The perfect match
Wheels put everything in motion. They are made of different materials, manufactured in various designs and have different characteristics.
The composition of the tyre, the various hubs and rims as well as the bearings give the wheels different properties. Because of the great diversity, the wheels have different load capacities, roll resistances and operational characteristics (qualities). The choice of the type of wheel depends on the application or the requirements of the system. An important factor is the surface on which the wheel is rolling. As a rule, hard wheel materials can have a heavier load than soft.
However, they have the disadvantage that they easily transmit shock load to the equipment, which
occurs when floors have bumps or are uneven. Another important criterion in the choice of the wheel is the surface. This is a determining factor for the choice of the tire and the materials of the wheel. In addition, the environmental influences must also be taken into consideration.
