"Rookie" chooses five major concerns of industrial casters


If you are a "white" in industrial casters, how to choose a number of casters is a headache. To help laymen make the right choices, here are four very important aspects.

The first step is to focus on the material.
Industrial casters are made of rubber, nylon, polyurethane, cast iron, elastic glue, plastic and more. Different materials are available for different scenarios. For example, polyurethane wheels are suitable for indoor and outdoor venues; nylon and cast iron wheels are suitable for floors with no impurities on the ground; but elastic rubber wheels can be used in hospitals, star hotels, tiles and wooden floors. A quieter venue when driving.

The second step is to focus on the bracket.
In order to choose the right caster bracket, you must first consider the weight that the caster can bear.
E.g. In relatively quiet places such as supermarkets, hospitals, office buildings, clubs, etc., the ground is generally good, smooth and the goods being transported are relatively light, and the plating rack made of high pressure is suitable for this. In places where the noise is relatively large in factories and warehouses, it is more suitable for these places to make a wheel frame with a relatively thick steel plate.

Third, calculate the load weight.
Calculate the maximum load weight of the industrial casters so that the casters are well protected.
Corresponding formula: T=(E+Z)/M*N: T is the required load weight for a single wheel or caster; E is the weight of the transport equipment; Z is the maximum load weight; M is the number of single wheels and casters used. ; N is the safety factor (about 1.3-1.5).

Fourth, focus on the diameter.
The larger the diameter of the industrial casters, the easier it is to push, the greater the ability to load weight, and the protection of the ground from damage. Accordingly, the price is higher than the small diameter industrial casters.

Fifth, focus on flexibility.
The reasonableness of the turning radius directly affects the service life of the steering casters, which can better maintain the equipment and shock absorbers.
