Hamilton Caster unveils new Spinfinity casters
The special CNC machining incorporated into the swivel kingpinless construction houses a large internal seal made from Nitrile butadien rubber. The swivel assembly has no outside exposure, making it well suited to keep grease in and contaminants out.
“With Spinfinity casters now available, time spent maintaining casters is actually waste,” Dave Lippert, Hamilton’s president, said. “Maintenance can now spend time on other equipment to support manufacturing uptime and other value-add activities. Any equipment that is reliable and maintenance-free supports lean principles.”
The Spinfinity casters have extra-thick forgings and kingpinless swivel technology, providing superior durability over the life of the casters. The top plate and inner raceway are one forged steel piece, rather than a weldment, leading to unmatched strength for shock conditions. The raceways are CNC-machined and then hardened to a uniform depth, assuring a smoothly swiveling caster under heavy loads.
Manufactured in Hamilton, Ohio, there are three different sizes on offer: The ZFWH Series, with two-foot wide wheels, four-inch by five-inch mounting plate and up to 2500 pounds per caster; the ZFHS Series, with two-inch wide wheels, four-and-a-half-inch by six-and-a-quarter-inch mounting plate and up to 3000 pounds per caster; and the ZFFM Series with three-inch wide wheels with the same four-and-a-half-inch by six-and-a-quarter-inch mounting plate and up to 3200 pounds per caster.
