Shock Absorbing Casters

Shock Absorbing Casters Overview

Shock Absorbing Casters are Spring Loaded and designed to absorb shocks and minimize the impact to the cart, resulting in smoother movement, reduced risk of damage and less noise.  Shock absorbing casters are ideal for applications where surfaces are not even or flooring has damage or debris. They are also great for applications where the load may be fragile or highly reactive to vibration, such as small parts or glass.

However, to achieve these benefits the shock absorbing casters must have the right springs to achieve optimal spring deflection. There is a science to determining proper deflection, the wrong shock absorbing caster can actually do more harm than good. If the spring constant is too high, it could essentially be the same as not having a spring at all. If the spring constant is too low, it could extend the impact of the shock, and continue to vibrate excessively.  Rest assured, our engineers are experts in the science of determining the right spring and caster combination for each individual application.  

We offer a large variety of Spring Loaded Shock Absorbing Casters including,

  • Single and Dual Wheel Shock Absorbing Casters (see products below)
  • Vertical Mounted Spring Loaded Casters for Pre-Load Applications
  • CasterShoX® Casters for Unparalleled Noise Reduction
  • Modern Suspension Systems Casters available in Aluminum or Steel, offering Independent Suspension on Dual Wheel Models

  • Dual Wheel Shock Absorbing Kingpin Swivel

    Dual Wheel Shock Absorbing Kingpin Swivel

    Build Swivel Section: The yoke and top plate of this caster are manufactured by a drop forged process from C-1045 steel. 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 components are then heat treated to 40 + 2 Rc. A 1.25 inch precision tapered thrust bearing is pressed over the king pin and engages the yoke. Hardened ball bearings complete the load bearing raceway.
