Healthcare and Pharmaceutical - Ball Transfer Units

Ball Transfer Units (Ball Rollers) are the ideal solution for a range of medical applications. For example, due to the reduced metal content required in imaging machinery, ball units with nylon body and load balls are ideal as rollers for the patient platform. Alwayse mini units can also be used in scanner rotation mechanisms, allowing 3600 movement.
