WDS is launching a new and extended range of ball transfer units which are suitable for use in many conveying applications. The range features different mounting options as well as a choice of materials and load carrying capacities. The products all feature in the latest WDS catalogue and can be found online at www.wdsltd.co.uk, where free 3D CAD files are available to download.
Ball transfer units can be used for loading or feeding machines, moving goods or materials, as an alternative to a roller or in a form of linear operation. The extended range of ball transfer units introduced by WDS is available in zinc-plated steel or stainless steel combinations. A number of mounting options are available, catering to most standard designs. These are available as either surface-mounting ball transfer units, recess-mount ball transfer units or spring-loaded ball transfer units.
WDS’ comprehensive range makes them suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications in a number of industries, including manufacturing, food processing and warehousing. Ball diameters vary between 12.7mm and 50.8mm, with maximum load capacities reaching nearly a tonne.
The complete WDS catalogue features over 15,000 standard parts for machine build and workholding products and is accessible online, where customers can place orders and download fully annotated 3D files of standard parts – including the full range of ball transfer units to suit most currently supported 3D CAD packages. All products are available with no minimum order quantity and without a small order surcharge, meaning that customers have complete flexibility when placing an order.
