with tolerances tighter than semi-precision units

  • Capable of very high speeds and larger loads than semi-precision

bearings

  • Very sensitive to axle deflection which could limit capacity in long rollers
  • Excellent for quiet operations
  • Many styles available including: polypropylene housings

Bushings:

  • Solid pieces of plastic or bronze without moving parts
  • Compounds include: UHMW, Teflon, Nylon, Bronze, and more

Ball Transfer Bearings

By Ed Roberts on 2012-04-20 10:10:21 -

Ball Transfers are used where packages must be transferred

at right angles without turning the package, or where it is

desired to turn packages without lifting.

The 1" Stud Mounted Ball Unit consists of a 1" Diameter

hardened steel ball, which rotates on a bed of hardened steel

balls. These are enclosed in a steel housing which is made as

dust proof as practical. The 1" Ball Unit has a working

capacity of 50#.

The smallest package handled determines the ball transfer

module centers required. For stability of the package, there

should be a minimum of nine ball units beneath the package

at all times. The maximum capacity of the ball transfer

module will vary with respect to the size and spacing of the

ball units, however, this capacity cannot exceed 300 lbs. the

maximum capacity of the supporting member. In addition the

capacity of the conveyor frame must also be considered.
