Choose Aerol’s Durable Casters for Ground Support Equipment

Ground support equipment requires durability that goes above and beyond normal circumstances. Unforgiving conditions damage luggage carts, cargo decks, dollies, and other wheeled equipment. This makes choosing a safe and durable caster for your application a top priority. Aerol builds products that last longer.  You can move heavy loads better, reduce costs, and hold up in less-than-ideal conditions. All while meeting the stringent safety standards demanded by the ground support industry.

Under extreme loads and in extreme conditions, we’ll help keep your operation rolling.

We have designed and built several custom casters for aerospace aviation companies, airplane manufacturers, military contractors, and private jet and helicopter manufacturers. Here are some innovations and insights that have put Aerol at the forefront of caster technology for military and aerospace applications.

Conquer corrosion with our aluminum casters, renowned for their high corrosion resistance, high tensile strength, and universal sectional properties. Crafted from high-grade #356 aluminum, our casters are trusted by major airlines and both civilian and military ground support services.

Running Gear for Military Applications

From light-duty utility trailer axles to from and rear axle synchronized steering units for people movers. Aerol running gear assemblies are always on the move. Our Side Angle Mount (SAM) suspension unit features a shock-absorbing unit.  That bolts to the side of ground support equipment for vehicles requiring a low center of gravity and approach angles. This flexible design allows for front and rear steering for maneuvering in restricted areas or conventional front-end steering when the equipment is power towed.

Another featured project is our Banjo Mount Suspension Unit. The Banjo Mount can be bolted to the side of mobile equipment, eliminating the need for an axle while providing a lower center of gravity and approach angles.

MIL-Spec requirements

Aerol excels in MIL-Spec requirements. When customers need a product to meet the higher tolerances of military specifications, our facilities are qualified by all armed services branches. Our customers include most of the military’s prime contractors.
