The performance of a castor or wheel depends heavily on the optimum fitting. The type of fitting required is determined by the design of the equipment to which the castors are to be attached. Standard fittings include screw-on plates, and solid plugs and screws, for example.
For special purposes, we also offer expander tube fittings and fitting elements with integrated locking systems for central locking mechanisms. Whatever type of fitting is used, care must be taken during installation to make sure that the castor is flush with the equipment. The maximum load capacity of the castor can only be guaranteed if the equipment is resting fully on the outer ball cover.
Different fittings are used depending on the equipment and type of use. For example, a plate fitting is used if the transport equipment has a flat component at the point where the castor is to be mounted. In the case of the bolt hole fitting, a screw or other connecting element is inserted through the central axis of the swivel head. Another option is the socket for a bolt. This is where a bolt is inserted into a tube. This type of fitting is used exclusively with swivel castors, however, and is not suitable for fixed castors.
