Before you order wheels, take time to consider the specific needs of your application.
Wheels & Casters
Planned obsolescence has become part of the life cycle of many products. The practices of traditional and industrial manufacturers can help move economies back toward sustainability. Take a look at how simple industrial wheels serve as a model for robust manufacturing.
Proper maintenance and selection of industrial wheels ensures a long service life. Learn about how load capacity, operating environment, and track conditions influence steel wheel maintenance. Learn about how using bearings or bushings with lubrication is essential for reducing wear.
Bearings and bushings reduce friction between the wheel and axle. Learn about the differences between bearings and bushings and their respective load and speed limitations. Learn how different load types (radial, axial, combined, and moment loads) affect bearing and bushing selection.
Finding the perfect wheel for your application can be a smooth process with the right knowledge. Wheel customers have three distinct choices when selecting wheels to meet specific needs: Find a stock or standard wheel. Find a stock or standard wheel that is close to
