Case Study: Tire Manufacturer Improves Material Cart Handling
We Build Trust
A tire manufacturer was using industrial carts in its facility, but the casters on the carts were experiencing issues as they were picking up debris from the facility floor which make the carts harder to move, damaged the casters themselves, and marked up the facility floor in the process.
The manufacturer found Caster Concepts when searching for a solution to this three-sided problem.
The engineering team at Caster Concepts had a solution: use a T/R compound on the wheel to repel the debris on the floor. With the use of the T/R compound wheel the debris picked up by the wheel was significantly decreased making the cart easier to push and keeping the wheel in round. The investment of purchasing better casters for the industrial carts increased facility efficiency and stopped the break-and-replace cycle of the inferior casters.
