Ball transfer conveyors offer a versatile and efficient solution for transporting goods with ease and precision. Comprising a series of rotating metal balls mounted within a sturdy frame, these conveyors facilitate seamless movement in any direction, allowing items to glide effortlessly across the conveyor surface. The ingenious design of ball transfer conveyors minimizes the need for manual effort, making them particularly valuable in scenarios where items need to be repositioned, redirected, or rotated during material handling processes.
Applications of ball transfer conveyors include conveying loads of totes, boxes, cartons, flat stock, side loading/unloading, and accumulation of loads.
Ball transfer tables are ideal for warehouses, manufacturing, order fulfillment, aerospace, government, automotive, parcel handling, appliance, and food and beverage industries.

Ball transfer conveyor are omni-directional spherical balls mounted into a fixture that keeps each ball in place and equally spaced away from the other balls. Their main use is for transferring products from a conveyor line to a workstation, inspection station, packaging station, or other device that requires the product to be manually handled. They are also used when two conveyor lines converge or diverge and require manual transfer of products, or in airports to transport luggage.
Only products with a flat smooth bottom can be transported on a ball transfer conveyor table, making it ideal for boxes, totes, bins, and more. They are available in a variety of styles including bolt-together, straight, and welded, as well as curves and pneumatic. Ball transfer tables can also be placed on adjustable H-stands to adjust the height.
