Starting with the correct caster series is a key first step to assuring a caster that will not only safely carry the designated load while providing value over a significant lifetime.

Caster Wheels

Once you have located a series swivel section that will fit your application, the next step is to decide on the wheel that will provide the service level needed. As you look at wheels that may fit your application the first consideration is the wheel must carry the load that the plate caster is designed to carry. Next, the wheel must be able to function in the environment that will be prevalent in the application and lastly, the bearing in the wheel must also carry the designed load and function efficiently in the working environment. Factors that must be considered when selecting a wheel:

  • Is the application a manual or power-driven application?
  • What is the speed of the application?
  • What are the floor conditions or track conditions/do you want to protect the floor or track?
  • What are the temperature ranges within the application?
  • Is there any presence of any chemicals or solvents?
  • Are ergonomics a consideration in the application?

Caster Bearings

When considering bearing you will want to consider:

  • Is the application a manual or powered application?
  • Is “shock loading” apt to be present in the application?
  • Are ergonomics a consideration in the application?

Caster Options

Next, you will want to consider options that may be needed in the application of the caster. Options may be for the purpose of operational efficiency or they may be in consideration of safety issues. Given a thoughtful approach to available options will be a key to getting a caster that will fit all your needs. Surface finish is also a consideration. The most common standard finish is a type of plating, either clear zinc or gold dichromate. Caster Concepts also offers a wet paint finish or a powder-coated finish for an outstanding appearance. Protect your investment with the correct finish.
