Load & stability
Specify spring loaded units where shock loads & uneven track conditions exist.
Ensure sufficient load capacity:
Compensate for temperature & operating environment by reducing stated load capacity.
Evaluate these aspects when choosing your solution:
Which position does your application require the units to be mounted or function? Load ball up, down or other? Heavy duty range units operate at maximum load in all orientations.
Track & Contact
What is the condition, hardness & surface finish of the material the units will be conveying or bearing against? Uneven, deformable & delicate surfaces need special consideration.
Load & Shock
Dynamic & static load ratings are identical. Where loads are unevenly distributed or high impact/shock conditions exist, spring loaded units are ideal.
Maximum conveying speeds are limited; frequency & duration may also require consideration. Dynamic & static speed ratings are identical.
Track & Contact
Lowest coefficient of friction & highest levels of precision movement are provided by the heavy duty ball units (pages 4 – 9). Some applications will allow a design concession to be made.
Load & Shock
Consider the stability of the conveyed item. Ensure sufficient points of contact (pitch) to consistently support the mass. Provision for control & braking of the mass should not be overlooked.
Consider material upgrade options to better resist adverse environmental operating conditions. Dirty or dusty conditions? Wet & contaminated areas? Chemical attack / contamination? Magnetic permeability & radioactive fields?
Lubrication & Service
Omnitrack products are lubricated for life. To further extend service life, heavy duty ball transfers & Omnifloat ranges offer additional user-service kits. Consult page 7 for heavy duty ball units & page 20 for Omnifloat glass handling casters.
Ambient temperature & maximum/minimum temperature ranges must be evaluated. Stainless steel components resist higher & lower temperatures better than standard materials (page 29).
