhead Conveyor System Nearing Completion

Amber Industries are nearing completion of an "AT100 power and free overhead conveyor system", which is part of a multi-million euro expansion program by a key international automotive components supplier. The success of a Power & Free conveyor system lies in it’s flexibility of operation, allowing the flow of product to be controlled with the correct sequencing taking place to suit a customers individual and specific requirements and working environment.

Multi-Million Pound Overhead Conveyor System Nearing Completion

Unlike conventional continuous running chain conveyors, where product loads are attached directly to the conveyor chain via jigs/attachments etc. a Power & Free system utilises a series of free running trolley assemblies, which may be connected together with the use of a flight bar, to carry the load. The trolley assemblies are routed in a twin channel section and driven around the system dependant upon the application by a single or multiple conveyor chains, which are mounted above the twin track/trolley track section. By utilising a trolley assembly to carry a product load, total flexibility, due to the unrestricted movement of the trolley assembly throughout the system can be achieved.

Oct092019 Inclined Belt Conveyors Order Fulfilled

We have recently undertaken a large contract for the supply of a belt conveyor system within a FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) facility. The order was placed specifically to coincide with the Christmas sales activity increase for our customer. The image shows us having undertaken the finishing touches to one of our inclined belt conveyors, helping presents flow for the fast approaching Christmas period.

Inclined Belt Conveyors Order Fulfilled

Belt conveyors are mainly used for the movement of light to medium weight goods. They can accommodate irregular shaped and semi-solid items such as packages, bags or sacks containing powder or granular material, bundles or stacks of flexible material and single items of variable shape and size. Unlike powered roller conveyors belt conveyors do not require the load to have a flat underside in order to gain traction.

Aug062019 Overhead Conveyor Chain For Export

We have recently completed a very large order for overhead conveyor spares being shipped to a European installation. Several tonnes of overhead conveyor spares where supplied for a complete overhaul of a heavy duty system. Even the most reliable of conveyor systems require worn parts to be replaced from time to time. Amber Industries offers a full range of spare parts for all the conveyor equipment it supplies, i.e. overhead chain conveyors, powered roller conveyors and belt conveyors.

Overhead Conveyor Chain For Export

The bi-planar chains within overhead chain conveyors inevitably stretch with use over time. A tiny fraction of a millimetre of wear per link, even when properly lubricated, can add up to a substantial extension of the chain overall. When this extension can no longer be taken up by the tension unit or the chain doesn’t mesh properly with the drive unit, it is time to fit a new chain. Our service engineers are practised in undertaking conveyor chain change-outs quickly so as to cause the minimum downtime of the overhead conveyor system.

July022019 Powered Roller Conveyor System Installation Completed

Products can be accumulated on lineshaft conveyors with a queue of items can be allowed to form to create an in-line buffer store without stopping the upstream movement of products on the conveyor system. This is possible because a property of the lineshaft drive mechanism design is that it only generates low levels of line pressure. This is the amount of force acting between touching products in the queue. When products are stopped on the conveyor by a mechanical stop, the friction between the product and the rollers beneath then causes the rollers to stop rotating and the corresponding O-rings to slip on their spools, without affecting any other rollers elsewhere on the conveyor.

Powered Roller Conveyor System Installation Completed

Lineshaft roller conveyors are powered by a shaft running longitudinally beneath the rollers to which are attached a series of spools. Polyurethane O-rings run from each spool around a groove in the rollers, thus as the shaft is rotated by an electric motor the rollers also rotate in turn pushing the product along the conveyor. Lineshaft roller conveyors are ideal for transporting light to medium products that are regular in shape and size, fairly rigid with an even underside eg. boxes, cartons, totes, platens etc.

Mar102018 Tecomet Choose Amber For A Vertical Lift With Integrated Transfer Unit

Tecomet is the world’s largest contract manufacturer of medical implants and devices, they specialise in manufacturing and engineering solutions in Forging, Casting and machining of medical as well as aerospace & defence products. The company has a global presence with over 16 sites across 3 continents. The Sheffield site is the largest outside the United States. 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.

Tecomet Choose Amber For A Vertical Lift With Integrated Transfer Unit

Their original process was to transfer a total of 20 individual final castings, one at a time from the existing drying line overhead conveyor, which was located on a 3m high mezzanine floor onto a second Offload overhead conveyor. The transfer between the two conveyors was completed using a standalone transfer device mounted on the mezzanine floor. Once the products had been placed onto the Offload conveyor they would then be transported through to a separate offload area some 25m away. Not only was transporting the 20 products over this distance less efficient, it also took the products from a ‘controlled environment’ to an ‘uncontrolled environment’.

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.

Amber’s solution was to replace the existing transfer unit and Offload overhead conveyor with a new vertical lift with integrated transfer unit. This solution would enable products to be transferred from the drying line conveyor, onto a waiting Lift carriage and delivered to a new product offload position, located directly under the existing Drying line conveyor.

The improvements to the process were quickly recognized by the Casting team and they committed to the installation of the new equipment. Michael Durband, Casting Manager explained their reason for selecting Amber Industries ‘they offered an ideal solution supported by a detailed and competitive quotation, and as a 24/7 operation with no real shutdown periods, they were also willing to work around our production demands during the installation’.

Amber designed the Transfer and lift at their Oldham facility together with the bespoke control system which was fully capable of interlocking with Tecomet’s existing control system. The unit was fully tested in-house before being delivered to site and installed during a small installation window, all during full production.

Michael Durband, added, ‘we are very pleased with the new lift and transfer, and the benefits of Amber’s solution see that all products now stay in a controlled environment, leading to quality benefits. We have also been able to lean our production flow in this area around the new transfer and lift system. It takes up less room and has freed up valuable production floor space’.

‘Working with Amber Industries has been a positive experience, they offered excellent service and communication throughout the project and we are now in discussions with them regarding the next phase of work.

Feb022018 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.

Curved Plastic Modular Belt Conveyor System

The main advantage of modular plastic belts is that they allow straight lengths to be combined with a number of curves of varying radii so that several changes in direction can be made all within one continuous conveyor run. This is either too expensive or simply not possible with traditional reinforced PVC or fabric type conveyor belts. Other benefits are that they are hardwearing, capable of being used in wet environments and they are easy to repair. Should they be damaged or become worn it is a simple matter to replace a number of the plastic sections and linking pins, thereby renewing only the damaged or worn section of the belt rather than the whole belt.

Sep12017 Re-link Your Existing Overhead Conveyor With New Chain

Amber Industries are experts at overhead conveyors. We are number 1 in Google for the search term which is testimony to our expertise. Even the most reliable of conveyor systems require worn parts to be replaced from time to time. Amber Industries offers a full range of spare parts for all the conveyor equipment it supplies, i.e. overhead chain conveyors, powered roller conveyors and belt conveyors.

Re-link Your Existing Overhead Conveyor

The principle of overhead chain conveyors is that they utilise a continuous powered chain running in a track. Fitted to the chain at regular intervals are single pendants from which the products to be carried are suspended either directly or by means of load-bars or purpose made carriers. Instead of pendants ‘dogs’ may be fitted to the chain in order to push trolleys along a second track normally mounted underneath the chain track. The products to be conveyed are in turn suspended from the trolleys. This type of overhead conveyor system is termed ‘Power & Free’.

The MCM Conveyors division of Amber Industries Limited has 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 curves, 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.

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 curves, 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.
