Castors can be identified in three separate categories, Pressed Steel Castors, Fabricated Steel Castors and Special Application Castors. To ensure you make a clear identification of the product you need, we have clearly defined the three main types.
Pressed Steel Castors
usually have a swivel head bearing of either a single or double ball race construction. The balls run in tracks formed in the top plate and fork pressings that are then secured together by a heavy duty riveted steel kingpin.
Fabricated Steel Castors
are precision machined from heavy steel forgings and have swivel head bearings of ball races, taper bearings or a combination of both. The forks are securely welded to the swivel head forging resulting in a very strong construction suitable for extra heavy loads.
Special Application Castors
everything from high temperature to low level and from furniture to freight containers.
