Spring-Mounted Castors - Technical Description

Spring-mounted castors ensure, that even sensitive loads can be transported safely. The special spring system compensate unevennesses in the floor, thresholds and ridges. You will find a demonstration on Youtube. Typical applications for spring-mounted castors can be found in gastronomy (avoiding noise emission during transport of dishes), in the IT/electronic branch (for sensitive electrical equipment, that cannot stand any vibrations), in laboratories (in order to avoid spillage/swash of liquids) as well as in the glass industry (breakage prevention). Spring-mounted swivel castors and spring-mounted fixed castors are available in different types for many kinds of application.

Spring-Mounted Castors with Rubber Wheels „LFA/AVK“ und „BFA/AVK“

The spring-mounted swivel and fixed castors with thermoplastic rubber wheels have a strong housing, made from pressed, galvanised sheet steel. The swivel head consists of a double ball cage, wheel axles are bolted. The installed rubber wheels are dark grey and do not leave marks on the floor, they have a light grey polypropylene rim, a deep groove ball bearing for smooth running and plastic thread guards.

Spring-Mounted Castors with Polyurethane Wheels „LFOK/PAK“ „BFOK/PAK“
Spring-Mounted Castors with Stainless Steel Plolyurethane Wheels „LFOKN/PAKN“ „BFOKN/PAKN“

The strong housing of these spring-mounted castors is made from galvanised, pressed sheet steel resp. stainless steel. Due to the closed swivel head  with (stainless steel) deep groove ball bearings the spring-mounted housings are particularly insensitive to dust and splashing water. Wheel axles are bolted to the housing. The wheels, assembled in these spring-mounted swivel castors and fixed castors have an aluminium rim, on which the blue coloured polyurethane is firmly bounded. The wheels will not leave marks on the floor. The running surface is convex. The wheels have a deep groove ball bearing resp. stainless steel deep groove ball bearing, are noiseless, abrasion-resistant and have a low rolling resistance. These spring-mounted castors have a suspension travel of 5 mm. Depending on the load, the spring power of the swivel rollers and fixed rollers can be individually adjusted, if required; please ask. The maximum spring power is reached at 70 kg - 250 kg, depending on the spring model.

Spring-Mounted Castors with Elastic Wheels „LFM/EKK“ „BFM/EKK“
Spring-Mounted Castors with Polyurethane Wheels „LFM/PGK“ „BFM/EKK“

The strong spring-mounted swivel housings and fixed housings "LFM" and "BFM" are made from galvanised, pressed sheet steel.

Either elastic wheels or polyurethane wheels can be mounted in these spring-mounted housings.

Spring-Mounted Castors with Elastic Wheels

The blue coloured elastic solid rubber is fimly bonded to the polyamide rim, the wheel has deep groove ball bearings.

Spring-Mounted Castors with Polyurethane Wheels

The running surface, made from polyurethan is firmly bonded to the cast iron rim. The wheels have a deep groove ball bearing, are noiseless, abrasion-resistant and charactarise by a low rolling resistance. The spring-mounted elastic rollers as well as the polyurethan rollers hav a maximum spring power of 400 kg. The load capacity of these rollers is 400 kg, if elastic wheels are mounted and 800 kg, if polyurethane wheels are assembled. The rollers are available as swivel castors, swivel castors with break and fixed castors.

Spring-Mounted Castors „LFV/…“ „BFV/…“

Spring-Mounted Castors series "LFV/" "BFV/" have extra strong, pressed and welded sheet steel housings which are galvanised. The rotating assembly of the swivel castors does not have a center pin, the double ball cage is hardened and closed thus dust and splash proof and particularly insensitive against shocks and impacts, the wheel axles are screwed in place. The housings have a assembly plate and a spring made from steel (powder-coated in blue) or optionally a spring made from Vulkollan® (LFV/.../VF).

Different wheels can be embedded into the housings:

Spring-Mounted Castors with Elastic Wheels

Optionally with blue elastic solid rubber wheels, non-marking and with deep groove ball bearings (wheels "EKK") on which the elastic solid rubber is inextricably connected with the polyamide rim or with black solid rubber wheels (wheels "EAK") on which the solid rubber is also inextricably connected to the aluminium rim. These wheels also have deep groove ball bearings.

Spring-Mounted Castors with Polyurethane Wheels

Wheels made from polyamide, with deep groove ball bearings. The tyre, made from blue polyurethane SOFT (78 +/-3° Shore A) is inextricably connected with the plastic rim (wheels "PKKS") or with an aluminium rim (wheels "PAKS"). The wheels do not leave any marks on the floor.

Wheels with polyurethane coating 92 -/+3° Shore A, either inextricably connected with an aluminium rim (wheels "PAK") or with a rim made from cast iron. Both versions have deep groove ball bearings and do not leave any marks on the floor.
