Industrial use casters are not wheels. But pneumatic casters are indeed attached somehow to the wheels of industrial use trolleys and mobile conveyors even.
Perhaps pneumatic casters, rather than the alternatives, will be offering industrialists better performance, providing them with increased traction capabilities and easier steering. Smoother rides over bumpy, worn and torn old factory floors seem possible.
Pneumatic casters are designed for factory workers mandated to operate manual use push and pull trolleys. On old, worn and slippery surfaces, they often encounter challenges with the steering and turning of their trolleys. But with casters attached to their wheels, they can now steer with ease. Precise steering is made possible as a result of including compressed air within the wheels of the trolleys.
These wheels and casters have been recommended for use on cargo-like containers, but they can perform optimally on any form of industrial equipment that needs to be transported or operated manually.
These wheels are so similar to the wheels of motor vehicles in the sense that cars’ tires allow them to move across rough terrain with relative ease. And there are even tread patterns on the caster wheels as well. There is, of course, compressed air with the cars’ tires as well. Pneumatic casters therefor apply similar principles to tires but in much smaller sizes. Small they may be but they are able to manage considerably heavy loads.
Setting aside the industrial arena for a moment, these wheels are also ideal for the wholesale/retail space. Think of large furniture stores with heavily carpeted floors. Store clerks and casual laborers are able to remove furniture and heavy appliances from the retail floor and transport them to loading vehicles should customers prefer to purchase stock off the floor, as is usual in the wholesale shopping environment.
