The 60 Series hot forged heavy duty casters are heavier and stronger than cold forged casters of similar dimensions. The hot forged, machined raceway with an integral threaded kingpin provides a rugged swivel section for abusive application in the heavy duty range. The legs are laser cut from high quality sheet steel and formed on a CNC press brake to provide added strength when side loading or shock loading becomes a priority. The legs are then welded to the yoke base, both inside and outside, utilizing pulse welding technology to assure great penetration while providing added stability. The long wearing characteristics of the 60 Series caster allow it to outperform cold forged or stamped casters in continuous swivel scenarios.
Excellent for parts bins, towline carts, dough troughs, automated vehicles, production racks and fixtures, pan trucks, conveyor systems, and other heavy duty applications.
