Turn up the heat: new high-temp casters and wheels won’t sweat it
Thursday, December 15, 2016 4:28 PM
Call ‘em hot wheels for work. Call ‘em casters that won’t cook. Whatever you call ‘em, one thing’s for sure: these babies stay cool under pressure.
Hamilton is proud to introduce our new line of high-heat casters and wheels. Built tough to withstand the rigors of extreme temps, they’re ideal for rolling anywhere you want to beat the heat—especially in autoclaves, product finish systems, food manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries, where heat treating and coating is increasingly becoming the norm.
“We’re pretty excited about this series. Not everyone realizes that most conventional casters aren’t built to withstand very high heat,” explained Hamilton Vice President of Marketing Mark Lippert. “In the past, we’ve offered high-temperature wheels and casters to our customers on demand. As high-heat becomes more and more part of everyday manufacturing, we now have an extensive line to make it even easier to get what you need.”
To help you understand each offering’s singularly scorching charms, here are some highlights:
