Aviation & Aerospace Industry Casters
Aerospace is a diverse and demanding industry. Platforms used in aircraft and spacecraft assembly must be able to handle hundreds of thousands of pounds while being able to maneuver safely and efficiently. While outside, ground support is transporting heavy loads indoors and outdoors in all kinds of environmental conditions.
In these types of situations and environments, Caster Concepts is in our element. We offer a complete line of aerospace industry casters that are up to par for the grueling demands of aerospace applications, including a complete line of aluminum casters that are lightweight and corrosion-resistant, yet durable.
In addition to our standard caster wheel products, we can also design a caster to meet your exact needs. We have designed and built several custom casters specifically for aerospace aviation companies, military contractors, and private manufacturers.
Along with a high level of competence comes efficiency. Quick turnaround is also a key benefit of Caster Concepts. For example, To help an aerospace launch company complete a rocket build that was being delayed while waiting for casters from another manufacturer, Caster Concepts delivered the casters the aerospace had been waiting for within a week. This helped get the rocket completed ahead of schedule and saved the aerospace company more than $2 million. Just another example of how we go, above, and beyond standard!

Pneumatic Wheel Swivel Caster
Pneumatic wheels are ideal for applications where there is rough or wet outdoor terrain. Pneumatic
wheels perform through the elements and ensure that your equipment stands up to the daily challenges
that the aerospace industry faces.
- Rubber Wheel
- Great for Wet Environments
- 7,500lbs Max Load Capacity
Heavy Duty Dual Wheel with Brake
Industrial Heavy Duty Casters are often used to move TONS, whether it’s a 4,000lb load, 200,000lb load,
or even greater, you can rely on Caster Concepts to provide the exact caster for the application. A brake
can reduce the amount of injuries that happen on the shop floor.
- Dual Wheel Polyurethane on Iron
- Foot brake to lock wheels
- 50,000lbs Max Load Capacity
Extra Heavy Duty Low Profile
Extra Heavy Duty Caster is designed and built to carry the heaviest loads while delivering the longest
cyclelife and flawless performance. The low profile ensures a small overall height and helps increase
the load capacity.
- Extra Heavy Duty
- Low Profile Design
- 30,000lbs Max Load Capacity
Ground support equipment is utilized to service aircraft before, after, and between flights. Caster Concepts
supplies casters and wheels for ground support equipment around the world, providing industry-leading
motion solutions from the ground up.
- Maintenance Free
- Pneumatic and Semi-Pneumatic
- Ergonomic, reduces force exerted to turn
Pneumatic dual wheel casters are ideal for aircraft engine stands and maintenance stands.
Superior performance in tough conditions on rough terrain make Pneumatic Wheels a great choice.
These casters provide longer wheel life, less maintenance and high shock absorbency.
- Pneumatic Dual Wheel
- Ideal for outdoor use and wet environments
- 7,200lbs Max Load Capacity
- Could be used for Aircraft Recovery Dolly’s
The Drive Caster™ is designed to move tons easily and efficiently, while offering the flexibility to
integrate into a variety of applications, above and beyond industrial carts and racks. This motor driven
caster, is powered by a 1/4hp or 1/2hp electric motor, that can move up to 5,000lbs total weight per caster.
- The industry’s first motor powered industrial caster
- Can easily be integrated into most carts, racks and carriers
- Great for heavy load applications
Conversion Drive Caster
The Conversion Drive Caster converts your existing material handling carts into Motor Powered Carts,
quickly and easily. Simply remove one swivel caster and bolt in the Conversion Drive Caster and away
you go. Can be used in almost any setting where a manually pushed cart was previously used to move
loads up to 5,000lbs.
- Convert existing carts into powered carts
- Fully integrated solution
- Virtually eliminate risk of overexertion injuries
- Reduce operators needed to move heavy loads.
