Caster Concepts Develops New "High-Speed" Casters for Industrial Applications



Caster Concepts is pleased to announce a faster and more efficient line of casters, the 55 & 57 Series. These new kingpinless casters can handle loads up to 1,200 lbs. by distributing downward pressure over a larger area; reducing cost and increasing longevity.

Derived from a traditional caster using a bearing race held together by a kingpin, Caster Concepts kingpinless swivel bearing holds the yoke and the plate together without chatter at all speeds using 25% less force.

Features and benefits of Caster Concepts 55 & 57 Series include:
  • Casters swivel faster with less resistance
  • Maintenance free
  • Accommodates high-speed applications
  • Wheels available in 4", 6", 8" and 10" diameters
  • Sealed bearings with hardened raceways and neoprene seals

    The 55 & 57 Series are an excellent choice for production racks and fixtures, part bins, conveyor systems, and all applications where maintenance, speed, and ergonomics are concerns.

    Caster Concepts is a leader in manufacturing industrial casters and wheels. For further information and a custom beyond standard solution please call 517-629-8838, or email sales@casterconcepts.com.
