Requirements for casters and wheels for workshop carts

Read more


In a workshop, cumbersome and heavy tool components are constantly transported from place to place. A workshop trolley ensures a high level of comfort and efficiency. The tool can be pushed quickly and easily from A to B with a workshop trolley, to assure it is always ready when needed. Therefore the trolley must be equipped with suitable casters or wheels that can withstand the load and meet the requirements. After all, unsuitable or inferior casters – which are too small, for example, or have a weak housing – mean that considerably more effort will be required.

Tool carts and work tables have to carry high loads and they have to remain easy to maneuver. Casters for this application have to have a high load rating, and they have to be able to roll smoothly and lock instantly as needed. Swivel casters provide for easy swiveling and operation of the carts around the shop floor. A swivel caster with brake assures the cart can be locked down quickly.

The swivel casters can be manoeuvered easily in all directions and a trailing total lock ensures a secure hold when standing still.
