Ambaflex spiral conveyors provide a continuous throughput from ground floor up to 20m whilst also featuring the smallest footprint available. The shallow incline and high grip slats make the CSL spiral perfect for elevator/lowerator solutions of totes, cases, cartons and bags etc. and are also reversible as standard for 2-way operation.
CSL offer a comprehensive range of powered roller conveyors and motorised roller conveyors manufactured from either aluminium, mild or stainless steel. The modular design allows for cost effective integration of various conveyor modules to create highly efficient and adaptable handling systems. Motorised roller conveyor otherwise known as zero line pressure/ZLP can be used for queuing of products where non-contact must be maintained.
The CSL range of pallet conveyor modules are used to create customised pallet handling solutions for moving anything from single empty pallets up to 2 ton loads in simple transit or accumulation modes and can also be utilised for feeds to and from palletisers, wrappers, hooders, strappers, etc. The standard range can also be adapted to handle base boards, cages, stillages and IBC’s
Designing an automated sortation system normally involves merging and diverting products through the system to pre-determined destinations where various conveyor modules can be incorporated, including chain/belt transfers, switch sorters, pneumatic pushers, active roller belting etc.
Various parameters of product identification prior to diverting can be employed such as:
- Barcode reading
- RFID tags
- Product sizes
The CSL range includes platform and continuous elevators which have small footprints and can infeed and outfeed on multiple floor levels. Also a range of pallet elevators complement the extensive range.
Belt conveyors come in various forms with different belting finishes, including smooth, grip face, modular plastic etc. They are commonly used in warehouses for elevating products above head height on an incline/decline both to keep an area clear for access under or between floors. They are also widely used where the product is small/delicate and cannot travel on rollers.
Picking from ergonomically designed carton live storage racking, offers a solution for fast and efficient order picking of a wide range of fast moving products.
By integrating a roller conveyor across the front of the pick face, completed orders can then be conveyed through various picking zones and onward to packing and despatch.
Fixed, mobile and vehicle loading/ unloading conveyors are perfect for the rapid handling of loose load items which can vary from parcels, cartons, tote boxes, bags and even odd shaped items such as curtain poles etc. The range comprises of telescopic boom conveyors, dockless trailer loaders and flexible powered/gravity conveyors.
