Industrial facilities move thousands of pounds of weight each hour. This is really a serious matter. No one wants thousands of pounds rolling down a trailer and hitting into anyone or anything. Even a small amount of drift can cause serious damage or injury. Ideal-Stop caster brakes are arguably the most versatile brake in existence, and CNH was able to empower themselves with these incredible brakes. All we did was give them the education and tools they needed to concentrate on their daily operations and focus on any other issues they might be experiencing.
Before CNH began working with Caster Connection to improve working conditions and productivity, they were encountering some major problems with their laser cutting workflow. The major problem lay with the casters that were on the carts they had been using. These were changed to the CC Nylex with extreme results.
Case New Holland was serious about improving ergonomic, safety, and production initiatives, but they realized that they were not caster experts. They had tried other products through the years, but these products had proved to be very ineffective. Discover how Caster Connection finally solved their problems.
Owners of a storefront were worried they had to delay the grand opening of a new location due to an inability to get a set of casters on time.
Due to the success and recognizable orange color of Caster Connection's CC Apex caster wheel, numerous manufacturers have come out with their inferior version of the product by mimicking its orange color. There are a lot of orange wheels out there, but only one CC Apex.
This lesson was learned the hard way when a large auto manufacturer purchased what they thought were CC Apex wheels for some of their carts.
A large baking facility was having problems with carts carrying heavy amounts of dough. The carts were using phenolic wheels with roller bearings.
The special blend of polyurethane in the CC Apex wheel causes debris to be expelled rather than get embedded in the wheel. After an initial trial on one cart, the facility manager was impressed with the performance of the wheels and ordered all the carts to be replaced with CC Apex wheels.
A furniture maker was tasked with finding an aesthetically pleasing, vintage looking caster for a large, special project. They were having problems finding the right wheel that would be wheel safe for delicate wood flooring.
A poultry producer was using a very hard 4” x 1-1/4” polyolefin wheel for their feed carts. The wheels were very noisy, and broke after only a few months of use, causing downtime and replacement costs. The polyolefin was cracking due to debris and particulates getting imbedded in the wheel.
A material handling company was using a 6” x 3” polyurethane wheel that was continually failing and retaining large amounts of debris. This made the company’s carts very difficult to move, which resulted in lots of downtime and regular maintenance issues. Because the facility had a new floor that the company wanted to preserve, they also needed the best surface protection available.
