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. This is where automotive casters come in.
When carts are required to carry heavier loads without increasing push force to move them, our casters reduce friction and eliminate scrubbing for improved efficiency and safety. We also help protect loads with casters that absorb shock and vibration.
And with decades of experience in caster design, we’ve saved companies time and money by designing and manufacturing parts at our headquarters in Albion, Michigan.
An Easy Push For Ergonomics And Safety
Whether you’re looking to carry heavier loads without increasing the force to move them or need to optimize push force and load size to meet OSHA standards, our casters reduce friction and eliminate scrubbing for improved efficiency and safety.
Our tapered treads and patented wheel designs that rotate independently are designed to make it easier to move heavy loads while meeting push force safety standards. Swivel-on-swivel designs offer longer leads for easier rolling and reducing side-to-side shifting. In addition, higher-profile wheels can increase carrying capacity without changing wheel size.
Our Engineers are experts at choosing the polyurethane and caster design that is best suited for you heavy duty material handling needs

Tempering Noise, Vibration, and Harshness Issues
For NVH issues, we offer products that combine the very best attributes of spring technology and polymer dampening technology that quietly reduce shock loads by 80% and noise sources by 15 decibels.
Spring Loaded casters absorb shock and minimize the impact on the cart, resulting in smoother movement, reduced risk of damage, and less noise. Spring-loaded casters are ideal for applications where surfaces are not even or are damaged. They are also great for applications where the load may be fragile or highly reactive to vibration, such as small parts or glass.
Shorter Lead Times And Savings On Domestically Manufactured Parts.
With more than 100 years of caster design experience, we frequently reverse engineer parts to solve our customers’ unique challenges. Caster Concepts designs and manufactures our parts at our headquarters in Albion, Michigan. As a trusted local source, we’ve helped many high-end automotive manufacturers save time and money by eliminating overseas shipping costs and significantly reducing the time it takes to manufacture a finished part. All while meeting load and safety requirements.
