If you don’t think of casters as a vital component in the overall scheme of materials handling, think again. Whether it’s a manufacturing facility or warehouse, everything rolls, said Mike Twitty, sales engineer for RWM Casters (Booth 5021).

The company is showcasing its heavy duty, high quality casters, just one of the 60,000 products it offers.

Designed to handle loads from 15,000 pounds and up, the majority of RWM’s heavy-duty caster applications are found in manufacturing environments, including automotive and aerospace. But with such a large inventory of components, the company can customize a solution and assemble exactly what the customer needs–even if that means realizing improvements like noise reduction or improved ergonomics.
