One of the reasons there are over two million caster configurations in our catalogue is our ability to innovate by modifying existing designs to meet special requests. With our fully integrated manufacturing facility as well as our knowledgeable and creative design/engineering team, we are able to make small changes that often achieve big results. In this new e-series we look at many of our success stories in creating caster configurations to meet customers’ needs.
3,500lb capacity, <6” high
and turns on a dime
That was the result when we were asked to create a heavy-duty caster that meets an overall height restriction and is ergonomically friendly. This creative caster configuration combines our kingpin-free Typhoon™ head with two 4” x 2” NyRock™ wheels. The caster creation features an overall height under 6” and a capacity of 3,500lbs.
Beyond the castersmithing that stands behind the design and engineering of this caster, the best part is that it is 100% produced onshore in our fully integrated manufacturing facility just outside Toronto.
The Typhoon head is robotically welded directly to the plate making it just about indestructible. That ruggedness and durability makes it ideal for high-impact, heavy-duty or high temperature applications
Our NyRock wheels are made from high impact compression moulded polymer and are CNC machined in our plant. They come with precision bearings, have a temperature range of -40ºF to 250ºF, and a durometer of 78-82D. NyRock wheels provide a smooth, easy and quiet ride, can be used indoors or outdoors, are non-marking, and offer outstanding floor protection.
Two wheels make this innovative caster easier turn and provide added stability, both of which are an absolute must when moving heavy loads. While this configuration was designed for an automotive application, the same caster can be used for industrial and aerospace environments.
