Proven solutions to lower push force, move more material and reduce wheel replacements.
Choosing the right caster has a significant impact on your plant’s performance.
Balancing between maximizing load weights and minimizing overexertion injuries and noise is a challenge in material handling. Our solutions engineers will work with you to specify the correct caster to manage these trade-offs, delivering quantified improvements in cost, uptime, and safety.
Large Equipment Manufacturer Saves $230,000 A Year With ERGOXCEL™
Replacing an inexpensive, $30 import rig with a phenolic wheel with ERGOXCEL changed the game for an equipment manufacturer. The import rigs had increasing push forces and didn’t stand up to heavy use, failing and requiring frequent replacements.
Upgrading to ERGOXCEL™ ergonomic, maintenance-free casters on all carts had a 4-month payback, generating annual savings of $230,000 in maintenance costs. The use of an engineered solution also increased productivity and employee safety.
Reducing Recordable Injuries With Safety-Related Accessories.
From caster swivel locks that give operators more flexibility when transporting and maneuvering material handling carts to wheel brakes for increased safety and stopping power, the benefit of caster accessories always becomes a topic of conversation. Another popular option is our toe guards, a simple and very effective option to help protect an operator’s foot and prevent serious injuries.
Our casters are designed for optimum ergonomic performance.
Let’s discuss your material handling challenges:
- Move more material with 25% less push force on average – with Twergotm casters
- Tight turn radius –Swivel-on-Swivel lessens turning footprint
- Factory noise reduction – CasterShoX® can reduce shock loads by 80% and noise by 15 dB.
- Long life casters – ERGOEXCEtm.
