Industrial Caster Customization

Here is China Fixed Wheel Factory talking about Industrial Caster Customization.

If you have any idea about China Lean Pipe Fixed Rubber Wheel, welcome to contact us and discuss.

Historically, industrial manufacturing has combined forging, casting, stamping, and welding processes. There have been no changes in the key components of the manufacturing process, and some have evolved into modern manufacturing technologies.

Forging and casting industry customization and key components of the wheel have not changed significantly over the past 50 years. Many manufactured products have the same size and shape in these processes. A significant change in the custom industrial caster part is the manufacture of a continuous casting machine rig, which is the body of a continuous casting machine. In the past, the standard components of the stampings for the manufacture of rigs, the swivel parts of the forgings or welded to each other. In the production, iron works to the design of the accessories, such as brakes or toe guards, and then the standard components are welded. The custom manufacturing of industrial casters has reached a new level and has completely changed the motives for custom manufacturing of industrial casters. The following three aspects require improvement in production: 1) increase strength; 2) improve quality; 3) shorten production The end product of time.

These improvements come from laser cutting and forming rigs that remove about 40% of the welds, dramatically changing the design/build process. Let's briefly discuss these three key improvements.

1. Increased strength - The custom-made legs in the production of heavy industrial casters are connected to the platform which is manufactured in a single flat blank. Blank "development" to accommodate the material that will be consumed when the legs are formed. The formation process uses a bending machine to move the leg in a 90-degree direction and the leg material of the platform moves. The legs in a welding process will be welded to the platform in a conventional manner. During the forming process, when completed, the bit error rate is 25%, which is lower than the soldered product, unless there is a part of the total major fault. The area of potential failure from the finished product is completely removed during the laser cutting/forming process.

2. Improved quality - when the parts are used in the stamping process, there is a clean material failure (about half of the thickness of the material), the rest of the material will "escape", leaving a margin with a variation of 0.03 In the range of inches. When a part is laser cut the edge quality and the hole (axle placement) can be kept at 0.002 inches. The remarkable effect of such precision is in the fact that with the shaft, instead of grinding to the size of the hole, the hole is cut off by the ideal candidate, significantly improving the quality of the final product.

3. Shorten the production cycle, if properly designed as part of the laser cutting/processing, this is the result of the process of cutting off the formation of the finished product. The reason for this is that essentially all of the components of the rig are integrated into the original laser blank, thus avoiding little or no additional soldering. Avoiding secondary processing will speed up the manufacturing process while controlling additional costs.
