Hamilton Caster (Hamilton, OH) has introduced a new line of shock absorbing casters designed to meet the needs of the growing aerospace industry. These spring-loaded casters feature Hamilton’s newest Spinfinity maintenance-free swivel construction and a unibody spring housing providing up to 200% greater spring travel and a wider operating capacity range compared to Hamilton’s existing line. Benefits include:
- Reduced noise, cargo protection and extended caster, wheel and bearing life.
- Suitability for not only aerospace applications, but also for those heavy-duty material handling challenges that require extra care during transport in industrial environments.
- Hamilton’s Spinfinity maintenance-free kingpinless platform, which boasts a top plate and inner raceway of forged steel providing a superior raceway for shock conditions. The raceways are CNC-machined and then hardened to ensure protection against shock and smooth swiveling. The spring housing is cleverly designed, laser cut and bent from a single plate of steel, providing durability and an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
The new line is offered in three series covering Hamilton’s three most popular mounting plate sizes: Select from wheels ranging in size from 4-inch diameter by 2-inch wide up to 12-inch diameter by 5-inch wide. All three series qualify for Hamilton’s three-year product warranty.
