Case Study: Dual Swivel Section Caster Improves Facility Efficiency
We Build Trust
A manufacturer of overhead track systems was having issues with the carts that move steel blanks around their facility. If the swivel casters were not parallel to the rigid casters when the cart needed to be pushed, it would take two operators just to get the cart moving.
Something needed to change. Operators were complaining about the force needed to move the carts. The company was even considering a pricey motor-powered solution to alleviate their operators’ frustrations.
Upon a Google Search, the manufacturer found Caster Concepts, who understood the issue completely and challenged them to use a set of four SoS Series 112 Dual Swivel Section Casters with 10” TWERGO Heavy Duty Wheels with ErgoTread polyurethane. The company was skeptical and continued to assume that a motor-powered solution was the only answer.
The business owners were pleased to find that this solution not only got the carts rolling with only one operator. This solved their first problem – ease their employees’ frustration as the carts now only needed one person to get them moving. These wheels also solved their second problem – this cost-effective solution would end up saving them thousands of dollars over a motor-powered solution.
Are your employees straining and struggling with heavy equipment on wheels? Is it slowing your facility down?
