Large equipment manufacturer saves $230,000 a year in caster replacement costs with ErgoMaxx™.
We Build Trust
Import rigs were being replaced monthly on more than 30 carts
Constant caster replacement was increasing costs and affecting productivity
Inexpensive phenolic wheels would chip and crack, making the carts harder to push
A large equipment manufacturer was using an inexpensive import rig with a phenolic wheel at a cost of $30 a caster. These rigs didn’t stand up to heavy use and required replacing many of these casters monthly. The phenolic wheels vulnerabilities were also showing, making the carts harder to push and exposing operators to injury. Costs were adding up and productivity was slowing down.
Ergomaxx Solution and Savings:
$236,000 yearly savings with new ErgoMaxx Casters
These new casters have been in operation for two years, compared to monthly replacement with old casters
Maintenance eliminated and labor significantly reduced
ErgoMaxx™ ergonomic, maintenance-free casters replaced the inexpensive import casters on all carts. These forged steel casters can withstand shock loading and side forces, and the parabolic wheels make it easier to push carts to reduce overexertion injuries.
The casters have been operating for 2 years without the need for replacement. This helped the company recoup their investment in the new ErgoMaxx casters in only 4 months. The company now saves $230,000 annually in maintenance costs while realizing an increase in productivity.
