This 8-inch by 4-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.
Combined with Forged Steel wheels, these casters become a powerhouse solution for heavy-duty industrial applications. These wheels are hot forged from high carbon steel billets, enhancing their grain structure, ductility, and tensile strength (64,000 psi). With precision machining, they meet tight tolerances, ensuring flat surfaces with rounded edges. Offering the greatest load capacity, impact strength, and rollability among caster wheels. With the proper wheels and bearings, these wheels are capable of withstanding temperatures up to 800 degrees. Featuring our precision tapered bearings, the wheels are capable of absorbing excessive side thrust loading and can be used where high speed operation is essential, all with a load rating of 8000 lbs.
