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. 

Heavy or light-duty wheels – what are the differences?

The main difference between heavy duty wheels and light-duty wheels is the load capacity of the castor wheels. Light-duty wheels are used for light applications with a low load capacity and low transport speeds (up to 3km/h). Whereas, heavy-duty casters are designed to be used in tougher conditions due to their very stable construction and robust bearings. Twin wheel casters can help with even higher load capacities and guarantee easier manoeuvrability with small installation space.
