Heavy duty casters are used in a wide range of industrial applications. They can be used in industrial carts, heavy equipment, and lightweight mobile platforms. Compared to other caster products, heavy duty damping casters have unique characteristics. As a professional industrial caster manufacturer and cast iron wheels manufacturer, China HENGSHUI YUTONG METALWORK CO., LTD wishes to make sure that everyone knows about the characteristics of heavy duty casters as well as how to choose them.

Heavy duty casters, as the name implies, are casters with a relatively high carrying capacity. They are classified as comparatively light, medium-sized casters. However, there is no fixed reference for heavy duty casters in the industry. Generally, the load bearing capacity starts at 500 kg. Casters of 15 tons, including those with a higher load-bearing capacity, can be called heavy duty casters.

Heavy duty caster material

Heavy duty casters are typically used for the movement of heavy duty equipment, so heavy duty casters typically employ a hard treadwheel. Polyurethane wheels, PVC wheels, rubber wheels, nylon wheels, cast iron wheels, forged steel wheels, phenolic resin wheels, and nylon/glass fiber wheels are ideal. Among these, polyurethane caster wheels are especially suitable for extra heavy duty casters.

The brackets of heavy duty casters are usually made of metal, including ordinary steel plate stamping, cast steel forming, die-forged steel forming, etc., usually in a flat-plate assembly. The thickness of heavy caster steel plates is generally 5mm, 8mm, 10mm, 16mm, 20mm, or more.

Rotating plate design of heavy duty universal wheel

Heavy duty casters usually use a double-layer steel ball track, stamping, and heat treatment. For the rotating plate of the special heavy duty universal wheel, the plane ball shaft or the flat needle bearing with larger force is generally used to effectively increase the heavy duty caster’s load capacity. For the special impact-resistant heavy duty universal wheel, the rotating plate has die-forged steel and is finished and formed. This effectively avoids the welding of the connecting plate bolts and improves the casters’ impact resistance, with greater strength.

Common specifications for heavy duty casters

The larger the diameter of the wheel, the more flexible the principle of rotation. heavy duty casters are commonly available in the following sizes: 4 inch, 5 inch, 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 inch, and 12 inch. Extra heavy casters can be 16-inch or 18-inch sizes. For example, 10 ton heavy duty casters produced by YTCASTER are double wheel casters with a diameter of 345mm and a wheel width of 140mm. Of course, the specifications can also be customized.

For many heavy duty casters, a best-seller is cast-iron casters, which are wear-resistant and load-resistant. They also have a long service life. They are ideal logistics transport and industrial transport casters. A significant advantage is that they can be used in extreme environments. However, because cast-iron casters have high road hardness requirements, they are not suitable for use in environments that require ground protection. Cast-iron casters can be widely used on concrete and other road surfaces.

How to choose a professional heavy duty caster manufacturer

At present, there are many caster manufacturers in the world. When choosing among them, users should not focus only on low prices, as a low price might indicate a poor quality product. To choose a professional heavy duty caster manufacturer and caster wheel supplier, users can refer to the following points:
