New Caster Series Built for Speed
Hamilton introduces Latest Towable Version for Grueling 24/7 Operations…
Hamilton, OH, June 23, 2011: Hamilton Caster, a leading U.S. manufacturer of industrial casters and wheels, has introduced a caster series that’s built for speed and 24/7 operation. The New EHS Caster Series represents Hamilton’s latest version of a towable caster that’s built to outperform and outlast other towable casters in its class. The EHS Series is well suited for use on in-plant trailers, towline carts, and AGV systems. This new series has a unique feature set of combining Hamilton’s new HPI™ Swivel Technology with its best in class polyurethane tread wheels. The EHS Series covers the popular 6” x 2” and 8” x 2” wheel sizes.
Hamilton’s Precision Integrated (HPI™) Swivel Technology has proven to outperform conventional CNC-machined ball raceways, kingpinless, and unit load bearing swivel constructions. The HPI™ design has a superior element of contact and more than doubles the number of contact points. The HPI™ raceways are also 45% harder than conventional hardened raceways and the surface finish is an incredibly smooth 16 micro inches.
Select from five of Hamilton’s world class family of polyurethane tread wheels best suited for your application and environment. For example, for the ultimate tread performance select an EHS Caster with Hamilton’s Ultralast™ wheel which feature polyurethane commonly found on high speed roller coasters. Or select Hamilton’s Duralast XC™ wheels based on its ability to carry 30% more load than other tread types. All wheels are equipped with double sealed precision ball bearings or tapered roller bearings which sustain high speeds far better than the typical straight roller bearing.
The EHS Series is backed by Hamilton’s Three Year Product Warranty. Optional accessories such as brakes, swivel locks, and swivel seals are also available. Similar towable casters for 2.5” and 3” wide wheel widths are available in Hamilton’s EHD and ES Series. Consult Hamilton’s website for more information. .
