The service life of our castors with a 100 tonne load: years.
and therefore, after a short time, their treads tear off. That is precisely why our solutions are anything but ordinary. For our customer Georg Kramp, we have developed a customised wheel with a special design which ensures maximum durability, even after many years of use.
Due to the special requirements, it was clear that we would need to develop a completely new wheel for the GKS trolleys. All of the components were carefully examined such as the core, the bearings and, above all, the tread material. We invested a lot of time in development and cooperation. Working closely with Kramp, we tested the custom-made product and perfected it under real conditions.
As a result, we created a solution that meets all of the requirements and is recognised for its outstanding durability even under adverse conditions. The newly developed wheel has four ball bearings and consists of a toothed aluminium core that is encapsulated with polyamide. The interlocking of the core and the tread is crucial. It provides a larger connection surface and at the same time ensures that the two components interlock. The result: maximum hold for a particularly strong connection. The fibre-reinforced polyamide used for the tread also plays a key role in ensuring excellent durability.

The new wheels demonstrate exceptional stability and durability even under particularly high loads and on difficult floors. Thanks to the well-considered design and the deformation-resistant material, the tread does not separate from the aluminium core even after years of service. This is also appreciated by Kramp's customers: No complaints have been upheld since the switch to our solution.
