The Different Types of Castors and Wheels

Caster wheels are usually categorized according to the direction that the fork or yoke enables. In general, there are two main types of caster wheels:

Rigid Caster Wheels

The basic type of caster wheels, a rigid or fixed caster is a wheel attached to a stationary fork, which offers a fixed orientation as it is attached to the vehicular body. An example of this are the back wheels of grocery shopping carts, enabling parallel movement in a straight direction.

Swivel Caster Wheels

Like the rigid caster wheel, a swivel caster is a fork with a mounted wheel, but it comes with an extra swivel joint attached to the fork, effectively allowing 360-degree rotation. This means that the vehicular body that the swivel caster wheels are mounted to can turn and change direction without changing having to change orientation. The front wheels of a shopping cart usually have swivel caster wheels, which often have a turning radius commonly fit for the grocery aisles.

There are other types of casters, which are often a variation of either the rigid caster or swivel caster wheel.

Heavy Duty Caster Wheels

Also referred to as industrial casters, these are castors and wheels built to withstand and carry heavier loads of up to 30,000 lbs and can be available in either of the two main types of casters, rigid or swivel. Heavy duty casters will often feature harder wheel materials, larger wheel diameters, and a bolted flat plate on top to provide sturdier locking and security to handle the weight on the vehicle. Among other examples, material handling equipment, dolly carts, assembly turntables, and heavy-duty storage racks are a few applications wherein you’ll see industrial caster wheels.
