When moving a valuable product load, your casters become important players for safe transport. Aerol’s line of spring-loaded casters offers you significant advantages over conventional casters because they take better care of your payload.
Minimize damage with a smoother ride. Both outdoor and indoor surfaces can be uneven, and this can be a potential danger to heavy or fragile loads. Spring loaded, shock absorbing casters minimize damage sustained during transport by absorbing impact and load movement.
Directional integrity for straight-line travel. Conventional casters cannot move up or down over uneven surfaces, allowing varying forces to affect the caster. Consequently, the caster may swivel out of its straight-line travel. The result is uneven pull and a decrease in transport speed. Spring loaded casters, however, move vertically to compensate for uneven floor surfaces. This design allows the wheel to continue in a straight line since it always remains in contact with the floor and allows for faster and longer towing capabilities.
Retractable capabilities. A transport dolly fitted with spring loaded casters can be rolled into place over bumps because the caster compensates for the height of the different surfaces.The spring loaded casters retract, letting the legs of the stand be the solid foundations.
Minimized downtime. Although pneumatic tires minimize shock, they require more maintenance than spring loaded casters and aren’t as effective. Treaded shock absorbing casters don’t need air pumps and won’t go flat if punctured or allowed to sit unused.
Quieter ride. Because they don’t oscillate or cause excessive load vibration, spring loaded casters are quieter than conventional wheels, reducing workplace noise pollution.
Spring loaded casters are used on assembly stands and dollies that carry electronic gear, expensive motors, jet engines, rockets, etc.
You can customize any spring loaded caster from Aerol. This includes tapered roller bearings in the wheels and swivel rigs, allowing the caster to accept vertical and side loads.
Our dual wheel shock absorbing casters spread the load over a wider surface area for less stress on the floor, providing more stability and less opportunity for a breakdown.
For extreme damping, a good solution is a spring loaded caster coupled with a pneumatic tire. We also customize all our spring loaded casters, tailoring the springs to fit the weight of your specific application. Our casters can even be shock resistant, an important safety element in many manufacturing environments.
