Cost effective and light-weight units formed from sheet steel material. No reduction in load carrying capacity even when installed upside down.
Push fit units. These actetal units resist salt water and chemicals. They are non-conductive and non-magnetic.
Cost effective and light-weight units formed from sheet steel material. No reduction in load carrying capacity even when installed upside down. Low friction 1:0,03
Top cover plates are shaped to ensure the perfect conveyance of items which have possible burred or bent edges. This design also prevents possible damage to the carrying ball.

To determine the load of a ball transfer unit, the weight of the article to be conveyed should be divided by 3. If the height tolerance of the load balls is good and the surface of the workpiece to be conveyed is suitable, the calculation can be based on the number of ball transfer units under the load.
How the ball transfer units should be arranged depends on the bottom surface of the load to be transported. For loads with a uniform, even bottom surface, e.g. packing cases, the distance between the ball transfer units is calculated by dividing the smallest dimension by 3,5.
