What is a swivel caster ?
A swivel caster incorporates a wheel mounted to a fork, but an additional swivel joint above the fork allows the fork to freely rotate about 360°, thus enabling the wheel to roll in any direction. This makes it possible to easily move the vehicle in any direction without changing its orientation. Swivel casters are sometimes attached to handles so that an operator can manually set their orientation. The swivel caster was invented in 1920 by Seibert Chesnutt, US Patent 1341630.
Additionally, a swivel caster typically must include a small amount of offset distance between the center axis of the vertical shaft and the center axis of the caster wheel. When the caster is moved and the wheel is not facing the correct direction, the offset will cause the wheel assembly to rotate around the axis of the vertical shaft to follow behind the direction of movement. If there is no offset, the wheel will not rotate if not facing the correct direction, either preventing motion or dragging across the ground.
When in motion along a straight line, a swivel caster will tend to automatically align to, and rotate parallel to the direction of travel. This can be seen on a shopping cart when the front casters align parallel to the rear casters when traveling down an aisle. A consequence of this is that the vehicle naturally tends to travel in a straight direction. Precise steering is not required because the casters tend to maintain straight motion. This is also true during vehicle turns. The caster rotates perpendicular to the turning radius and provides a smooth turn. This can be seen on a shopping cart as the front wheels rotate at different velocities, with different turning radius depending on how tight a turn is made.
The angle of, and distance between the wheel axles and swivel joint can be adjusted for different types of caster performance.

why choose Swivel Caster?
Swivel Wheel Casters: Turn on a Dime
If you’re working in a tight space or other environment where greater maneuverability is required, swivel casters are the way to go. Swivel casters rotate 360° and can respond immediately to changes in direction. These casters swivel on ball bearings to keep the wheel turning even under heavy loads. Loads on swivel casters can take more effort to set in motion than rigid casters, because it takes a push to get all the wheels pointed in the same direction before the cart or truck will roll. Also, it can be very challenging for a cart or truck with all swivel casters to roll in a straight line, so this configuration should only be used to travel short distances.
Sometimes the Choice is Both
For some tasks, you may want the ability to roll smoothly backward and forward as well as to change direction. For these applications, you can combine rigid and swivel casters, one type at the front end and the other type at the back end of the truck or cart. This will give you the ability to move the truck or cart over long distances without the struggling to keep the swivels moving forward or being prevented from moving sideways. Some of the more common examples of this configuration are the shopping carts and flatbed carts available to shoppers at grocery and home-improvement stores. This versatile configuration is also suitable for medium to heavy loads.
