AmbaFlex, the global leader in spiral conveyor solutions, has just supplied 12 narrow belt SpiralVeyors from its SVs series for installation at the facilities of a leading global snack manufacturer in Mexico.

The units will elevate tall standing packages of savoury crackers from just behind the primary packer. The AmbaFlex units have been chosen by this multinational because their compact build and high uptime. The SVs series is the smallest narrow width spiral conveyor in the extensive SpiralVeyor® family. It comes with narrow width belt of 100mm (4”) or 140mm (5.5”).

AmbaFlexFebruary2016It is unique because the smallest diameter is just under one meter (3ft). And, as standard with AmbaFlex, it can carry high loads at high speeds and can easily cross multiple floor levels in one go. It has been designed as an elevator, portal or accumulator for primary packing lines. Its applications can range from drinks, food packing and cosmetics up to assembly lines.

AmbaFlex has been supplying very compact units since the late 1990s and hundreds are already in use worldwide. However, this order is quite significant because the units are equipped with some new features that broaden the scope of the applications.

First of all, the product transfer is now driven, allowing even the smallest packages to be transferred onwards and head to head. This reduces the length of the line as its makes parallel transfers superfluous. It also improves the product handling and takes away any final risk regarding product-marking. Another special feature is the endless stainless steel 50mm plate guides that are now standard on these units. Last but not least, a hygienically designed support construction is part of the configuration to comply with the especially high cleanliness standards of this customer.

This configuration is standardized and sold under the name SpiralVeyor® PackLift; ‘enabling 3-dimensional primary pack flow’.

One more proof of AmbaFlex’s leading position in Spiral Conveyor solutions.
