Extra Heavy Duty
Maximum Load Capacity 7000 lbs. per caster
This caster series features Hamilton’s new UltraGlide® wheels mounted in Hamilton’s extra heavy duty industrial casters. The UltraGlide® represents Hamilton engineers' latest modular wheel design to reduce the amount of energy needed to move loads in manual or powered applications. These new wheels are ideally suited for ergonomic applications and any continuous duty operations such as AGV's, AMR's, or other automated material handling applications.
The new UltraGlide™ features independent swivel surfaces that eliminates scrubbing, making it much easier to turn. The wheels are also designed with split outer raceways to minimize friction that provides low startup and maintain forces.
Engineers upgraded the precision ball bearings in both size and quality in the new UltraGlide® to provide more than double the bearing life. Hamilton engineers also designed the die cast aluminum wheel center with a new concave face that concentrates the compression of the urethane toward the centerline of the tread. This design change simulates the cushioning benefits of a thicker, softer tread, but provides the same durability and long life as other more conventional heavy duty wheels.
