Ball Transfer Units

Ball transfer units, also known as ball transfer tables, are a type of rolling mechanism used in material handling and conveyor systems. They consist of multiple small steel balls held in a housing or frame. These balls can rotate freely in any direction, allowing for easy movement of objects in various directions with minimal effort.

Ball transfer units are typically mounted on a surface such as a table or conveyor, and they facilitate the smooth and precise movement of heavy loads, boxes, or other materials. They are commonly used in applications where items need to be moved in multiple directions, such as assembly lines, warehouses, loading docks, and packaging operations.

The design of ball transfer units allows for omnidirectional movement, meaning objects can be easily pushed, pulled, or rotated in any direction on the surface where the units are installed. This versatility makes them a popular choice for improving efficiency and flexibility in material handling operations.
