5 Ways To Configure Your Industrial Caster Wheels

Sep 22, 2016

In any manufacturing operation, efficiency is critical – moving components with precision, from point A to B, can literally make the difference when meeting critical deadlines and ensuring employee safety and productivity.

In previous blogs, we have discussed how choosing the right heavy-duty caster for the job can be a key component to manufacturing efficiency. Often overlooked, however, is the manner in which these industrial casters are mounted.
