Create Material Handling Surfaces

Sept. 1, 2008
Miniature ball transfer units are designed to enable smooth and effortless movement of small parts or components from one point to another.

Serving as a multi-directional material-handling system, they create a ready-made surface over which components can easily glide for transfer or positioning. Units incorporate a large load-bearing ball that sits upon many small balls encapsulated in a hemispherical cup. Units are lightweight, compact and ready-to-install using studs. The units feature steel, stainless steel or aluminum housings, combined either with steel balls and a flat top, stainless steel balls and a flat top, or stainless steel balls and an angled top. Available ball sizes range from 4.8mm to 15mm; units weigh from 0.003kg to 10kg; and load ratings range from 22 lbs. to 264 lbs.
