SpiralConnect Solution Cuts Costs and Issues

SpiralConnect Solution Cuts Costs and Issues

A leading Italian integrator specialised in the water and soft drinks market recently installed a clever solution. By utilising AmbaFlex’s flexible solutions for their belts, they reduced the total cost of ownership (TCO) as well as their initial investment.

Thanks to this solution, a well-known Polish bottler of spring water to the retail market has now taken advantage of the cost saving benefits of the simple solution itself. By cutting out the belt transfers and drives, the solution eliminates the bottle necks traditionally associated with conventional solutions. The result is higher uptime, better space utilisation and simplified maintenance, all of which reduce the total cost of ownership significantly. Apart from these future savings, installation, wiring and control costs can also be taken out of the initial investment.

The system can elevate up to 80 bottle packs per minute over 2.4 meters. The packs are 33 and 50cl PET in packs ranging from 4 to 9 bottles. The system is the combination of two clever AmbaFlex solutions. The first clever element is the dual lane SpiralVeyor® that AmbaFlex invented some 10 years ago and consisting of two 400mm wide belts, with separately controlled spiral belts for elevation.

AmbaFlexLogoThe secondly clever element in the solution is a “SpiralConnect”. This feature extends the lower end of this SpiralVeyor® up to the exact connection with the upstream conveyors. There was also no need for the integrator to design any special curved conveyors behind their packers. The integrated solution, with one ongoing belt for both connecting and spiral elevation, is available uniquely from AmbaFlex and comes in every configuration imaginable.

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