Conveyance systems- On the Safe Side
With the conveyance systems at Amboss+Langbein, hopper loaders are filled according to the “First in, First out” principle. Amboss+Langbein guarantees a transport capacity of c. 200 metres. The material throughput can reach up to 1.5 tonnes per hour. A dual bus cable design results in high operational reliability for the Amboss+Langbein hopper loaders. Our central system allows up to four vacuum circuits to be managed automatically, with capacity for up to
120 separators to connected to the system. An emergency motor design ensures trouble-free operation even in case
of vacuum generator failure.
The idling and material intake times of the hopper can be freely adjusted. The material can be selected for coded intake, making “improper” material intake due to incorrect coupling to the material station no longer possible. A visual and audible alarm ensures safety. The systems are equipped for self-optimizing material refill.

Control of Conveyance systems
4 systems that work together with a station and are parameterised via a terminal, HMI.
- Each PLC can manage a max. of 32 separators
- Each PLC has its own vacuum generator and central filter.
- The material station manages a max. of 90 materials.
- The connection of the PLCs to each other is realised using ProfiNet.
- Where necessary, also include a switch in the plans for the observation of the
individual systems via the Web server.
Each PLC works independently with its own vacuum generator and its own central filter. The fill levels are checked.
If it is detected that a separator requires refilling, the material requirements state of all separators belonging to this PLC
will be frozen. The separators will then be filled in succession. The "freezing" of the material requirements ensures
that the separators are filled according to the FiFo principle. Furthermore, this allows for large fluctuations in material consumption to be well compensated for. Once all separators have been filled once, the separators will once again be monitored to detect if material refills are needed.
If a vacuum generator fails, two lines can share a vacuum generator when operating with at least 2 PLCs. This does not mean that filling will take place smoothly just like when operating with both vacuum generators. However, it allows for operation of the "important" machines.
Purpose of using Hopper loader
The integrated Hopper loader is a primary auxiliary machine for the rapid transfer of plastic materials by vacuum from a storage area to a hopper or drying bin.
The integrated Centralized hopper loader is also used for long-distance transfers of plastic materials. The ability of fetching varies with the form and enormous density of plastic resins, piping, duration and height of fetching, and other variables.
By way of an automatic switch, the Hopper loader offers significant savings to plastic processors on both working hours and materials. These hopper loaders are designed to feed all types plastic processing machines with an efficient, man-free operation.
How does Hopper Loader work for you?
The simplest version of a resin conveying system is hopper loaders, but they are not an integral part of a central conveying system. Self-contained Hopper loaders are used to move to a single destination (usually a blender, drying hopper or machine throat) pellets, regrind and powders from a single source (usually a Gaylord). In the material source tub, a pickup lance is inserted, and a length of flexible hose attaches the lance to the loader. On top of the destination stage, the loader is placed, and a small, powerful motor produces a Hopper that sucks the material into the loader's body through the pickup lance and flexible hose.
Each unit is provided with a simple control with programmable load and dumps times to time the loading and dumping of the loader.
Self-contained loaders automatically accomplish the loading process, removing the need for an individual to climb a ladder with a resin bucket to fill a hopper or bin. This saves labour, reduces spillage of materials and improves safety.
There are loaders designed explicitly for pellets and regrind, while others are designed explicitly for powders. Hopper mount and machine mount variants and Compressed Air Loaders are available.
Conventional Hopper loaders and newer designs have characteristics such as slanted lids for easy access, transparent centre parts of glass so that operation can be seen, and flat bottoms that do not protrude down into the container on which they are placed.
The scale of the loaders varies from 1/8 to 1 cu.ft. Based on nature. Based on your particular application, your equipment supplier will help you select the right design and size.
There are definite disadvantages to having a plant full of loaders, and by replacing loaders with a central conveying device, any processor can significantly increase plant performance and minimise energy and labour costs. Payback of investment in months-Not years
