Debris Retention & Floor Protection

The factory floor, the very foundation for tire manufacturing, bears the brunt of heavy machinery and equipment. Conventional commodity casters, with their unforgiving nature, collect debris and leave scars on the floor, leading to frequent repairs and compromising safety standards. Tire manufacturing environments are rife with debris – a silent saboteur. Casters ill-equipped to handle debris retention become breeding grounds for malfunctions, compromising both safety and efficiency

Ergonomics and Injury Prevention

The burden of moving heavy loads falls on the shoulders of the workforce. Tire manufacturing demands repetitive, physically intensive tasks. Inadequate casters demand Herculean efforts, sapping the energy of employees, diminishing overall productivity, and strain the muscles and joints of employees, paving the way for chronic injuries and eroding morale.

Minimizing Noise & Vibrations

Manual push/pull or powered applications can be noisy when towed on improper casters. Noise level reduction of 10% or more is common when implementing correct caster solutions.

Downtime and Operational Efficiency

Every moment of downtime is a financial blow. Equipment failures, often caused by subpar casters, disrupt the production flow, leading to costly delays and missed deadlines.

Manual Push/Pull and Towline Applications

Tire manufacturing processes require a seamless transition between manual and towline operations. Ill-fitted commodity casters fail to adapt, impeding the smooth movement of materials and disrupting the operational rhythm
