Here is the detail show for conveyor components ball transfer unit
Ball transfer units are omni-directional load-bearing spherical balls mounted inside a restraining fixture. They are identical in principle to a ball computer mouse upside-down, or a trackball, except there is an array of them side-by-side.
Typically the design involves a single large ball supported by smaller ball bearings.They are commonly used in an inverted ball up position where objects are quickly moved across an array of units, known as a ball transfer table, a type of conveyor system. This permits manual transfer to and from machines and between different sections of another conveyor system.
They are used in airports for luggage delivery, or in industry as part of manufacturing systems. Prior to the invention of the ball transfer unit, first patented by Autoset Production Ltd in 1958, these applications were solved by the use of inverted casters.However, casters recognize a trail, meaning that the wheels had to align before directional change could be achieved.Ball transfer units can also be used non-inverted ball down position as a type of caster, however this use is restricted by load-bearing limitations and the type of floor.
Skate wheel series products are all small in size and light in weight, they are suitable to transport flat-bottom items, usually used in the curve part of logistic convey systerm or its separate and combined part. Skate wheels also can be used as barrier and guide, and also can used for goods shelf.
Our products are widely used for the horizontal and height adjustment of conveyor and other machine equipment.Made of different materials(Stainless steel,Carton steel,Engineering Plastic) could apply for various environment,it's widespread and absolutalutely necessary.
