The client

... is an international pioneer in the aerospace industry. They are a leader in designing, manufacturing and delivering aerospace products, services and solutions to customers on a global scale. The company has aircraft and helicopter fi nal assembly lines across Asia, Europe and the Americas, and has achieved a more than six-fold order book increase since 2000.

The challenge

In the assembly area of the company, special demands are placed on the logistics service providers. Therefore, the company was looking for a castor with foot protection for transporting the heavy and sensitive aircraft components, which in addition to its protective function can also remove soil pollution and small parts from the track. The low rolling resistance plays an important role in the requirement for manual handling.

Our solution

Blickle welded steel heavy duty four wheel castors LSD-GTH 302K-42-FS-922097 with foot guard

As the wheel is subjected to extremely high loads, a welded steel heavy duty fourwheeled castor with a heavy strong swivel head design was developed. The limited height thus ensures a stable bracket and the pressure on the ground is distributed over a larger area. In order to be able to offer a very low rolling resistance and a high level of floor preservation, cast wheels with a high quality polyurethane elastomer Blickle Extrathane® have been proposed. In addition, the roller is equipped with a foot guard. The polyurethane wiper which is mounted on the foot guard brushes aside smaller obstacles and therefore facilitates a smooth ride.

The result

The customer was not primarily concerned with cost savings, but they wanted to find the optimal product for their application. With the solution mentioned above and the reliable Blickle services, we were able to win the trust of the customer in a long term.
