What is a Ball Transfer Unit?

Ball transfer units are also known as ball transfer tables or ball transfer conveyors. They are material handling equipment designed for the omni-directional movement of products or packaging.  Each transfer unit consists of a rigid steel plate mounted with individual ball transfers.  Each individual ball transfer involves a single large bearing supported by many smaller bearings in a single housing.

How does it operate?

Each individual ball transfer operates similar to a computer trackball mouse (only inverted). This allows for the fluid movement of product in any direction across the surface of the unit.  When a flat-bottomed load is pushed over the top of a ball transfer unit, the ball transfers allow it to smoothly be rotated or moved in any direction—reducing the effort needed to move the load.  Individual ball transfers can be added, removed or replaced as needed—extending the life and utility of the unit itself.

What are they used for?

Ball transfer units can be used for any application that requires quick and easy movement of products.  Commonly, heavy duty ball transfer bearings are used in assembly/production lines or in shipping/receiving lines.  They can be installed in any place where products need to be rotated, positioned or moved.  They can also be used in large systems where two or more conveyors converge or on adjacent conveyors where materials need transferred from one to the other.
