ProMat 2017 Product Launch

ProMat 2017 Product Launch

New Products Launched at ProMat 2017

At this year’s ProMat Caster Concepts introduced three new product lines; the foot activated swivel lock, the foot activated brake, and the 77 Series rig. The ErgoMaxX approved product lines were unveiled in front of a record number of attendees and received overwhelmingly positive responses. The products place an emphasis on improved ergonomic safety and productivity as opposed to the lowest price approach used by many producers. 

With positive projections for manufacturing it appears that customers are gearing up for increased production and looking to improve processes in order to keep up with demand.

Ergo Brake – Foot Actuated

 

Ergo Brake - Foot Actuated

Foot Actuated Ergonomic brake on a 57 series caster

Our Foot actuated Wheel Brake is designed to eliminate the bending, stretching, twisting and reaching which most brakes require in order to engage and disengage. Those motions are a common cause of injury to operators. The brakes also reduce the risk of an unmanned cart rolling off , and potentially crashing into a person or object.

 

• Easily accessible lever that engages or disengages with a single motion
• Stop the caster wheels from rolling when engaged
• Increase stopping power by adding additional  brakes to casters on the cart

 

 

 

Foot Actuated Swivel Lock

Ergonomic Swivel Lock

Foot Actuated  Swivel Lock

Convert a swivel caster into a fixed position rigid caster with a simple foot swipe. Our new Foot Actuated Swivel Lock eliminates the need for the operator to bend, reach, twist and stretch in order to engage or disengage. A simple swipe of the foot engages the lock and fixes the position of the caster at either 0, 90, 180 or 270 degrees.

• Easily accessible lever that engages or disengages with a single motion
• Lever is in a fixed location, never rotates under the cart, ensuring easy access
• Locking wheels gives operator greater control and precision when steering
