85 Series – Extra Heavy Duty Casters
Swivel Section: The yoke and top plate of the 85 Series caster is manufactured by a drop forged process from C-1045 steel. The kingpin is an integral forged component of the top plate. The raceway is machined into the top plate, the kingpin is threaded and the yoke base raceway is also machined to a 5 inch diameter. The raceway is not heat treated and a precision tapered load bearing (3.875 inch ID x 5.00 inch OD) is located in the raceway (between the top plate and the yoke base) A 1.25 inch precision tapered thrust bearing is pressed over the kingpin and engages the yoke to complete the assembly.
Kingpin: 1.25 inch integral forged kingpin, precision machined threads with slotted adjusted nut and pinned to correct tightness.
Legs: 3/8 inch x 4 inch laser cut legs. Formed on a CNC press brake and continuously welded inside and outside for added strength.
Axle: 1 inch, Grade 5 axle with fine threads
Lubrication: Pre-lubricated before shipping
Wheels: 6 inch to 12 inch diameter wheels with widths from 2.5 inch to 4.0 inch. Bearing can be roller bearing , tapered bearing or precision ball bearing
Height: 8.5 inch -15.50 inch
Swivel Lead: 2.50 inch
Finish: Gold dichromate plating. Wet paint and powder coat paint is optional.
The Series 85- Extra Heavy Duty Casters are unique in that the tapered load bearing and thrust bearing enhance the precision of the caster. The combination of precision load and thrust bearings creates a swivel section with the highest load carrying capacity for its class. The series 85 delivers an exceptionally tight tolerance fit. Additionally, the integrally forged kingpin and adjusting nut add strength and longevity to the life of the swivel section.
Applications include high capacity die tables, die carts, towed trailers, aerospace industry, steel mills, gantries, automated guided vehicles and aircraft maintenance applications.
