An aerospace company needed casters to put on a ground support assembly used to transport an aerospace simulator. Moving the aerospace simulator is a complex and challenging task, as it was a large, heavy, and delicate piece of equipment. Not to mention this precious cargo took more than a year to complete. To transport this
With the large-scale shift from internal combustion engines (ICEs) to electric powertrains, the production of electric vehicles has taken off — along with the need for EV batteries which can weigh up to 350 pounds each. For a major electric vehicle manufacturer, this created many challenges. In the race to get production levels at their
The new UltraGlide™’s ball bearings have been upgraded in both size and quality to provide more than double the bearing life. Hamilton engineers also designed the die cast aluminum center with a new concave face that concentrates the compression of the urethane toward the centerline of the tread. It’s a key innovation that simulates the
This beast of a triple caster we designed for an engineering design firm. Each 21-inch wheel is impressive in its own right. But when banded thrice together to support four corners of an 80,000-pound movable assembly, it’s a threesome worthy of Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra combined. The assembled structure itself (see illustration to the right)
