Prevent Damage In Metal Fabrication Environments
PROTECTING YOUR FLOORS WITH WHEELS THAT DISPEL DEBRIS
The environment of a metal fabrication plant can be littered with debris and metal shavings. This was one of the reasons that Caster Connection created CC Apex wheels: wheels that are hard enough to reduce push/pull force, but soft enough to reject debris such as metal shavings and weld slag.
Let Caster Connection help you select the right product the first time, saving you money and hassle.
CC APEX WHEELS DISPEL DEBRIS AND PROTECT FLOORS
A machine shop approached Caster Connection when a customer of their own was suffering from failing wheels and casters. The customer had multiple racks in a facility with a floor covered in metal shavings. The customer tried using hard durometer wheels but found that they attracted debris and made far too much noise. The lower durometer wheels being used (from a popular brand) were quieter but also became embedded with metal shavings.
Wheels that accumulate metal shavings pose two problems for customers; the wheels wear down and cease to be effective, and the wheels badly damage floors.
After approaching Caster Connection, the end user began replacing his wheels with the 5" CC Apex. The customer found that not only did the wheels easily dispel debris, but they also rolled more smoothly and quietly.
The Blickle Chain-Steering system is designed with tow line applications in mind. The chains work to keep the tow line from snaking and jackknifing. Not only does this improve the safety and efficiency of a tow line, it also reduces the stress placed on casters and wheels.
The Chain-Steering system also provides improved maneuverability with it's high-quality casters. This system will ensure the safety of your products and workers, while reducing maintenance downtime.
