Taking the Lead with Exceptional Lead Times on Standard and Custom Casters.

September 27, 2019 By: Bill deMink

Whether you have a single small production floor, square miles of warehouse space, or miles of runway, when you need new casters for your applications, waiting can be a painful process. Not to mention costly.

Fortunately, Caster Concepts offers exceptional lead times on our standard and custom products.

For standard products, lead times are five days or less. For custom casters designed and developed from the ground up, lead times are only 10 days or less. When compared to the industry average of two weeks or more for standard-sized casters, it’s easy to see why so many companies have made the switch to Caster Concepts.

We take great pride in this. When we give our word on a delivery date, we commit to doing everything in our control to honor this pact with our customers.

With these industry-leading lead times comes product choice:   Custom-designed or from our catalog, choose from numerous caster rigs and wheels with a variety of benefits in every imaginable size.

We create casters for the toughest of challenges.

From ergonomic TWERGOTM casters to heavy-duty casters designed for use with line delivery carts and even our ultra-heavy-duty Mammoth or Hercules casters, there is no shortage to choose from. Over the years, Caster Concepts has made custom extreme casters for a variety of challenges, including:

  • Extreme cold or heat, moisture, and chemicals
  • Powered applications that required an axle for a chain, moving over 250,000 lbs
  • Dual wheels casters for a track with a capacity of 50,000 lbs for each caster
  • Unique swivel section designed to achieve consistent smooth rotation for a finishing mandrel (each caster had a 35,000 lb weight capacity requirement)
  • 6-tire turtle caster to disperse weight on a crane used for replacing huge glass solar panels
  • Dual wheel shock-absorbing ergonomic casters with a weight capacity of 14,000 lbs

You can find our casters in many different industries, such as ground support, manufacturing, automotive, and even aerospace.  Industries where we are tasked to solve the most difficult of challenges.
