How does a ball transfer table work?

Items placed on the ball table will glide smoothly over the surface when pushed. Heavy components, machine parts and motors can be transported or turned with ease. This makes ball tables ideal for use in repair, assembly & manufacturing industries.

A ball transfer table is a robust table in which a number of ball units are mounted. The pattern in which they are mounted can be square, or diamond.

The ball pitch is the distance between the centre of each ball and the next. For example the ball table featured above has a pitch of 150mm, so the balls are spaced 150mm apart.

The ball unit itself consists of a case within which sits a large ball which rests on a number of smaller balls.

At Spaceguard we often incorporate ball transfer options into our standard workbenches and heavy duty workbenches as you can see from the images below.
