Heavy Duty AGV/Continuous Duty Casters
Capacity Range: 800 – 7000 lbs.
Here at Hamilton, we’ve been designing casters and wheels to operate on AGVs for years now. As volume has reached critical mass, we’re proud to present this pre-engineered caster series specifically designed for AGV’s and well suited for most other continuous duty applications.
This new series features Hamilton’s forged steel caster construction and HPI® swivel technology. HPI® was created years ago in response to an AGV application. HPI® outperforms conventional CNC-machined ball raceways, kingpinless and unit load bearing swivel constructions.
Hamilton engineers then hand-picked two of our 1” thick polyurethane treads—Ergo-Glide XT and DuraGlide—for their easy rolling, quiet operation and overall stellar performance.
For added durability and to accommodate larger precision ball bearings with extended bearing-life, the wheel cores of the 3”, 4” and 5” wide wheels in the series were upgraded from cast iron to forged steel. Our engineers then designed press-fit top hat spanner bushings to eliminate axial play and reduce noise.
The end result is a caster series designed to stand up to non-stop punishment and years of trouble-free performance. This series offers both single wheel (EHD, ES, EHS) and dual wheel (EHD2, EHS2) models; select dual wheel models to gain stability and higher capacities.
