Several steps that should not be overlooked when choosing the right industrial casters


After selecting the caster wheels and caster brackets for the appropriate industrial casters, there are several steps that are easily missed. Although these steps seem to be important without the choice of wheels and brackets, the fact is that these steps cannot be ignored.
The next steps are as follows:
First, calculate the load bearing weight of industrial casters. First, you must know the weight of the transport equipment and the maximum load weight, so that the casters can be well protected. There is a corresponding formula for calculating the load capacity required for a single wheel or caster: 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 Maximum load weight; M is the number of single wheels and casters used; N is the safety factor (about 1.3-1.5).
Second, the diameter of the selected caster. In general, the larger the diameter of the caster wheel, the easier it is to push, the greater the ability to load the weight, and at the same time it can better protect the ground from damage. Therefore, the choice of the size of the caster wheel diameter should be determined by considering the weight to be withstood and the starting thrust of the load under load.
The last two steps to select an industrial caster are to ensure the flexibility of the wheel to rotate and to always pay attention to the temperature of the product. Temperature has a great influence on the corrosion resistance of industrial casters, so care must be taken to influence the temperature.
