The flanged wheel is designed to operate on steel tracks to minimize guidance and rolling effort. These wheels are constructed of premium cast iron and steel for high strength and long wear. These wheels are found in various manufacturing settings and are especially beneficial in situations where movement must be limited to prevent injury or to facilitate precision.
They boast a maximum capacity of 15,000 pounds per caster, so they can support even the heaviest of loads. Various bore sizes are available for use with keyway or a variety of bearings.
Bearings: Roller, tapered, and bearingless.
Temperature: Maximum to 800˚F with proper bearing and lubrication.
Standard: All 1-1/2” and 2” width wheels with 3/4” roller bearings are supplied with 1/2” spanner bushing.
Flanged wheels are excellent for precise alignment of work, captive turntables or repetitive processes, including foundry cooling lines.
