Classification Of Casters

We Jiang Qing castor for classification from the diameter of the castor , the rotation of the castor wheels, casters, the brake, used in the caster, caster wheel scaffold material, castor wheels, casters, caster wheel load design and castor stent surface treatment of castor for 10 aspects such as the classification.Today we will discuss the differences and connections between casters, wanxiang and directional wheels.

What is a caster?

The English of the Casters is often translated into Casters, and in Europe, Castor is also often written.

Definition of casters

According to the experience of the production of casters in the last 30 years, our company has a reference to the relevant scientific literature, which is defined as follows:

Castor is a kind of no driver, using a single wheel, or double, or more wheels together, used to install under a larger object (the object, we usually defined as "car"), so that the object can be convenient to move. For castor wheels, often USES the rubber wheel, cast iron wheel, pu wheel, nylon, plastic round stainless steel wheel, phenolic resin wheel material (material about castor wheels, we Jiang Qing wheel industry will in future castor lecture detailed description). Castor widely used, including warehousing, logistics, supermarket trolley, furniture, furniture and other equipment, heavy duty castor also be applied to the pallet, cart, container equipment (on the application of castor, we Jiang Qing wheel industry will also truckle lecture to discuss with you in the future).In general, the caster has a flat surface environment for the work, so that it can operate flexibly. , of course, with the development of the society, to the higher requirement of the working device, the design of castor also have more special solutions, such as damping castor, v-shaped castor etc (castor about these special equipment, also in castor lecture a broader debate).

An explanation of the caster in an encyclopedia

A caster (or castor) is an undriven, single, double, or compound wheel that is designed to be mounted to the bottom of a larger object (the "vehicle") so as to enable that object to be easily moved. They are available in various sizes, and are commonly made of rubber, plastic, nylon, aluminum, or stainless steel. Casters are found in numerous applications, including shopping carts, office chairs, and material handling equipment. High capacity, heavy duty casters are used in many industrial applications, such as platform trucks, carts, assemblies, and tow lines in plants. Generally, casters operate well on smooth and flat surfaces.

The difference and contact between casters, orienteers, universal wheel

Depending on the rotation, the caster can be divided into a Fixed casters or Rigid casters, Swivel casters or Swivel castors, so the caster is a general term for directional and universal wheels. In general, directional wheels and universal wheels are used.

What is a directional wheel

Directional wheel refers to the wheel is installed on the fixed bracket, the so-called fixed bracket, is relative and be installed objects (that is, we call it the vehicles) is fixed, the direction is often used to restrict the movement direction of the vehicle, vehicle along a straight line direction.

What is the universal wheel

Universal wheel is refers to the wheels installed on the scaffold, this rotating bracket is relative with the vertical direction of rotation of the wheels, on the horizontal direction to the 360 degrees of rotation, which can make the vehicle can roll in any direction.
