Vertical Mounted Spring Casters
Vertical spring loaded casters offer a high flexibility in design to meet the specified application. Each caster features springs that are retained in a fixed position on a threaded rod for pre-load capabilities. The purpose of pre-loading a caster is to allow the caster to carry a load before it begins a spring deflection. Once the spring begins to deflect, the user should find a consistent spring reaction related to the load applied. Spring Loaded casters can also be found under theShock Absorbing Caster section. These spring loaded caster wheels are built for the most rugged applications. Their box construction (formed or fabricated) can withstand abusive applications without changing the cycle life of the product.
High Pre-Load Capacities
High Strength Springs
4,000 lbs Max. Capacity
Spring loaded casters are ideal for jet engine dollies, aircraft jacks, in-plant trailers, trash gondolas, lift truck stabilizer casters, revolving signs, parade floats and many other industrial applications. These casters can be designed to carry loads in excess of 20,000 lbs.
Vertical mounted spring casters are manufactured in standard sizes from 6 inches to 12 inches in height and accommodate wheels from 2 inches to 4 inches wide. These standard casters will carry loads from 500 lbs to 4,000 lbs. If you have a unique application, feel free to use the custom configurator to develop a caster that meets your needs.
Series Vertical MountedShock absorbing casters with vertical mounted springs are ideal for applications where the carrier is used for a dedicated purpose, carrying the same load consistently. Vertical Mounted Spring (VMS) shock absorbing casters are set for a pre-determined weight capacity. The benefit of this design is that there will be no deflection of the springs when loaded with the rated load capacity. VMS casters also minimize vibration and noise when the cart is empty. VMS casters feature sp
Vertical Spring Swivel
Series 84Build 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.
