Basic specification construction of universal caster
It is well known that casters are generally composed of brackets and wheels. The brackets are usually made of metal, but they are also made of plastic. Plastic stents are commonly referred to as all-plastic stents, and they are used in the medical industry, as well as in parts of furniture casters. Of course, metal stands are the most used in the industry. Next, I will introduce the universal caster specification for you.
First of all, casters can be called directional casters and universal casters. The directional caster bracket is equipped with a single wheel, which can only move in a straight line. Universal caster is equipped with a single wheel and can be moved in any direction.
Secondly, the installation height refers to the vertical distance from the ground to the installation position of the equipment. The installation height of the caster is the maximum vertical distance between the caster and the ground. Center of bracket turning distance refers to the horizontal distance from the vertical line of center rivet to the center of wheel core.
Third, hard, narrow wheels are easier to steer than soft, wide ones. The radius of rotation is an important parameter of wheel rotation. Too short radius of rotation will increase the difficulty of turning, while too large radius will cause the wheel to shake and shorten its life.
Fourthly, the factors affecting the running flexibility of casters include the structure and steel selection of the bracket, the size of casters, the type of wheels, bearings, etc. Different casters on different ground, use effect is also different. For example, wood flooring is more suitable for PU or TPE coated casters, soft and more protective floor.
