Importing caster wheels from other countries can be challenging; however, you can complete the process successfully with the right tips.
1 What are your purchasing objectives?
These are the first and foremost things you need to define.
First, you want to sell heavy duty caster online (like Amazon, eBay, etc.) or be a caster wheel distributor or supplier.
It’s crucial that you understand your business strategy, whether you’ll be wholesaling the casters to other sellers or selling directly to consumers/end users.
This is an essential part of your caster wheel business.
2 Identify a caster wheel factory
When you import the caster wheels from the factory directly, there’s a possibility that you’ll get the casters at a reasonable price.
If you don’t have time to visit the factory in person, you could ask the supplier to have a video call. You could check the workshops, samples room, manufacturing equipment, testing facility and much more.
Choose a reliable factory, and then you could have a product guarantee, such as a 1-year, 3-year, or 5-year quality guarantee.
3 Decide on the method of shipment
You need to use which method to make all the imported heavy duty casters get to your country.
Typically, you have two options, shipping by air or by sea. Most people prefer shipping by sea because of low cost though somehow slow. (the unit weight of heavy duty caster is much heavier than other casters, sea shipment is highly recommended). But if you need casters urgently, then you can consider shipping by air.
4 What’s the HS code (commodity code) for heavy duty casters?
There are two standard HS codes for casters, one is 83022000, and the other is 87169000. You could also consult with your shipping forwarder for the correct HS code in your country, as this may vary from one country to the other.
Heavy duty casters usually use a top plate, kingpinless, or forged steel construction for much higher capacity than light duty or medium duty casters. It rarely uses heavy duty stem or bolt hole mounting types like light-duty or medium-duty casters.
They have zerk grease fittings in the ball bearing raceway & axle for regular maintenance and lubrication.
The Heavy duty caster has high-quality swivel locks, which allow a swivel caster to become a fixed caster. The purpose of locking a heavy duty caster in a fixed position is to transport the caster some distance and to be able to steer the caster to the final desired position.
Once a heavy duty caster approaches its exact destination, the caster is unlocked to move the equipment in all directions to position itself.
Heavy duty casters with brakes provide flexibility for movement in tight areas and ease of transport over longer distances.
Double welded legs to the lower raceway and heat-treated raceway for maximum strength are significant heavy-duty caster wheels.
Knowing the varied types of heavy duty casters and wheels will help you find the best caster for your needs.
Heavy duty casters are mainly separated into three types: swivel, rigid (fixed), or locking type.
Heavy duty swivel casters are engineered that the wheel in the caster can spin a full 360 degrees. It’s ideal for moving heavy equipment in any direction to the desired location.
Heavy duty rigid casters (fixed casters), on the contrary, there is no swivel ball bearing raceways and only could be moved forward or backward (in a straight-line path).
A rigid caster won’t roll as movable as a swivel caster, and it is usually used for the machine that doesn’t require much transit.
Heavy duty locking casters could either add a locking device yourself for a previously purchased caster or require the manufacturer to install a brake. It adds an extra safety option when in transit and prevents the caster from turning.
It’s much easier to move the machine with two locking casters and two swivel casters than the device that has four swivel casters.
Heavy duty casters with brakes also seldom cause injuries while trying to control a piece of heavy-loaded equipment, as it takes less force to keep a cart with locking casters.
According to different mounting ways, there are mainly heavy duty plate casters, heavy duty stem casters, heavy duty kingpinless casters.
Heavy duty plate casters are the most common mounting option to attach a caster to the equipment.
Most plate casters have four mounting holes to enable it either by screwed or by welded to the bottom of the unit. They bear more loads than stem casters.
Heavy duty stem casters have a stem on the top of the caster, which is used to attach the caster to the machine. A stem caster is a perfect option when there is tight space on the machine’s mounting surface to mount a plate caster.
They could have various stem sizes to match different types of mounting requirements. Threaded stem, round stem, or square stem are available.
Heavy duty kingpinless caster means they don’t have a bolt and kingpin on the top plate. They are designed to solve the problems of broken caster yokes or failed swivel sections.
The raceways are a one-piece forged construction for extreme loads and maximum durability.
Heavy duty caster series has a wide selection of mounting types, wheels materials, wheel sizes, and yokes. Sometimes it may be difficult to select the right casters for your application.
Therefore it’s essential to consider the following factors to save your time and improve the mobility of your device.
Wheel sizes: there are different heavy duty caster wheels sizes, such as 2 inch, 4 inch, 5 inch, 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 inch, and other wheel sizes.
Loading capacity: how much the total weight the casters should withstand, such as heavy duty casters for 1000 lbs, 2000 lbs, 3000 lbs or 5000 lbs.
The number of casters will be used on the machine; usually, four pcs or six pcs casters.
Operating Environment: The application environment must be considered, which will affect the performance and life of the caster and wheels. The first condition is floor types ( concrete, linoleum, carpet, hardwood floor, etc.). And then next is floor condition. Are there cracks, bumps, or inclined surfaces?
Indoor use verse outdoor use: Casters that are used indoor should be intended for smoother rolling, while outdoor casters should have some shock absorption.
Also, different kinds of operating environments such as dust, high humidity, water, steam, corrosive, high temperature or extremely cold, etc., require special wheel materials, bearing types, or finish options.
Wheel material options: polyurethane, rubber ( TPR or mold-on rubber), polyolefin, phenolic, plastic, steel. Each kind of wheel material is fit for different applications.
Heavy duty polyurethane casters – Highest weight capacity. Non-marking and chemical resistant. A cushioned ride to protect loads and floors.
Heavy duty rubber Casters – Rolls easily on tile, linoleum, brick, and carpet.
Heavy duty mold-on rubber casters – offer quiet movement, low initial roll effort, and good floor protection.
Heavy duty polyolefin casters – withstand harsh indoor and outdoor use.
Heavy duty plastic casters – high strength, non-marring, and resistant to impacts, oils, and acids.
Heavy duty phenolic casters – made up of phenolic resin material mixed with macerated canvas and molded under high temperature.
Heavy duty steel wheels – provide incredibly high load capacities than other casters and should be used where flooring protection is not a concern (unfinished concrete).
Heavy duty pneumatic casters – the foam or air-filled wheels are designed for a cushioned ride and shock absorption when moving the sensitive materials.
Floor protection: Floor protection is also one crucial factor to consider when selecting casters. As the lowest cost caster may provide the capacity needed but maybe scratch the
floor. Like steel wheels have higher capacity but may damage some concrete or hardwood floors. Rubber wheels may offer a lower load rating but have more floor protection.
Heavy duty casters usually come in large wheel sizes, as the larger the wheel diameter, the heavier loads it can withstand.
For rolling over rough, uneven surface or thresholds, the heavy duty casters with greater diameter wheel roll much easier than smaller wheel sizes, such as light-duty casters and medium-duty casters.
Heavy duty caster with a large diameter wheel covers more ground area and could distribute weights efficiently.
So generally speaking, for uneven or sloped surfaces, heavy duty large caster wheels perform better than smaller ones.
Heavy duty casters are engineered for the heavier casters applications, well suited for heavy equipment, such as heavy duty dollies, super heavy duty workbench, hand trucks, tables, toolbox, movable racks, utility trucks, dollies, trollies, and other heavy duty material handling applications.
Below are typical applications of heavy duty caster wheel:
Heavy duty wheels for trolley
Heavy duty wheels for carts
Heavy duty wheels for gates
Heavy duty wheels for dolly
Heavy duty wheels for workbench
Heavy duty wheels for furniture
Heavy duty wheels for table
Heavy duty casters for office chairs
Heavy duty wheels for toolbox
These are but a few of the applications of heavy duty casters in various industries; the list is almost endless.
The length is 114mm / 4.49 inch, and width 100mm/ 3.93 inch, while the bolt pattern size is 84 *71mm / 3.31*2.8 inch. The mounting plate comes with four drilled holes with allowing for 0.4-inch diameter screws. M10 screws will be suitable for these mounting holes.
Heavy duty casters, as the name says, are used for moving heavy loads under extreme environment.
There are heavy duty casters for 1000 lbs, heavy duty casters for 2000 lbs, heavy duty industrial casters for 3000 lbs, even up to 20,000 lbs (super heavy duty casters).
We highly recommend always doubling the workload if you would like to attach casters for any project that can carry up. That means the load capacity is 1000 lbs; you should get these that can carry about 2000 or 3000 lbs because not all casters of the unit will withstand the total weight capacity at the same time.
Heavy duty wheels are available in the following sizes: 4 inch, 5 inch, 6 inch, 8 inch, 10 inch, and 12 inch. And super heavy duty casters could be made with 16 inch or 18 inch.
So you must have a question, what size heavy duty casters do I need?
This is also an important question, and there is no standard or quick formula for this. But with the following tips could help you to find the ideal size for your material handling application.
If you want a lower height but higher weight capacities, need heavy-duty low-profile casters.
This type of caster is ideal for heavy load application, which requires a low clearance height. Heavy duty low profile caster is great for pianos, copiers, refrigerators, and other heavy machines which do not need frequent movement.
Need smooth and easy rolling, large-diameter wheels are the best choice.
The larger the diameter wheel, the easier it will roll on the rough surfaces. Large diameter wheels will move over the bumps or cracks more quickly and easily than smaller wheels.
Super heavy duty capacity, consider heavy duty casters with twin wheels.
Heavy duty twin wheel casters have dual wheels that minimize the overall height and maximize heavy load capacity. As dual-wheel casters cover more ground, they swivel more easily and provide more stability than single wheels.
