Tips About SA (Shock Absorbing) Series Casters

Shock absorbing casters reduce noise, protect cargo and extend caster, wheel and bearing life. HuanXin now offers two styles of shock absorbing casters. Our original patented design with its unique “floating” axle under the springs represents the more economical choice. The second, our new premium aerospace design featuring HuanXin’s newest Spinfinity maintenance- free swivel construction and a unibody spring housing providing up to 200% greater spring travel and a wider operating capacity range.

HuanXin Casters proudly manufactures shock-absorbing casters with a heavy-duty, spring-loaded design to provide a cushioned ride when traversing uneven terrain. The primary goal is to reduce the shock and vibration transferred to the items on the cart, truck, or rack being moved around.

Our shock-absorbing swivel casters have load ratings ranging from 100 lbs. to 18,000 lbs. for nearly any light- to heavy-duty industrial application. We also proudly manufacture these products in the U.S. so that you can put your complete confidence in our durable, high-performance casters.

APPLICATIONS of Shock-Absorbing Caster

You might need casters with shock absorbency characteristics if you plan to transport or provide support for any of the following:

Diagnostic and electrical equipment
Institutional and laboratory equipment and stands
Medical equipment and carts
Mobile workstations
Computer mainframes and towers
Point of purchase displays and shelving
Food processing equipment
Packaging equipment
Sound and lighting equipment
Ground support equipment
Assembly line dollies
Mobile storage racks
Many other light- to heavy-duty applications

Benefits of Shock-Absorbing Casters

You enjoy several benefits by choosing casters with shock absorbency, including:

Protected cargo: The number one reason to use shock-absorbing casters is to reduce the vibration transferred to the contents of the cart.
Reduced noise: Carts can make a lot of noise when traveling over rough surfaces. Spring-loaded casters reduce this by smoothing out the ride.
Decreased risk of overload: The shock absorption feature equalizes the load among four or more casters, reducing the chance of overload and the uncontrollable twisting of the cart.
Increased ease of use: Dollies and carts with spring-loaded casters are easier to roll over cracked flooring, uneven surfaces, thresholds, and other obstructions.
Reduced risk of damage to the floor: Shock absorbency reduces wear and tear on the flooring beneath the casters.

Choosing Shock-Absorbing Casters

Not all shock-absorbing casters are created equal. If the casters you choose are outfitted with the wrong springs, they might do more harm than good. For instance, if the springs are too firm, they could create more noise and cause the contents on a cart to shake and vibrate far more. In fact, if the springs are not sufficiently firm, there could be no shock absorption at all.

Combat these issues by selecting shock-absorbing casters with the right weight capacity for the application.

Another factor to consider is how the springs are mounted. Your options include:

Vertical mount
Inside mount
Outside mount
If the casters always bear the same weight, vertical-mounted springs may be ideal. This design offers no deflection of the springs when the casters carry the weight of the rated load capacity.

Then again, if the load often changes, inside-mounted springs are a suitable choice. They allow for significant variation in cargo weight while keeping vibration and noise to a minimum.

Spring Loaded Casters

A cart moves more smoothly, there is less chance of damage, and there is less noise when using spring loaded casters because they are made to absorb shocks and lessen the impact to the cart. For applications where there are uneven floors, damaged, or debris-filled flooring, spring loaded casters are perfect. They work well in applications where the load, such as small parts or glass, may be delicate or extremely sensitive to vibration.

The correct springs must be used in the spring-loaded casters to obtain the best spring deflection, though, in order to reap these benefits. Determining the right deflection requires science; using the improper shock-absorbing caster can have the opposite effect of what is intended. It can be equivalent to not having a spring at all if the spring constant is set too high. If the spring constant is too low, the shock’s impact may be prolonged and the device may continue to vibrate too much. You can be sure that our engineers have mastered the art of selecting the ideal spring and caster combination for each unique application.

The continual flexing and compression of the high strength chrome vanadium springs extends their lifespan. With as little as 25 pounds of weight per caster, the spring compression begins, producing cushioned loads and silent empty returns. While towing, the lengthy swivel lead lessens excessive shimmy and vibration.

Shock absorbing casters are ideal for jet engine dollies, aircraft jacks, in-plant trailers, trash gondolas, lift truck stabilizer casters, revolving signs and parade floats.

There are several different caster alternatives available. Many of these not only increase functionality but also increase safety and product longevity. The most frequently taken into account safety features include reinforced legs, toe guards, caster locks, and caster brakes. Options that seal a caster’s bearing and prevent contamination of the precise parts are the main options for extending caster life.

Other choices are rack brush wipers, which prevent debris from impeding motion or harming a wheel, and threaded zerks, which are used when a difficult application and high level of maintenance are needed. These options can be included either during the production process or after the caster has been entirely put together.
