Shockingly Good: Hamilton introduces New Shock Absorbing Casters
Designed to meet the needs of the growing aerospace industry
Monday, August 07, 2017
August 7th, 2017: Hamilton Caster is introducing today a new line of shock absorbing casters designed to meet the needs of the growing aerospace industry. These spring-loaded casters feature Hamilton’s newest Spinfinity maintenance-free swivel construction and a unibody spring housing providing up to 200% greater spring travel and a wider operating capacity range compared to Hamilton’s existing line.
The new shock absorbing AE Series casters reduce noise, protect cargo and extend caster, wheel and bearing life. They are well suited not only for aerospace applications but also for those heavy-duty material handling challenges that require extra care during transport in industrial environments.
Hamilton’s Spinfinity maintenance-free kingpinless platform boasts a top plate and inner raceway of forged steel providing a superior raceway for shock conditions. The raceways are CNC-machined and then hardened to ensure protection against shock and smooth swiveling. The spring housing is cleverly designed, laser cut and bent from a single plate of steel, providing durability and an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
The new line is offered in three series covering Hamilton’s three most popular mounting plate sizes. Select from wheels ranging in size from 4-inch diameter by 2-inch wide up to 12-inch diameter by 5-inch wide. All three series qualify for Hamilton’s industry-best three-year product warranty.
Like all Hamilton forged steel casters, the AE Spring-Loaded Casters are manufactured in Hamilton, Ohio USA. Optional accessories such as swivel locks and wheel brakes are also available. These casters can be easily modified to accommodate many custom specification requirements.
