Airports and the air freight services that utilize them rely on ground support equipment to keep their operations continually moving. And what keeps this equipment going are casters that must stand up to constant use and abuse, including unyielding surfaces and unfavorable weather conditions. Because when ground support equipment becomes unreliable or unsafe, the effect on freight operations is immediate.
Caster Concepts is a high flyer when it comes to providing the ground support industry with casters of all sizes, capacities, and configurations. We have designed and built several custom casters specifically for aerospace aviation companies, including the largest airplane manufacturer in the world, as well as military contractors, private jet and helicopter manufacturers.
A big reason for our success is that we have the engineering expertise to understand exactly what your need is and provide you with the best solution —whether it is a standard wheel or a custom configuration. If it deals with keeping ground support equipment moving, we’ve got it covered:
Our Air Cargo Casters are perfect for use on sorting desks and other applications where moving cargo and luggage on and off planes and platforms is a necessity.
We manufacture Shock Absorbing Casters that are spring loaded and designed to absorb shocks and minimize the impact. This results in smoother movement, reduced risk of damage to carts and less noise. Ideal for Aircraft Ground Maintenance Systems, Engine Dollies, and Aircraft Jacks.
Pneumatic and Semi-Pneumatic Wheels from Caster Concepts are a great choice for outdoor use and wet environments associated with Aircraft Ground Maintenance Systems. These wheels are also ideal for rough and uneven surfaces including gravel, cracked cement, thresholds, and other surface environments.
Our Modern Suspension Aluminum Casters are ideal for outdoor applications, as aluminum weighs less and is noncorrosive to withstand the elements. We also have an extremely rugged and durable steel line that offers even a greater max capacity per caster. Perfect for Aircraft Maintenance Stands, Aircraft Engine Stands, and Aircraft Wheel Dollies.
Casters for Aircraft Maintenance Stands like the one Caster Concepts designed for the U.S Air Force reduce push force and are designed to withstand environmental challenges.
Casters for Jet Engine Transport Dollies were engineered to support the additional weight of newer engine designs, provide easier maneuvering and accommodate carts currently in operation.
As a reliable and respected supplier of casters and wheels for ground support equipment around the world, Caster Concepts provides safe, efficient and durable motion solutions from the ground up.
