Revvo Caster Introduces New TwinTech Combi Total Lock Swivel Casters

Press release date: March 1, 2006

(March 2006) - The Revvo Caster Company, Inc., West Seneca, New York announces the introduction of its new TwinTech Combi total lock swivel casters. Available in 12 twin-wheel models, the new Revvo caster range is designed for medical equipment, hospital beds and stretchers, appliances, furniture, retail displays, and for other applications requiring dependable performance combined with design style, Revvo Caster states. They are available with a fully-enclosed, positive mechanical brake and locking system for when all casters in a combination set need to be locked simultaneously.

Featuring soft, streamlined contours, TwinTech Combi casters are constructed of lightweight, pressure-diecast aluminum shells and are engineered to reduce swiveling and pushing effort necessary in demanding applications, according to Revvo. The total lock mechanical brake allows the wheels to swivel and rotate freely when in the "off" position, and will prevent swiveling and rotation when in the "on" position. The central locking mechanism can be locked in three distinct positions, providing free swiveling, swivel locked with wheel free, and total locking of both wheels and swivel. The locking system uses complementary metal teeth on the wheel hub and swivel pin and does not cause the wear on brake pads and tire surfaces common to conventional friction brakes, the company states.

The new TwinTech Combi swivel casters are available in four total lock and eight total and directional lock models with load capacities ranging from 198 to 330 lbs. Models with 5" and 6" wheel diameters are offered with overall heights of 138mm and 164mm respectively. Swivel radii for the 5" casters are 106mm and 131mm for the 6" models. Revvo Caster states that the roller bearing and twin-wheel design provide low rolling resistance and perfect tracking down long corridors. Standard wheel materials include gray polyurethane and gray rubber. A variety of options are available including: "gold seal" washable casters, "D" cam mounting, longer mounting stems, color finishes (White RAL 9000 is standard); electrically conductive tires, non-magnetic casters, and black nylon tires.
