Ergonomic Casters & Accessories to Outsmart Back Pain
Hamilton Caster offers a lineup of ergonomic casters, wheels, and related accessories. The new running gear is designed to
satisfy high standards established by leading ergonomists and safety managers in today’s manufacturing environments. The
new ergo caster series is a marriage of Hamilton’s best rolling and quietest polyurethane wheels mounted in Hamilton’s
newest Spinfinity maintenance-free kingpinless casters. Hamilton
Caster is the only manufacturer to publish extensive ergonomic data
for its most popular industrial wheels on its website. The chart data
details the startup and maintain forces plus load distribution (lbs. per
sq. in.) and footprint (sq. in.). for the specific wheel.
Building the Colossus | 200-Ton Toting Casters
One of Hamilton’s highlights the last few years was the opportunity
to design and build four 100,000-pound capacity casters for a federal contractor. Fully assembled, each caster towers 52 inches above
the factory floor and weighs more than 8,000 pounds. Together, they
represent Hamilton’s highest payload capacity ever: 200 tons. Each
Colossus caster was designed with a spring-loaded suspension system to absorb shock. The swivel construction consisted of 32-in.
and 18-in. dia. raceways flame hardened to 55-60 HRC with a total of (96) 1.5-in. dia. bearing balls. Each caster also
featured an eight position swivel lock for directional control, a huge 7-in. dia. oscillating axle to accommodate uneven
surfaces, and a foot-operated braking system. The massive payload required 36 in. diameter by 20 in. wide extreme duty
press-on tires with 4.5-in. dia. tapered roller bearings. Hamilton’s Cart and Trailer division designed and fabricated the
integrated towing system weighing over 4,500 lbs. for the two front casters.
