Heavy duty casters refer to casters with a relatively large load capacity. According to the bearing capacity of the casters, there is no clear boundary for the classification of light-duty casters and medium-duty casters. Usually, the bearing capacity is 500kg to 15 tons, or even higher. Heavy duty casters are highly usable in terms of bearing capacity, and will also have a great role in guaranteeing load safety.
Heavy duty casters have a wide range of applications, with wear resistance, impact resistance, high-temperature resistance, low-temperature resistance, high load, chemical corrosion resistance, and can adapt to various harsh environments. Many factories, warehouses, mining areas, construction and military facilities appropriate choices for the field.
“In recent years, the export of casters from China has reached nearly 50%. And it has been on the rise since 2017 (from 42.6% in 2017 to 48.6% in 2020).” Chinese castors are among the most used products in the market. Some countries even imported all their casters & wheels from China, you can find them everywhere in your country. If you are planning to source caster wheels from your country, why not consider sourcing directly from China? You’ll get the same quality at a cheaper price. Why are Chinese castors so competitive? There are several reasons why this is the case. Here is why:
Contrary to popular belief, Chinese products are of really high quality. You have probably heard or maybe even believe that Chinese products are of poor quality. Well, this is not true. Have you ever asked yourself why Apple manufactures its products in China? It surely can’t be because Chinese products are low quality. Apple saw something special in the Chinese manufacturing industry that is why they switched to manufacturing in China. China has the infrastructure to efficiently produce high-quality products.
This is one of the reasons why most people opt to import goods from China across the globe. The fact that the Chinese manufacture goods in large quantities makes the goods a lot cheaper. This is perfect for businesses since it makes the acquisition of products very cheap and the profits quite high.
Manufacturing materials are easily accessible in China and at a low cost. This makes manufacturing costs low therefore minimizing the cost of products. For this reason, China becomes the best place to import products from. They have state of the art technology and machines to manufacture the best quality products.
Many of our customers from all over the world (such as Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, the UK, Australia and the UAE) only purchased casters locally before meeting us. As far as I know, the most important reason is that they think the price of importing casters locally or from other places may be more expensive, because their purchase quantity is not large, and later we changed their minds with facts. And then they all became long-term customers.

1. How to design the bracket of heavy-duty casters?
The brackets of heavy-duty casters usually use metal materials as the main body, including ordinary steel plate stamping, cast steel forming, die forging and just forming, etc., mainly flat-plate assembly. The steel plate of the heavy-duty caster generally adopts the steel plate of 8mm, 10mm, 16mm or more than 20mm.
2. How to design the rotating plate of the heavy duty swivel casters?
Heavy duty casters usually use double-layer steel ball tracks, stamping and heat treatment. For the rotating plate of the extra-heavy caster, generally use the plane ball bearing or plane needle bearing with greater force, and match the cone-bearing, which effectively improves the load capacity of the heavy duty caster. For the special impact-resistant heavy duty swivel casters, the rotating plate is made of die-forged steel, which is finished and formed, which effectively avoids the welding of the connecting plate bolts, and improves the impact resistance of the caster with greater strength.
3. How to choose the wheel material for heavy duty casters?
Heavy duty casters are used for the movement of heavy equipment, so the wheels of heavy duty casters generally use hard tread single wheels. Such as nylon wheels, cast iron wheels, forged steel wheels, hard rubber wheels, polyurethane wheels, and phenolic resin wheels are ideal. Forged steel wheels and polyurethane caster wheels are especially suitable for extra heavy duty casters.
4. How to choose the wheel diameter of heavy duty casters?
According to the principle that the larger the diameter of the wheel, the more flexible the rotation, the common specifications are 4-inch casters, 5-inch casters, 6-inch casters, 8-inch casters, 10-inch casters, 12-inch casters, and extra heavy duty casters can be 16-inch and 18-inch casters wheel. Of course, in addition to the above dimensions, we can also customize them according to customer requirements.
5. How to maintain heavy duty casters?
6. What are the criteria for judging high-quality casters?
a) The metal surface treatment is uniform in color, free of defects, the base plate rotates smoothly, there is no stuck point, and there is no vertical or lateral gap between the base plate and the bracket.
b) The color of the wheel is uniform, no variegated color, the parting line is small, and it is smooth to touch by hand. Smooth steering, no noise, wheel swing angle is less than 0.3 degrees (EU EN-12532 standard is 0.6 degrees; wheel diameter 50mm, measuring the left and right yaw clearance of the wheel edge is less than 0.13mm; wheel diameter 100mm, measuring the left and right yaw gap of the wheel edge is 0.26, an analogous measure).
The axial clearance is 0.3-0.5mm after the assembly of the turning wheel (without bearing) and the bracket, and the clearance between the shaft hole and the shaft is 0.1-0.2mm.
c) Casters with brake functions must meet semi-automatic requirements, and the pedaling force is less than 10kg. There is no swing gap after braking the swivel casters. The thrust of 15% of the approved load does not move after braking. The effective braking times are more than 5000 times (the American standard is 1500 times).
d) Equipped with screw casters: After the screw is locked, the screw should not be 1.5mm higher than the plane of the nut to prevent scratches between the casters. The caster has a rivet structure. After the rivet is flanged, the rivet is not cracked, symmetrical, or flattened.
