First of all, for the benefit of the layman who is still initiating himself on how industrial processes work and investigating what processes, tools and implements, machinery or hand-held and manually operated devices, may be required for his design and manufacturing intentions, it is necessary to briefly point out what a caster is. Then we can proceed towards what Heavy Duty Casters are being used for these days.
These heavy duty casters are now no longer stationary; they are utilized on wheels too, in accordance with the industrial processes being carried out. This is a coincidence of sorts because many of the creations emanating from these design and manufacturing processes are heavily mobile and must be powered forward and upwards on wheels. Another way of putting it then; a caster is also utilized as a mold.
On the large, industrial scale, this mold could be similar in physical appearance to the everyday bath that you are using in your home. And then again, huge industrial baths are, in fact, being used to carry out protective coating solutions applications. Both the shape of the intended cast and the protective coat applied to it must be absolutely precise. This not only allows for mobile crafts to operate optimally, it also keeps its users, and passengers, safe.
So, to that end, one of the largest crafts being built from such heavy duty casters is that of the jumbo sized airplanes that many of us are traveling in on a regular basis. Mobile crafts have grown even bigger in size, given what is envisioned by its pioneering entrepreneurs and engineers. Think military and long range use and outer space missions and you start getting the bigger picture as to what heavy duty casters are being used for today.
