Omnitrack Ball Transfer Units & Movement Solutions
Omnitrack is a family owned & run UK manufacturer of Ball Transfer Units & Movement Solutions with over 100 years of company innovation history. First patented in 1954, our High Capacity 'Endless Track' Ball Transfer Units have been in continuous production ever since and continue to solve the industry's toughest applications. We have never believed in Minimum Order Charges, can offer Free Technical Advice and 'Specials' are no problem for our in-house manufacturing facilities. Our products are:
High Capacity Ball Transfer Units - Our innovative 'double recirculation' interior mechanism gives our High Capacity Ball Transfer Units the higest load bearing capabilities of all ball units and smoothest movement. Many different sizes, fixing options, material upgrades and service kits offered to suit an increasingly wide range of applications - from the intricate, accurate & highly sensitive control of components in the Hadron Collider to the shock-loading, severe heat and extreme loads imposed by the steel industry and offshore applications.
Medium Duty Ball Transfer Units - Omnitrack 'Metric' Ball Transfer Units are machined from solid steel bar & hardened for heavy load capacity & wear resistance. The reinforced machined top cap protects against impact from misalignment of the conveyed item.
Light Duty Ball Transfer Units - Designed for 'ball up' applications, these pressed steel units are lubricated for life & most types have alternative material options to suit diverse operating environments. The LP 'Plastic' Ball Transfer Units range provides a non-magnetic, lightweight & completely corrosion resistant solution for light duty applications.
Washdown Ball Transfer Units and Movement Solutions - Omnitrack High Capacity Ball Transfer Units now feature an extra drain hole in the base of units on our -Z 'Arduous Conditions' and -SS 'All Stainless Steel' material upgrades to allow rapid dispersal of fluid and contamination from the interior mechanism. MX 'Extreme' & MW 'Washdown' Ball Transfer Units were specially designed for the Air Cargo Handling industry and will suit most 'Ball up' applications that have 'washdown' requirements. Light duty washdown applications can either utilise the LD32SS or LD32/3SS all Stainless Steel Ball Transfer Units which both feature 7 large drain holes in the base of the unit, or utilise a unit from our new Movement Solutions range; Omniball, Omniwheel and Omnifloat.
Spring Loaded Ball Transfer Units - Recommended for applications where uneven track or shock loading is highly likely. Omnitrack High Capacity Spring Loaded Ball Transfer Unit ranges are ideal for heavy duty 'Ball down' applications as well as precisely manoeuvring tools & dies on press & machine beds. Extended service life & user serviceable with factory spares backup, plus material upgrades to withstand the most severe operating conditions.
Omniball Ball Castor Unit - The Omniball Ball Castor unit has a far reduced 'trail' than conventional castors and provides a near instantaneous change of direction for both 'ball up' & 'ball down' applications. The large plastic main ball is ideal for conveying or gliding over delicate surfaces such as wood, carpet or even glass whilst minimising damage to flooring or to the conveyed item.
Omniwheel Conveyor Module - Easily integrated into existing conveyor systems, the Omniwheel offers a near instantaneous directional change for gravity and driven assembly lines, machine feed & packing areas. The 3 peripheral polyamide rollers rotating on stainless steel axles provide 360° support when modules are coupled together, giving greater support for irregular or deformable items, and resist wet, dirty and dusty operating environments.
Omnifloat Ball Castor Unit - Omnifloat Ball Castor units have been specifically designed for the sheet material handling industry and allow smooth & safe conveying of delicate materials, such as glass, in wet, corrosive, dusty and even high temperature applications. Typically supplied in a 50% mix of 'left hand' & 'right hand' bias, these castors provide a neutral conveying plane and can be user serviced or have material upgrades to suit specific application requirements.
Omnitables & Ball Mats - All of our Omnitables, ball mats and turntables are tailored to your specific requirements. Our Technical Support team will help you devise your bespoke solution by choosing the most appropriate media.
Specials - We can manufacture bespoke in-house 'specials' that are tailored to your specific application, whether that be dimension changes or particular material options not covered by our current upgrades. Please contact our Technical Support Team via the instant messaging Live Chat feature on our website, by email or give them a call to talk through your requirements.
Service Kits - New service kits are now available for most Omnitrack High Capacity Ball Transfer Units & Omnifloat Ball Castor Units. Contact our Technical Support Team for advice on how to service your units.
