Casters vs Wheels – are they the same?
The difference between a wheel and a caster lies within the structure. A wheel consists of tread or a press-on band, a rim and a wheel bearing. If the wheels were to have a bracket attached to it, it would be called a caster. There are two type of brackets that can be used on a wheel to create a caster, one type is a swivel caster and the other is a fixed caster. These two caster types differ in mobility. Fixed casters can only move in a straight-line either forwards or backwards, on the other hand, swivel casters can move in any direction as the swivel head can move 360° around the vertical axel.
