Case Study – Precious Cargo: Dual Wheel Shock Absorbing Casters Helps Carry 65,000 lb. Jet Engines

A manufacturer of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) needed casters that could support 65,000 lb. jet engines, in addition to the 4,000 lb. weight of the vehicle. These engines are valued at several million dollars each, so a secure and safe cargo is priority 1.

Caster Concepts provided Dual Wheel Shock Absorbing Casters with fully independent suspension and a maximum weight capacity of 25,000 lbs. The design of these heavy-duty casters keeps all of the vehicle’s wheels on the ground and the cart level, even if the ground isn’t. They also reduce the impact of shock while alleviating excessive stress being put on just one wheel.

Extra Heavy-Duty Shock Absorbing Caster — Ideal for applications where cushioning is needed. Load rating of up to 25,000 lbs.

Super Heavy-Duty Kingpin Caster — Load rating of 35,000 pounds
