Hamilton Introduces All-new Endurance Caster Series
The new endurance is intended for 24/7 continuous duty operation and mission critical applications that can’t afford to fail.
May 17th, 2021: If you’re familiar with industrial casters, you know that 3.5-inch to 5-inch-diameter casters are industry standard. Like Honda Civics, they are everywhere. When they fail, you can swap in new casters and keep the same hardware. But what about industrial casters that cannot fail—like ones that are mission critical for aerospace, automotive, or other mission critical application. Regular industry-standard casters are typically not designed to provide continuous fail-safe operation.
Thanks to Hamilton’s all-new Endurance series, there is now an industry-standard-sized caster for just that. With a maximum load rating of 1000 pounds per caster, the new Endurance Series features the highest rated industrial casters with the same critical dimensions as the industry’s highest volume product class. Endurance is also the first and only industrial caster series designed with forged kingpinless construction and heat-treated raceways in such a small form factor.
The forged steel construction is well-suited for applications that require 24/7 operation or for applications that are too critical to fail. The series features 3-1/2-inch, 4-inch, and 5-inch diameter wheels and the industry’s most popular 2-1/2-inch x 3-5/8-inch mounting plate. These wheel diameters, mounting plate, and overall height all match many popular brands.
Endurance’s only dimensional difference lies in its wheel width and leg thickness. To achieve a higher load rating and durability, Endurance features two-inch-wide wheels and thicker legs (other brands have 1 1/4-inch-wide wheels). Smart buyers will pay a little more up front for its premium construction and ultra-rugged design—then reap the savings in the long run while it runs and runs without breaking a sweat. Endurance is intentionally designed and over-engineered for applications where replacement is cost prohibitive.
