Low profile casters, as a type of casters specially used for mechanical equipment and automation equipment, have a wide range of uses. Although the low profile casters itself is only an accessory in the equipment, its role in the overall equipment is crucial. Because the low profile caster can stay in one place with high load for a long time without reducing the performance of the caster, the ordinary caster cannot match this advantage. Therefore, the low profile casters are especially suitable for equipment that doesn’t move frequently. When the equipment needs to be parked for a long time for some reason and moved again, in order to ensure the safety of movement, it is appropriate to choose a low profile caster. Although the appearance of the low profile casters is different, their characteristics can be summarized into two points. Its installation height is lower than that of ordinary casters of the same size, but its wheel width is wider than that of ordinary casters of the same size. This is because its low installation height can make its lower plate more stable, and the wide wheel surface can improve its carrying capacity. Therefore, low profile casters are generally known for their high bearing capacity and low profile.
1. The bracket of the low profile caster is stamped and formed by 24mm thick steel plate, which is suitable for short-distance transportation of 200kg-400kg load-bearing goods.
2. Low profile casters can be made of casters of various materials according to different environments.
3. Different casters can also be selected according to the size of the environmental carrying capacity.
4. Low profile casters are available in two bearing types, ball bearings and needle bearings.
The advantages of low profile casters include having low installation height, stable center of gravity and higher load-bearing capacity.
What are the Application Scenarios of Low Profile Casters?
Low profile casters are more suitable for heavy automation equipment, such as mechanical equipment, medical equipment, network cabinets, computer control cabinets, assembly line equipment, electrothermal machinery, test machinery, etc. Commonly used low profile casters are 2 inches, 2.5 inches and 3 inches. The application of low profile casters in new energy, 3C, semiconductor and other industries is very common.
“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.

Generally, the low profile casters produced are used in an indoor environment set at room temperature, so try to avoid using them in special environments, such as high temperature, low temperature, multi-temperature, high acidity, high alkalinity and high salt. Where there are chemical solvents, oil, seawater and liquid chemicals, they will directly contact the casters, which will reduce the efficiency of the low profile casters. If you need to use it in a special environment, please contact us for consultation before using it.
Low profile caster load: 2-3 inch single wheel load 220-540kg.
The treatment method of the stent: the stent can be changed at any time according to the needs of the customer.
Scope of application: suitable for long-term fixed precision machines, heavy-duty low-speed transportation.
Bracket: the ultra-low structure of the caster with low center of gravity and the unique arc design of the anti-steel wrist make it more durable and practical, and the surface treatment of baking paint greatly improves the corrosion resistance. A longer lifespan is guaranteed.
Wheels: imported glass fiber reinforced nylon, one-shot injection molding, hard and wear-resistant, high and low temperature resistance, anti-aging and other functions, stable flat single wheel structure and chrome steel double ball precision bearings. A small dust cover, which is waterproof and dustproof, protects the bearing and makes it more durable. The wheel width is about 10mm larger than similar products on the market, and it is more durable and stable.
When the low profile caster needs to move or manipulate it, the force must be transmitted to the low center of gravity caster through the object and overcome a certain resistance. The amount of resistance depends on a variety of factors: load, wheel diameter, material, and tread shape; caster overhang; bearing type and size; Therefore, it is very important to carefully coordinate all these factors to suit each other when choosing the right low profile caster.
Whether in precision machinery or in life, low profile casters are a type of industrial casters. They exist in two forms: low profile swivel casters and low profile directional casters. When we choose them, we must with sufficient understanding and concepts, it can help us better use low center of gravity casters in production and life, and can better bring more convenience.
The low profile caster is one of the most widely used casters in the machinery industry. Its most notable feature is that the installation height is much lower than others, so it is easy for everyone to distinguish; it can be said that this is not only a part of the appearance It is its only characteristic. Low profile casters are also often referred to as low heavy duty casters.
1. Low profile casters should be used in place to prevent excessive pressure on the casters under cargo.
2. Install and check the casters to be used, do not place heavy objects around to avoid damage.
3. If there are special needs in the use environment, it should be explained to the manufacturer to carry out special process treatment, so that the service lifespan will be longer.
