Ball Transfer Insert Assembly Selection Guide
Ball Transfer Insert Assembly
For existing conveyors, our drop-in insert plate design allows for rollers to be removed and ball assembly insert plates to be "dropped-in" and bolted. These inserts plates will work on 1.9" and 1-3/8" roller conveyors.
The omni-directional design of ball transfers allow packages and product to rotate and easily change direction. These are ideal for free movement of tools, dies, fixtures, containers, and assemblies. They are best used where smooth-surfaced items must change direction such as the intersection of two conveyors. Applications include sorting tables, cargo decks, feed tables for metal working, die and fixture handing and storage, and assembly lines.
Ball Transfer Insert Model Summary
Insert Plate Construction
Insert plates are bolted into the frame of the table and hold the ball transfer units in a specific arrangement. These plates are 6" x 1" x 12 ga. galvanized steel with ball holes punched on 1" centers. Empty insert plates can be purchased separately as well.
Our ball transfer inserts come standard with 1" diameter steel balls with a 1-3/4" diameter steel housing and a 1/4-20 center post mount. These ball transfers are arranged in the insert plates depending on the required centers of your application and bolted from below. Additional ball transfer units can also be purchased separately to add to or replace an existing system.
Our ball transfer insert assemblies are constructed with standard ball transfer units. These units can be purchased to replace damaged units or add additional units to the insert plate. Replacement insert plates without the ball transfer units can also be purchased. To take a look at this selection, click here.
Alternate stud style ball transfer units can be used in place of the standard unit that comes with the table. Material options include carbon steel, nylon, and stainless steel. All ball transfers are sealed and lubricated for a long life (except nylon ball) and the carbon steel is zinc plated.
