Shock Loads: Specify High Capacity series & spring loaded units
Track Hardness / Conveyed Item Material: Standard material ball units have Rockwell 'C' hardness of 60 minimum
Delicate Surfaces: Ball Units - Acetal (POM) & Phenolic Resin
Operating Environment: Wet, dirty, outdoor, radioactive
The maximum conveying speed allowed amounts to 2m/s. The load capacities specified apply to any mounting position and are based on 106 rotations of the load ball. With the units being used over a longer time at speeds exceeding 1 m/s, an increase in temperature as well as a reduction in travel life must be expected depending on the load.
To determine the load of a ball transfer unit, the weight of the article to be conveyed should be divided by 3. If the height tolerance of the load balls is good and the surface of the workpiece to be conveyed is suitable, the calculation can be based on the number of ball transfer units under the load.
How the ball transfer units should be arranged depends on the bottom surface of the load to be transported. For loads with a uniform, even bottom surface, e.g. packing cases, the distance between the ball transfer units is calculated by dividing the smallest dimension by 3,5.
