This 12-inch by 5-inch 90 series caster, is a durable and high-performance solution designed to excel in demanding applications. Crafted through a drop forged process using C-1045 steel, the yoke and top plate of this caster exhibit exceptional strength and resilience. The integral forged kingpin seamlessly integrates with the top plate, while the precision-machined raceway and threaded kingpin ensure a secure assembly. Through rigorous heat treatment, all components are fortified for enhanced durability. The caster incorporates a precision tapered thrust bearing pressed over the kingpin, engaging the yoke for smooth operation, while hardened ball bearings complete the load-bearing raceway, providing reliable support for heavy loads. The precision-machined and hardened bearing raceways eliminate brinelling when subjected to shock loads, and a 1-1/4″ tapered thrust bearing ensures a precision fit. With its impressive load capacity and excellent value, the 90 Series Caster is a trusted choice for applications that demand durability, precision, and cost-effectiveness, delivering exceptional performance and long-lasting reliability.
Paired with ductile iron wheels, they feature many of the same characteristics of cast iron however, ductile iron has higher tensile and yield strengths. Its greater strength and flexibility — and less brittle-like cast iron tendency — help ductile iron become a better alternative in shocking applications. Packed with our straight roller bearings, which are most effective for heavy loads, and are a great option when facing excessive thrust loading, these casters are rated for 8000 lbs.
