The universal wheel is the so-called movable caster, and its structure allows horizontal 360 degree rotation. Casters are a collective term, including movable casters and fixed casters. The fixed casters have no rotating structure and cannot rotate horizontally but can only rotate vertically. These two kinds of casters are generally used in combination. For example, the structure of a trolley has two fixed wheels at the front, and two movable universal wheels at the rear, which are close to the push armrest.

Universal wheels refer to the brackets installed on caster wheels that can rotate horizontally 360 degrees in dynamic or static load.

There are many kinds of materials for manufacturing universal wheels. Common materials are: nylon, polyurethane, rubber, cast iron and other materials. Widely used in mines, mechanical equipment, electronic equipment, medical equipment, engineering decoration, textiles, printing and dyeing, furniture, logistics equipment, storage, turnover vehicles, chassis, cabinets, equipment, electromechanical, dust-free workshops, production lines, large supermarkets, etc. Industries and various fields.

According to their different uses, bearings are divided into iron core, aluminum core, and plastic core, with sizes ranging from 1 inch to 8 inches. Among them, the iron core and aluminum core are generally heavy-duty load-bearing wheels, which are often equipped with brakes when used.

This is a traditional circle wheel with many rollers, the roller plate is in a plane parallel to the wheel rotation axis wheel at a 45° rotation axis. The universal wheel is able to move in any direction that uses the standard shape of the chassis.
