Cast iron

cast-ironCast Iron
Cast Iron Wheels: An economical wheel type offering extremely low rolling resistance, high capacities and the ability to withstand the greatest temperature extremes. Cast iron wheels are often chosen for exterior applications where the surfaces are relatively even but where items like broken glass may be encountered.

The first choice where ease of movement is required, care must be taken on softer surfaces such as concrete or tarmac, as the surface may become worn or indented.

Plain bored cast iron wheels have an effective temperature range between -30°C and +300°C, while wheels with ball or roller bearing are able to operate to a maximum of 120°C.

The choice of S.G. iron wheels in 150mm and 200mm diameters provide high load capacity wheels that can withstand more impact. The metalurgical properties of S.G will allow the S.G iron wheel to dent rather than crack.

V-Groove cast iron wheels that run on inverted angle iron tracks are available in diameters from 100mm to 150mm. This simple track is cheap to install and self-cleaning for assembly line operations. The wheels are easy to roll on and off the end of the track and operate equally well on the factory floor.
