Customer: Automotive Manufacturer

Solution: A shock absorbing caster with a T/R compound wheel to quiet the process as well as a caster equipped with a sprocket to allow the caster to be steered. The customer was having difficulty controlling the steering of the carts as well as the noise created by the carts. Caster Concepts was able to reduce the noise by using a shock absorbing caster as well as the T/R compound wheel. To correct the steering issue Caster Concepts welded sprockets to the yoke base to allow the casters to be steered and provide truer tracking of the dollies.
