Unlock the Advantages of Steel Wheels With RWM Casters

Back To Blog

Steel wheels are an ideal choice when you want a wheel that’s strong, durable, and versatile. Compared to other materials, steel wheels can support heavier loads, are optimized for shock loading, offer exceptional hardness, and are easy to weld. At RWM, our engineers have developed steel wheels that deliver superior performance and remarkable longevity under the most extreme operational conditions.

The Benefits of Using Steel Wheels

Your business represents a considerable investment of resources that work together to help you achieve your goals. From the ground up, it’s essential to use the highest quality components in order to achieve the superior performance, reliability, and results you aim to reach. That begins with your wheels, and there’s no better foundation than steel wheels beneath your carts, hand trucks, equipment, etc.

Steel wheels offer superior load-bearing capacity that far exceeds aluminum and other options. They also provide impressive resistance to wear and tear. Whether rolling over concrete, tile, metal, carpet, or other surface, steel wheels are suitable for a broad range of operational environments, including heavy-duty applications within manufacturing and industrial environments.

Further, steel wheels are antimicrobial, stable, and offer effective corrosion resistance. This makes them incredibly versatile for a wide range of uses and conditions.

What's the difference between zinc-plating and stainless steel?

Zinc-plated casters offer reliable corrosion resistance, but this can wear away over time making the wheel susceptible to corrosion when exposed to water, chemicals, etc. Conversely, stainless steel casters are manufactured using steel alloy with a chromium content of 10.5% or more. With exposure to oxygen, this creates a durable protective layer that won’t wear away.

What is a key advantage of using Kingpinless casters?

Our Kingpinless casters do not allow water or chemicals to gain entry to the raceway. This ensures smooth operation, reduces maintenance, and protects the bearings from corrosion and other damage. Further, the design incorporates high-strength ball bearings, which improves rotation, supports heavy loads, and improves ergonomics.

How does RWM help me customize my casters and wheels?

There are hundreds of factors to consider before you place an order for your business. Our sales teams will thoroughly assess your needs and will make recommendations based on your business, operational environment, and other factors.
