A well-rounded affair. Everyone has seen a ball roller before. If not at the slide-in unit in front of a machine or a press, then possibly when dropping off packages at the local post office or at the airport. That ball units are used in all sorts of places doesn't come as a surprise. They are a great solution for pushing, rotating and rerouting heavy loads quickly. The ball rollers are used to steer packages, suitcases or work pieces in the right direction at track switches and intersections. They are often combined with conveyor belts, roller conveyors or turned into ball unit tables, and help ensure that specially made conveyor technology systems function flawlessly. When selecting ball rollers, the likely distance between individual rollers needs to be calculated to ensure the transported goods do not get stuck between them. To calculate this, the small edge length of the transported good is divided by 2.5. And to find out what the load bearing capacity of a ball roller is, you should always start with the three load bearing ball rollers. This is why we recommend dividing the weight of your heaviest transported good by 3, and add a little to the result to be on the safe side.
This is where the ball is used for transport: transported goods can be quickly rerouted or rotated using ball units. Optimise your work processes and equip your conveyor technology system with ball units.
