RWM is the originator and market leader in kingpinless casters. Originally designed and released by RWM in 1981 the kingpinless caster has revolutionized the caster industry and is the recognized best solution for the most demanding situations.
Our patented offset precision-machined raceway exerts radial force evenly where there is full contact between the ball bearing and the raceway. RWM’s unique design adds more mass at key points. This, plus more thorough heat treatment, provides additional strength and combats brinelling into the core material.
