Press Release (ePRNews.com) - HEBEI, China - Sep 18, 2019 - Heavy-duty casters are used in a wide range of industrial applications. They can be used in industrial carts, heavy equipment, and lightweight mobile platforms. Compared to other caster products, heavy-duty damping casters have unique characteristics. As a professional industrial caster manufacturer and cast iron wheels manufacturer, China HENGSHUI YUTONG METALWORK CO., LTD wishes to make sure that everyone knows about the characteristics of heavy-duty casters, as well as how to choose them.
Heavy-duty casters, as the name implies, are casters with a relatively high carrying capacity. They are classified as comparatively light, medium-sized casters. However, there is no fixed reference for heavy-duty casters in the industry. Generally, the load-bearing capacity starts at 500 kg. Casters of 15 tons, including those with a higher load-bearing capacity, can be called heavy-duty casters.
Heavy-duty caster material
Heavy-duty casters are typically used for the movement of heavy-duty equipment, so heavy-duty casters typically employ a hard treadwheel. Polyurethane wheels, PVC wheels, rubber wheels, nylon wheels, cast iron wheels, forged steel wheels, phenolic resin wheels, and nylon/glass fiber wheels are ideal. Among these, polyurethane caster wheels are especially suitable for extra heavy-duty casters.
The brackets of heavy-duty casters are usually made of metal, including ordinary steel plate stamping, cast steel forming, die-forged steel forming, etc., usually in a flat-plate assembly. The thickness of heavy caster steel plates is generally 5mm, 8mm, 10mm, 16mm, 20mm, or more.
Rotating plate design of heavy-duty universal wheel
Heavy-duty casters usually use a double-layer steel ball track, stamping, and heat treatment. For the rotating plate of a special heavy-duty universal wheel, the plane ball shaft or the flat needle bearing with larger force is generally used to effectively increase the heavy-duty caster’s load capacity. For the special impact-resistant heavy-duty universal wheel, the rotating plate has die-forged steel and is finished and formed. This effectively avoids the welding of the connecting plate bolts and improves the casters’ impact resistance with greater strength.
Common specifications for heavy-duty casters
The larger the diameter of the wheel, the more flexible the principle of rotation. Heavy-duty casters are commonly available in the following sizes: 4-inch, 5-inch, 6-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch, and 12-inch. Extra-heavy casters can be 16-inch or 18-inch. For example, 10-ton, heavy-duty casters produced by YTCASTER are double wheel casters with a diameter of 345mm and a wheel width of 140mm. Of course, the specifications can also be customized.
For many heavy-duty casters, a best-seller is cast-iron casters, which are wear-resistant and load-resistant. They also have a long service life. They are ideal for logistics transport and industrial transport casters. A significant advantage is that they can be used in extreme environments. However, because cast-iron casters have high road hardness requirements, they are not suitable for use in environments that require ground protection. Cast-iron casters can be widely used on concrete and other road surfaces.
How to choose a professional heavy duty caster manufacturer
At present, there are many caster manufacturers in the world. When choosing among them, users should not focus only on low prices, as a low price might indicate a poor quality product. To choose a professional heavy duty caster manufacturer and caster wheel supplier, users can refer to the following points:
1. Regular heavy duty caster wheel manufacturers can generally provide all necessary technical parameters, such as drawings.
2. Formal heavy-duty caster manufacturers must have professional testing equipment, including equipment for a caster walking test, load test, etc. Otherwise, the manufacturer cannot determine the load requirements of the casters.
3. Choose well-known manufacturers, so their wholesale caster will have a guarantee. YTCASTER is a professional, industrial caster manufacturer, but also a professional cast iron wheel manufacturer, with strong production technology and advanced production equipment, and continues to integrate with the international market, committed to becoming the international mainstream industrial caster brand.
