Omnitrack designed and patented the original high capacity ball transfer units in 1954 and have been in continuous production ever since.
Maximum precision and the highest load bearing capabilities and lowest friction of all ball units, they provide the smoothest performance at any angle of orientation and high resistance to shock and temperature thanks to the innovative ‘double recirculation’ interior mechanism.
Most high capacity units are user serviceable for extended life with material upgrades available to solve specific application requirements.
Medium duty ball transfer units have been designed to withstand impact damage through the misalignment of a conveyed item and also incorporate a resistance to shock loads applied to the main ball.
Light duty ball transfer units are ideal for applications requiring a ‘ball up’ orientation. The LP ‘all plastic’ series of ball units provides a non magnetic and corrosion resistant alternative to the rest of the pressed steel range.
Both ranges have different material options available to solve specific requirements for your application.
Omnitrack spring loaded ball transfer units are recommended where uneven track conditions or shock loads are a concern. Omnitrack T & B Bars are bespoke solutions tailored to your specific machine or press bed for the effortless conveying of tools and dies.
Omnitrack washdown options are available where excessive contamination is likely. Choose from –Z and -SS material upgrades in the high capacity range, MX ‘Extreme’ or MW ‘washdown’ ball units in the medium duty range or the LD32SS and LD32/3SS ball units in the light duty range.
The Omnicaster Ball Castor is a new castor with a far reduced ‘trail’ for near instantaneous change of direction. The large plastic ball minimises damage to the contact surface making this unit ideal for conveying or running on delicate surfaces such as carpet, wood or even glass.
The Omnifloat Ball Castor has been specially designed for the easy handling of delicate sheet materials, such as glass. Typically supplied in a 50 percent mix of ‘left hand’ and ‘right hand’ bias to provide a neutral conveying plane, these units have alternative material options available for user servicing or upgrades.
Ideal for conveying irregular or deformable items, the Omnitrack Omniwheel can be easily integrated into existing gravity or driven conveyor systems. Coupled together in pairs, the Omniwheel provides 360° of contact with the conveyed item, offering greater support and resistance to dirty, wet or dusty conditions.
