Dual flanged wheels operate on a rail for locating fixtures in a precise position for indexing through a work cycle. Premium cast iron and steel is used for the wheel material to provide high strength and long wear.
Various bore sizes are available and wheels can be key-wayed if desired to meet the application.
Flanged wheels running on in-plant tracks give an “instant production line.” Loads are taken off the floor permitting higher capacities, easier rolling, floor protection and controlled flow all at the same time.
Standard flanged caster wheels are cast iron except as noted and are furnished with plain bore, straight roller bearings, or precision tapered roller bearings. Heat treating is available for applications requiring better wear resistance, or involving higher capacities.
Flanged caster wheels are excellent for precise alignment of work, captive turntables or repetitive processes, including foundry cooling lines.
