Easy Glider™ Ball Transfers and Ball Casters
FRANTZ brings its experience and reputation for engineering top quality Conveyor Bearings to Ball Transfers and Ball Casters with the introduction of EZ Glider. Manufactured in Sterling, IL,EZ Glider Ball Transfers and Ball Casters offer both stud and flange mount styles with a variety of optional features and load ratings which dare you to compare.

The FRANTZ Flange Mount Ball Transfer, Model 1100, includes US Patent No.: 6,814,212 B1.  This FRANTZ invention allows for a plate to be utilized, often metal, which includes holes adapted to fit over the major ball in the ball transfer.  This plate, coupled with the FRANTZ Flange Mount Ball Transfers provide many benefits including: helps to stabilize articles that are non-uniform in shape, non-rigid, or a shape that may have corners or edges that can "catch", allowing the article to pass smoothly over the array of ball transfers.  The configuration of utilizing a plate has the potential to reduce labor and cost in the assembly of the ball transfer table itself, for example, in the design of many ball transfer scales the need to fasten the ball transfers to the baseplate is often eliminated.  Another benefit, maintenance costs in keeping a ball transfer table operational are reduced by decreasing the amount of debris which tends to accumulate between ball transfers. 

FRANTZ® EZ Glider Ball Transfers are simply better than the competition.

This is our EZ Glider Ball Transfer value to you:
  • “Best in Class” Load Ratings
    At 150lbs EZ Glider carbon steel and stainless steel models carry up to 230% of the load capacity of competitor product. With ball cups up to 35% harder than the competition, Sterling® Steel Ball nesting balls with ABMA spec case depth, and a tightly swaged assembly design, EZ Gliders easily outperform competitive offerings in load carrying capability. The result is that you need up to half as many EZ Glider Ball Transfers and Ball Casters for your application giving you significant cost savings. Note that consideration must be given to the number of ball transfers that product surface rides on for smooth conveyance as well as the load capacity itself. Nevertheless, substantial savings are available due to our superior EZ Glider load rating value.

  • “Best in Class” Ball Options
    For sensitive “No-Mar” product surfaces, FRANTZ offers three non-metal primary ball options; Acetyl (Acetal), Nylon, and Polypropylene. Marry them with either Stainless Steel or Carbon Steel components. EZ Glider Ball Transfer options available only at FRANTZ.

    • Acetyl Ball (Acetal Ball)
      Delrin® acetyl (acetal) homopolymer resin has high tensile strength, stiffness, resilience, fatigue endurance, a low coefficient of friction, and moderate toughness. It provides predictable mechanical, chemical and electric properties over a broad temperature range for long periods. Good lubricity and resistance to wear make this a good choice for demanding Ball Transfer and Ball Caster applications. It has low moisture absorption and is resistant to a wide variety of solvents, including alcohols, aliphatics, aromatics, aldehydes, ketones, ethers, oils, greases and gasoline. Load rating with the Acetyl (Acetal) primary ball is greater than most competitor carbon steel product.

    • Nylon Ball
      Nylon 6/6 offers high strength (especially at elevated temperatures), toughness at low temperatures, stiffness, wear and abrasion resistance, low coefficient of friction and good chemical resistance. Use for high impact application requiring strength and rigidity. UV light results in degradation over time. Resists hydrocarbons, aromatics, aliphatic solvents, automotive oils and fuels, and refrigerants. Attacked by strong acids, bases and phenol. Gradually attacked by hot water. Load rating with the Nylon primary ball is equal to most competitor carbon steel product.

    • Polypropylene Ball
      Polypropylene offers a good balance of thermal and chemical properties with moderate strength. It has one of the lowest densities of all plastics and has a good strength to weight ratio. It offers excellent chemical resistance with very low permeability to water, vapor, and gases. It meets the requirement of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as specified in CFR 177.1520 and is Drug Master File listed. It can be used in direct contact with foods. Liquids such as gasoline, Xylene, and chlorinated solvents will swell and soften this material. Polypropylene is an economical “No-Mar” choice.

  • 100% Stainless Steel
    EZ Glider Stainless Steel Ball Transfers are not just partly or mostly stainless. All components are Stainless Steel down to the mounting bolt. Compare. Click for further information on Stainless Steel Ball Transfers.

  • “Best in Class” Mounting Bolt Options
    EZ Glider Stud Mount Ball Transfers have three bolt size options: ¼”, 5/16”, and 3/8”. Communicate to your customers the value of your ball transfer tables by the strength of the mounting bolts. Available only at FRANTZ Manufacturing. Compare.
