Ball Decks provide a multi-directional transfer medium to allow staff to manually manoeuver, redirect and reorientate ULDs. Small deck areas may be installed as junctions between conveyors and other equipment, while in more extensive installations large Ball Decks act as prime mover, used to manually transfer and manipulate ULDs between an array of interfacing equipment.
McGrath Industries' Ball Decks are modular in design to facilitate simplified installation and easy re-configuration or extension when necessary. Ball Decks may be installed with an operational height of 200mm (8" - Workstation height) or 508mm (20" - Dolly height). Accessory components including Side Guides and Retainers, Impact Barriers, Weigh Bridges, Trash Skirts and Bridging Rollers complete the deck installation.
B&T BTU CS6030
McGrath Industries use and recommend premium quality B&T Bearings' Ball Transfer Units (BTUs).
Slave Dollies provide an economical ULD transfer mechanism where typical warehouse fork-lifts are available. Note that because the fork-lift operator's view past the ULD is very restricted when driving forward, the fork-lift is usually driven backward over long distances. For busier facilities McGrath Industries' Cobra Slave Dolly Transporter provides a system of unprecedented flexibility, speed and efficiency.
