Minimal effort is required to change an items position and/or orientation on a roller conveyor.
Why not use standard conveyor ball transfer tables? Ball transfers are useful solutions for many applications, but conveyor line ball transfer tables can cause items to swerve and change direction. This means someone is required to guide items while on the ball transfer table.
However when the Omtec PBT Ball Transfer Strips are retracted below the conveyor rollers, they do not require an operator to be present for items not being repositioned or orientated. Items moving on the roller conveyor, do so uninterrupted by the ball transfers.
Application of Omtec PBT Ball Transfers is limited only by your imagination!
