Hamilton introduces New Heavy Duty Casters & Wheels Built for 10-mph Speeds
Friday, February 7, 2020
February 5th, 2020: Hamilton Caster is proud to introduce (4) new caster series and (5) new wheel series designed to transport heavy loads safely up to 10-mph. The new 10-mph speed-rated Spinfinity® XC Casters and Renegade™ Wheels are designed for heavy industrial applications with load requirement ranges from 1500 lbs. to 17,500 lbs. According to Jim Lippert, Hamilton’s VP of Sales, “Too many try to push their industrial casters beyond their typical 3-mph rating to no good end. Using these new casters and wheels designed specifically for 10-mph speeds, those days are over.”
Hamilton’s engineering department began the design of the new Spinfinity® XC Caster Series with mounting plate and inner raceways that are forged steel formed from one piece then precision CNC-machined to provide a superior raceway for high-speed conditions. Next, engineers enhanced the casters with larger axles and massive double stacked precision ball bearings in the wheels to accommodate the higher speeds. Mindful of avoiding any downtime, engineers took the design a step further and added a new “V-Seal” for the swivel raceway. The new enhanced sealed raceway combined with the sealed precision ball bearings in the wheel qualify the casters to be 100% maintenance-free. All (4) caster series are offered in single-wheel and dual-wheel configurations.
To pair with the new Spinfinity® XC Caster rigs, Hamilton is introducing (5) new heavy-duty Renegade™ Wheels offering (3) different polyurethane compounds and (2) different rubber compounds to cover a wide spectrum of industrial environments. The wheels are ultra-thick presson-tire-type with massive 1045 steel cores. Wheel diameters range from 9” up to 36” and load capacities span 1500 lbs. to 34,000 lbs. Additional non-stock sizes are also available.
