As reported by The Manufacturer in their article titled “Caster Concepts expands TWERGO® ergonomic caster line,” the industrial landscape is witnessing a remarkable advancement in workplace safety and efficiency. The expansion of the TWERGO® ergonomic caster line, designed to reduce strain injuries, is making a significant impact.
TWERGO® introduces a unique dumbbell design that significantly reduces caster wheel friction, resulting in a remarkable up to 50% reduction in the force required to push or pull materials and completed manufacturing assemblies when compared to traditional industrial caster designs.
Ergonomic casters have emerged as a critical element in ensuring worker well-being in industrial manufacturing environments. What sets TWERGO® apart is its feature of independently rotating wheels, which drastically decreases the push force needed to maneuver heavy-duty carts and dollies. Moreover, the integration of polyurethane wheels enhances both safety and caster longevity, ultimately reducing the total cost of ownership for manufacturers.
Doug Backinger, Vice President of Sales at Caster Concepts, underlines the significance of worker safety in today’s manufacturing climate. He states, “In today’s manufacturing environment, with staffing shortages at an all-time high and fewer people on production lines, the risk of OSHA recordable injuries is greater than ever. Worker safety is a priority in our product design, and, as a result, our industrial casters move more with lower push forces required.”
