As announced in the article “Hamilton introduces New Heavy Duty Casters & Wheels Built for 10-mph Speeds” by Hamilton Caster, the industrial landscape is about to experience a boost in efficiency and speed. Hamilton Caster introduces four groundbreaking caster series and five wheel series tailored for secure transportation of heavy loads at speeds of up to 10 mph. Designed to cater to heavy industrial applications with load requirements ranging from 1500 lbs. to 17,500 lbs., the new Spinfinity® XC Casters and TerraTech™ Wheels are engineered to revolutionize the way heavy loads are moved.
Jim Lippert, Hamilton’s VP of Sales, underscores the significance of these innovations, stating, “Using these new casters and wheels designed specifically for 10-mph speeds, those days of pushing industrial casters beyond their typical 3-mph rating are over.” The development process was meticulous, with forged steel mounting plates and inner raceways that were precision CNC-machined to create superior raceways for high-speed conditions. In addition, the casters are fortified with larger axles and double stacked precision ball bearings to handle the increased speeds. The new “V-Seal” for the swivel raceway ensures that downtime is minimized, as the casters are now 100% maintenance-free. These caster series are available in both single-wheel and dual-wheel configurations.
These wheels come in three different polyurethane compounds and two rubber compounds, making them versatile for various industrial settings. The ultra-thick press-on-tire-type wheels have robust 1045 steel cores. With wheel diameters ranging from 9” to 36” and load capacities spanning 1500 lbs. to 34,000 lbs., these wheels cover a wide spectrum of requirements. Additionally, non-stock sizes are also on offer.
