Wheel Types


  • TWERGO®

    TWERGO® is Caster Concepts’ patented, ergonomic caster wheel featuring a multiple wheel- in-one design. It is designed to reduce initial and continuous push force, as well as the force exerted to turn. TWERGO® Twin- and Triple-wheel designs have independently spinning wheels that can rotate in either direction and at any rate, minimizing friction when turning and maneuvering.

    MAX CAPACITY: 4,200 lbs.

 


  • TWERGO® Lite

    A compliment to our TWERGO® ergonomic wheel, TWERGO® Lite utilizes the same patented face design, but in a single wheel version. TWERGO® Lite is optimal for lighter loads that do not require a lot of turning and maneuvering.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 2,050 lbs.

 


  • Round Balloon Tread

    The Full Radius or Crown Tread wheel, often called a “Donut” wheel, we offer this wheel with various Tread Polyurethane formulations to help conquer the specific challenges of the application, including our ErgoTread formulation which returns energy and helps reduce force exerted to keep rolling.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 1,500 lbs.

 

  • whl_typ_1

    Forged Steel

    Fine grain forged steel wheels are precision machined to offer the greatest load capacity, impact strength and rollability. Precision tapered bearings compliment the characteristics of these wheels.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 20,000 lbs.

     

  • whl_typ_2

    Cast Iron

    Precision machined cast iron wheels feature premium Class 30 gray iron with a heavy duty cross sections. These wheels are excellent for high heat applications.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 15,000 lbs.

 

 

  • whl_typ_3

    Ductile Iron

    Ductile iron wheels feature many of the same characteristics of cast iron; however, the ductile iron wheel has higher tensile and yield strengths. Resists breaking or chipping.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 15,000 lbs.

  •  
  •  
  • whl_typ_4

    Polyurethane

    Polyurethane wheels feature a higher capacity material than rubber, provide longer wear, and will not damage your floors like cast iron or steel. A wide variety of liquid cast polyurethane wheels are offered.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 11,250 lbs.

  •  
  • whl_typ_5

    Mold On Rubber

    Rubber offers a cost effective alternative to polyurethane while providing a cushioned and quiet ride for the product being transported. Neoprene and high load compounds are also available.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 3,000 lbs.

  •

  • whl_typ_6

    NyTec-MD

    NyTec wheels provide a tough material which can handle up to 80% the weight of steel or cast iron.NyTec has excellent load carrying capacities and resists corrosion. NyTec provides a long wearing material and is especially suitable when maintenance is an issue.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 9,360 lbs.

  •  
  •  
  • whl_typ_7

    Phenolic Resin

    Phenolic resin wheels offer a load carrying capacity approaching that of cast iron or steel wheels. These wheels are a cost effective alternative with increased rollability and will not damage floors.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 8,000 lbs.

  •  
  •  
  • whl_typ_8

    V-Groove

    “V” grooves are machined from either cast iron or hot forged steel wheels. V-grooves work on track or off track and are essential where precise alignment or indexing of equipment is necessary.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 15,000 lbs.

  •  
  •  
  • whl_typ_9

    Flanged

    Single and dual-flanged wheels operate on a rail for locating fixtures in a precise position for indexing through a work cycle. Premium cast iron and steel is used for the wheel material to provide high strength and long wear.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 12,000 lbs.

  •  
  •  

  • Pneumatic

    Pneumatic wheels offer the highest cushioning, shock absorbing caster/wheel, without moving to a more expensive spring loaded caster. Capacities of pneumatics are limited due to the soft cushioning characteristics of the wheel.

  • MAX CAPACITY: 3,300 lbs.

  • whl_typ_11

    Drive/Keyway

    Drive/Keyway wheels are offered from 3” to 18” diameter. Bore sizes from 1/2” to 2-7/16”. Drive surfaces of poly, rubber, or steel. Excellent for power transmission applications

  • MAX CAPACITY: 1,600 lbs.
