What Is Swivel Casters

What Is Swivel Casters? Swivel caster wheel is the so-called movable caster wheel, its structure allows 360 degrees of horizontal rotation. Caster wheel is a general term, including swivel casters and rigid caster wheel. Rigid caster wheel have no rotating structure. They can not rotate horizontally but vertically. These two kinds of casters are usually used together. For example, the structure of the trolley is two rigid wheels at the front and two swivel wheels near the handrail at the back. Swivel wheel refers to the bracket mounted on the caster wheel which can rotate 360 degrees horizontally under dynamic or static loads. There are many kinds of materials for making swivel wheels. The most common materials are nylon, polyurethane, rubber, cast iron and other materials. It is widely used in mining, mechanical equipment, electronic equipment, medical equipment, engineering decoration, textile, printing and dyeing, furniture, logistics equipment, warehousing, turnaround truck, chassis, cabinet, equipment, electromechanical, dust-free workshop, production line, large supermarket and many other industries and various fields.

The Classification of Casters

The Classification of Casters   The Classification can be divided into three forms 1、The rigid casters & The swivel casters 2、By application industry 3、By material Let me show you the details 1、The rigid casters & The swivel casters The rigid casters have no rotating structure and can not rotate; theswivel casters can rotate 360 degrees 2、By application industry It can be mainly divided into medical casters, industrial casters, supermarket casters, furniture casters and so on. Medical casters are specially designed to meet the requirements of hospitals, such as light operation, flexible steering, high elasticity, special super silence, wear resistance, anti-winding and chemical corrosion resistance. Industrial casters mainly refer to a caster product used in factories or mechanical equipment. It can be made of imported advanced reinforced nylon (PA6), super polyurethane and rubber. The product as a whole has high impact resistance and strength. Supermarket casters are specially developed to meet the needs of supermarket shelves and shopping carts. Furniture casters are a kind of special casters which are mainly produced to meet the needs...

How to Select the Proper Caster and Wheel

There is no simple formula or rule that can be followed in selecting the proper casters. Many varying and individual factors must be balanced to make the selection that will do the best job for you. The following are several of the more important considerations. Load Weight. The heavier the load, the larger the wheel required for the caster. The weight of the load also influences the mobility of the wheel. Roller or ball bearings are recommended for loads over 400 pounds. Weight capacities are shown for each caster in this catalog. Floor Conditions. Make sure the wheel you select is large enough to pass over cracks in the floor, tracks, moldings and other obstructions. For floor protection on linoleum, tile, carpet, etc., use polyurethane or Performa rubber wheels. Unusual Conditions. Each wheel material has certain characteristics which will give the best results where unusual conditions exist. For example, where acids, oils, chemicals and other conditions harmful to rubber are present,polyurethane, polyolefin, Maxim,...

How to Pick Wheel Bearings? Bear These Tips in Mind.

Precision Ball Bearings Our most popular bearings are best suited for applications that require rolling ease, but where side thrust isn't a critical factor. Pre-lubricated and sealed at the factory, they reduce maintenance costs because greasing isn't needed. Double-sealed precision ball bearings feature steel-reinforced rubber seals securely fastened to a groove on the ring of both sides of the bearing. Precision bearings now replace straight roller bearings in the majority of our wheels, and can be provided optionally on our other wheel types. Depending on the wheel type and application, we'll spec the 62 series precision ball bearings with a T-bushing, or a new precision flange-type ball bearing. These new one-piece bearings designed by Hamilton engineers work well for larger wheels. Shielded Stainless Steel Ball Bearings These bearings prevent rust and improve rollability in our stainless steel and solid urethane wheels. Can be custom spec'd in various sizes and configurations – including flanged, sealed square bores, extended inner raceways, and wide inner raceways with...

Stainless steel casters features

Stainless steel casters bracket features: It is made of 304 stainless steel plate and stainless steel double bead plate structure. It has strong rust and corrosion resistance (suitable for humid environment) and 100% washable. The polished bracket surface maintains long-term brightness. Suitable for food processing and catering and medical industries The bracket strength is enhanced after use stainless steel, the bracket is not easy to be deformed, the driving is more stable, and compare with common material the load capacity is obviously improved. Stainless steel material enhances the gloss of the product and makes the product more beautiful. Due to higher cost of material raw material,and relatively small amount demand on market , resulting in fewer factories produce stainless casters, that’s cause stainless steel price price much higher than regular casters We are now focusing on the production of various stainless steel casters, we can provide high quality stainless steel casters at a lower average market price According to the wheel material is divided into: stainless steel nylon...
