AmbaFlex Specialty Conveyors is supplier of the SpiralVeyor® and AmbaVeyor and a promotion agency for AccuVeyor®. AccuVeyor's are sold exclusively via AccuVeyor Systems bv and AccuVeyor bv.


AmbaFlex SpiralVeyor®The SpiralVeyor® family of Spiral Conveyors offers a complete range of elevators for all types of products and applications.

The AmbaFlex Spiral conveyor is a compact and high throughput solution for up or down elevation. It is known for its simplicity. No controls are needed. The Spiral conveyor provides a continuous product flow and it is simple and reliable as a normal straight conveyor. The compact spiral-shaped track is the key to its unique compact construction that saves valuable floor space.

The application range is wide, from the handling of individual parcels or totes to handling of packed items such as shrink-wrapped bottle packs or cartons or the handling of single mass flow items such as bottles and cans. The SpiralVeyor® is applied in filling and packing lines, airports, post automation and warehousing.


AmbaFlex AccuVeyor®The AccuVeyor® family of Dynamic Accumulators provides the efficiency-enhancing functionality of fully dynamic first-in-first-out buffering. These in-line buffers can extend their accumulation capacity as dictated by the speed difference between in and out flowing items.

The efficiency gain of the AccuVeyor® is achieved by uncoupling the speed differences and micro stops between the up and down stream machinery, such as between a filling and labeling line, between packing and palletizing and between a sorting system and shipment. The elimination of stops enhances the line availability up to 15% thereby speeding up production and improving the costs of amortization.

The AccuVeyor® is compact, simple and economically priced. A complete range of Accumulators is available for all kind of applications. Designed for aseptic filling lines, individual bottles and jars, packaged unstable items such as bottle packs and tote accumulation.


AmbaFlex AmbaVeyorThe unique AmbaVeyor represents an economical and low cost solution for conveying products from A to B with a minimum of transfers.

The AmbaVeyor is a modular conveyor that can be installed either on a turnkey basis or in modules for on-site assembly. The conveyor integrates curves, inclines and straight segments between its drive and tail unit. Configurations with one continuous belt can achieve a length of over 50 metres using a single drive. The belt comes in a width range of 200-600 mm.
