Automotive Industry Casters
Automotive manufacturing is an extremely competitive industry, one that is constantly looking to increase productivity and gain greater efficiency, while maintaining high standards for quality and safety. We know this all to well, because automotive manufacturing is the first market we served when we started Caster Concepts. Today, the automotive industry is our primary market, it is the driving force behind many of the innovative products that we create. Whether its ergonomics, noise, heavy loads or automated guided vehicles (AGV), we have the right automotive industry casters for the job. Our range of top-quality automotive casters includes jack casters, tire casters, suspension casters, drive casters & more, which are perfect for specific requirements in the automotive industry.

We offer a wide selection of Medium and Heavy Duty Commercial Casters for the Auto Industry:
Round Tread Wheels
The rounded wheel reduces the footprint of polyurethane that comes in contact with the floor,
resulting in less friction than traditional, flat tread caster wheels. The reduction in friction helps
to reduce push force when starting rolling and when turning. The rounded tread design also helps to
push away some debris, rather than trapping it in the wheel.
- Small Part Carts
- General Assembly
- Line Delivery
CasterShoX® casters have the ability to reduce workplace noise to levels that are safer for all
employees. CasterShoX® work great for transporting fragile components or products where repeated
shocks may damage the components. CasterShoX® also provides an added value for ergonomic situations.
- Windshield / Window Transport Carts
- Small Part Carts
- Parent / Child Carts
TWERGO® unique tread thickness minimizes friction and eliminates scrubbing and sliding when turning,
while providing the impact resistance of normal wheels. TWERGO® can reduce initial and continuous
push force by an average of 25%, with some users even reporting as much as a 50% reduction in push force.
- Ergonomic wheels with up to 5,000lb capacity
- Stamped Parts Carts
- Axle and Gear Carts
- Trash Gondolas
- Bumper and Parts Racks
TWERGO® Lite is also a wise replacement to a standard 2″ wide caster. TWERGO® Lite has a
durable cast iron core while adding the benefits of reduced initial and continuous push force, at
a competitive price. TWERGO® Lite is a great replacement to the conventional cast-iron wheel
- TWERGO® Lite is the Ultimate 2″ Wide Caster
- General Assembly
- Line Delivery
SoS (Swivel on Swivel) Rigs
The cutting edge design of the Swivel on Swivel (SoS) Caster achieves significant reductions in
push force. This is quite possibly the most ergonomic caster on the market. The Swivel on Swivel
caster is maintenance free, thanks to a kingpinless design and sealed precision ball bearings.
- Dual Kingpinless Swivel Sections Stacked together
- Sealed Precision Ball Bearings with hardened Raceways and Neoprene Seals
- Auto Guided Vehicles (AGV’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 1/2 hp 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.
