Precision ball bearings

The wheel bearing gives the caster its quality - a caster without a first-class wheel bearing is basically worthless. The bearing must be specially selected, depending on the type of application, to ensure the necessary safety reserves. The wheel bearing is one of the factors – in addition to the tread, wheel diameter and swivel bearing – that determines the running characteristics and thus the quality of a caster.

The group of single-row precision ball bearings (also radial deep groove ball bearings) represents the type of bearing with the highest quality, according to DIN standards. Even under extremely high loads, wheels fitted with these ball bearings have a particularly low roll resistance.

Roller bearing

This type of bearing is shock resistant and robust. The roller bearings – in addition to plain and precision ball bearings – are mainly recommended for use with industrial casters. Their important features include a low installation height, relatively low rolling resistance and a high load capacity. Wheels with a roller bearing should not exceed a driving speed of 4 km/h, which is roughly walking speed.

Cone ball bearing

cone ball bearings are one of the most important subgroups of ball bearings. The great advantage of this type of bearing compared to plain bearings is the use of balls. These offer even better rolling characteristics.

Precision ball bearing/strong>

The group of single-row precision ball bearings (also radial precision ball bearings) in different designs is the type of bearing with the highest quality, according to DIN standards. Even under extremely high load, wheels fitted with these ball bearings have a particularly low rolling resistance.
