Why The Casters Need To Have These Features
For different reasons and purposes, large, heavy duty casters are prepared in different materials, from cast iron to aluminum. In spite of its large and seemingly cumbersome size, these casters also operate on sets of wheels, for different reasons and purposes. The wheels that are installed to these casters are different as well. No one set of wheels is exactly the same, for different reasons and purposes.
Wheels are necessary to stabilize casters on all types of surfaces. Speaking of which, it is almost a given that shock absorbing casters are being used. Highly unlikely, it is in the extreme, but if casters are not shock absorbing then they should be. You can pretty much configure any type of commercial or industrial business operation you can think of. Take a delicate operation then by way of an example. Pharmaceutical materials cannot afford to be tampered with.
If they need to be carried across a floor surface in a caster, usually for efficiency of purpose, they cannot be compromised in any way. An industrial example then. Paints still in the process of being manufactured cannot afford to be tampered with either. Chemicals are still being prepared for processing into the paint. And take a dangerous example too then. Casters will be bearing highly inflammable materials.
While these materials are housed in secure casings, additional care needs to be taken over the industrial floors’ surfaces. Well-used surfaces may have dents and the finest of scratches across them that could compromise any materials being housed in a caster. The moment any bumpy or uneven surface is negotiated, shock absorbing features take over, keeping safe the integrity of all goods carried.
Caster wheels are cushioned to take care of noise levels and the heaviest of loads.
