Casters that Improve Bus Manufacturing Productivity and Safety.
Diverse Solutions for the Bus Manufacturing Industry.
Improving productivity and safety in a bus or any manufacturing facility leads to a higher ROI and a safer workplace. 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 and Safer 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.
Improving Productivity and Safety in Bus Manufacturing Starts with the Proper Caster.
Caster Concepts – Leading in Innovation
Caster Concepts and our sister company, Conceptual Innovations, are trusted by leading automotive, agriculture equipment, off-road heavy duty equipment, and aerospace manufacturers.
A large agricultural equipment manufacturer was using inexpensive import casters on their material handling carts. However, the wheels were not rated to handle more capacity as loads increased. Increasingly, maintenance spent more time, money, and effort replacing these casters, which also affected productivity in other areas because of the time focused on this particular caster issue.View Complete Case Study
