Lean Manufacturing with Ball Transfer Units

Ball Transfer Units are ideal for creating assembly lines and workstations that are flexible according to workload. In the below example in use by Atlas Copco, the assembly area consists of 6 workstations linked together by ball transfer platforms and rollers. The design enables the assembly line to flow vertically or horizontally between each workstation according to production requirements. The direction of the assembly line can be altered without needing to re-arrange the equipment.
