Some typical applications for Ball Transfer Units include air cargo, materials handling, assembly lines and machine tables - Learn More. Ball Transfer Units are constructed with one main load ball, sat upon a hemi-spherical cup of smaller ball bearings. The design enables even very heavy objects to be moved with ease, due to the low level of friction - More Info

Alwayse Engineering is the original manufacturer of Ball Transfer Units and produces the world's widest range. As such, most requirements can be met with one of our existing units. However if your specifications fall outside the standard range, our bespoke service can provide a solution. Alwayse has decades of experience in the Research & Development of Ball Transfer Units. So when required, a new ball unit can be designed and manufactured in-house to non-standard criteria. 

To match your specific requirements, special ball units can be made in a range of non-standard materials, or with modified profiles. Bespoke unit body materials can be specified, and non-standard load ball materials are also available. Bespoke ball unit designs can be accommodated to match specific dimensions and load capacities.
