Our industrial casters are heavy-duty and designed to carry loads of up to thirty thousand pounds. These robust, industrial-grade castors may have either a swivel or rigid design and usually include four bolt holes on the top plate for connecting it securely with any load. Industrial casters wheels typically come in flat designs which work great for supporting large pieces of equipment like dolly carts, assembly turntables, storage racks that can hold over fifty tons of weight capacity; they also provide mobility assistance when needed such as tow lines and maintenance equipment where maneuverability is key!
Note: To ensure smooth operations in an industrial environment where heavy loads must be moved frequently over long distances without being tracked by unwanted elements (e.g., dust & dirt), various precautions should be taken into consideration when choosing between different types of bearings/rollers.
While furniture has been around since ancient times, the first caster design was patented in 1876 by David A. Fisher is one of many inventions that have made moving large items more accessible and convenient through advances over centuries.
Rigid Casters: > The caster is the most basic type of caster. As it does not rotate, this means that all objects will be pushed in a straight line as opposed to being moved around like with many other types of casters. This makes them great for wheeling items along on things such as shopping carts and dollies where you would want your item traveling forward an equal distance each time instead of rotating or moving side-to-side at different speeds depending upon how much weight was shifted onto one particular leg from another due to uneven terrain or some sort of load imbalance between both sides which could cause tipping over.
Swivel Casters: > This wheel is the most common type used for a shopping cart and allows it to rotate 360°. They can be found on both front and back wheels, but are not always present.
Industrial Casters: > Heavy-duty casters have a wide variety of uses depending on the design. Some will allow for movement in any direction, while others are only able to move forward or backward due to their rigid construction. These heavy-duty pieces can be found wheeling dollies throughout warehouses and manufacturing facilities all over the world, which is why they're often referred to as "dolly carts."
Braking and Locking Casters: > Casters are often used to transport heavy objects. However, if the caster does not have a brake feature installed on it, then pushing or pulling an object into position may require two people and this can be time-consuming. Fortunately, there is “a low-cost way” that will allow you to lift your load by yourself; installing a braking system in the caster with just one hand!
Rushing through work becomes much more manageable when using casters without brakes because they take up so much of our precious energy for positioning them correctly - which takes twice as long than normal due to their lack of control over movement like other types do. Installing these features would ensure we save time while also keeping ourselves safe from any accidents posed by working.
