How to repair and maintain the caster wheel in use?

Shortly after using the caster wheel, do you regret that the caster wheel cannot turn, can not achieve normal steering, or the caster wheel wheel is broken, the wheel bearing is damaged, the bracket is seriously deformed, the steel ball falls off, and the brake is not flexible? Is the caster wheel with a short life span not saving time, effort, and effort? So the service life of the caster wheel has undoubtedly become the focus of our attention. The same extension of its service life is also maintained from the use of the caster wheel.

So how can we extend its service life? Then we can maintain the caster wheel in daily use through the following points.


1. Wheels

Visually inspect the wheels for wear. The poor rotation of the wheels is related to debris such as stones and ropes. The anti-wrap cover can block the winding of these debris. Too loose or too tight caster wheel are another factor. Replace broken wheels to avoid unstable rotation. After checking and replacing the wheels, make sure that the wheel shaft is tightened with lock washers and nuts. Because loose axles will cause the spokes and brackets to rub and become stuck. Replacement wheels and bearings should be prepared to avoid loss of production.

2. caster wheel

If the activity turns too loose, it must be replaced immediately. If the center rivet of the caster wheel is fixed by a nut, it must be tightly locked. If the movable steering cannot rotate freely, check the ball for corrosion or dirt. If fixed caster wheel are installed, the caster wheel bracket must be free from bending.

3. Lubrication

With regular lubrication, wheels and movable bearings can be used for a long time. Applying grease to the friction area of the wheel shaft, seal ring and roller bearing can reduce friction and make the rotation more flexible. Under normal circumstances, lubricate every six months. The wheels should be lubricated after the car is cleaned every month.

4. Brackets and fasteners

Tighten the loose axle and nut and check the weld or support plate for damage. Overload or impact can cause the bracket to twist. The twisted bracket makes the heavy load lean on the individual wheels and cause the wheels to fail prematurely. If it is a caster wheel type caster wheel, tighten the nut or firmly rivet and ensure that the equipment mounting bracket is not bent and the insert is installed correctly. When installing caster wheel, lock nuts or lock washers should be used. The installation of the expansion plug caster wheel must ensure that the plug is firmly installed in the casing.

5. Overload

Overload is the main reason for the short life of the caster wheel; overload will cause the caster wheel bracket deformation to affect the steel ball running track, and even the bracket may be overwhelmed by deformation and contact and block the wheel, causing the wheel deformation to crack and debond. So try to avoid overloading the caster wheel and make sure to use it better within its tolerable range.

6. Use different wheels in different places

Choose different caster wheel for different places of use, different materials have different physical and chemical properties. Different caster wheel materials require different environments, of course, the service life of the caster wheel is also different. In order to avoid this kind of situation, it should be used according to the product manual provided by the manufacturer.

Caster wheel are closely related to our lives. Proper use of rain and reasonable maintenance can only be used for a long time to exert its performance. Therefore, users are responsible for the proper maintenance and operation of wheeled equipment. To avoid improper use or equipment, there are overloads, especially heavy on the car. High-speed driving on rough roads or heavy objects hitting the wheels can cause wheel or equipment damage. So develop the habit of regular inspection and maintenance.
