Forged Steel Wheels
Forged Steel Caster Overview
Forged steel casters are used in heavy duty industrial applications where strength and capacity are paramount. Steel caster wheels are hot forged from high carbon steel billets heated to 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit. They are then repeatedly hit by high tonnage forging hammers. This process enhances the grain structure and increases the tensile strength (64,000 psi) of the wheel. The wheels are then precision machined ﬂat with rounded edges to ﬁnished tolerances. Forged steel wheels offer the greatest load capacity, impact strength and rollability of all caster wheels.
- High Carbon Steel
- Temperature Resistance to 800°F
- 20,000 lbs Max. Capacity
These wheels are suitable for high capacity and rigorous applications.
