xiros® ball transfer units: move heavy and sensitive loads easily

Whether in material handling equipment, the food industry and the glass industry or even in the sports area, sensitive or heavy goods can be transported with the help of ball transfer units without any great application of force. Absorbing loads with a load rating of up to 1,000N is no problem, which means that even heavy goods can be moved in nearly all directions. The conveyor ball inside the housing is mounted with many small balls in order to ensure perfect running values. From purely plastic solutions to ball transfer units with stainless steel conveyor balls:
optimise work processes with our lubrication-free, maintenance-free and cost-effective ball transfer units for the most diverse applications.

Advantages of plastic ball transfer units

Transporting heavy loads from A to B: ball transfer unit tables make it possible to transport food, airport goods or glass. Ball transfer units in conveyor tables enable the smooth and easy transport of sensitive goods in different directions. Compared to metal solutions with massive steel housings or types made of aluminium with balls made of steel, ball transfer units from igus are completely lubrication-free and maintenance-free. This not only saves you money but also a lot of time and effort. In addition, the plastic ball transfer units can be used in any installation position - horizontal, vertical and overhead. A new design of the housing interior enables a five times higher load capacity of the ball transfer units compared to earlier versions.
xirodur, which is the material used, is particularly abrasion-resistant, durable and electrically insulating due to its technical properties. In the case of a magnetic surrounding of an application, customers can design the ball transfer units so that glass balls in the housing interior ensure a completely metal-free solution. Moving heavy loads with sharp edges and fragile sensitive goods on roller conveyors or roller ball tables: xiros ball transfer units are ideal for the safe transport of your loads.
