Properly Specified Casters Improve Bus Manufacturing Productivity and Safety.

Diverse Solutions for the Bus Manufacturing Industry.

Optimizing manufacturing material handling ROI and advancing a safer workplace can be a balancing act. Understanding the trade-offs between caster lifespan and cart load capacity while minimizing overexertion and other injuries — including noise reduction — enables bus and motor coach manufacturing facilities to perform safely at the highest level.

At Caster Concepts, our solutions engineers are qualified to work with you to specify the correct caster or AGV for your facility’s material handling challenges.

For example, larger and heavier component parts for buses – including the larger EV batteries they’re equipped with – are easier to move when the material handling carts have the correct ergonomic caster.

An Easier Push For Moving Heavy Carts

Caster Concepts offers a variety of push force-reducing casters like Twergo designed to prevent operator strain when moving higher-capacity carts. And our Swivel-on-Swivel casters provide large bus manufacturers the flexibility and maneuverability to utilize various workstations to accommodate changing production requirements.

Whether you’re moving chassis components or assembling interior fixtures, our engineers have seen similar situations and designed a solution tailored to exact specifications.
