Ball transfer units are very useful parts for product handling and transfer operations in many types of machines.These load-bearing parts are manufactured in different types according to each job and place of use.We will now examine a few of these assembly and product types together.
First of all, let’s consider the title of ball transfer units according to the assembly types.Commonly used mounting directions are as follows.
1-Thread Fixing Units
It is assembled by inserting into the threaded hole which opened on the machine body or by tightening with nut.It is not a preferred type because of the difficulty of positioning.
2-Flange Fixing Units
It is the most preferred model. Holes on the flange make it easy to mount to the desired location.
In some cases, you may need to make your own mounting plate.Sample mounting part can be seen below.
This type is easy to install. If it is not desired to work on the connection surface, tube fixing method simplifies assembly.
It is not the preferred type in machine manufacturing.It is not the preferred type in machine manufacturing. The thickness of the metal plate on the connection surface is very important for this type of mounting.
