Guidebook

We can help you find the right product.

Simply offering a product is not our idea of customer service.
We need to know and examine some technical data in order to find the right product for you.

We want to try and explain some of the most important technical data to you.

We would like to briefly introduce two important factors to you here.

The load capacity of the wheels or rollers

As a transport trolley may only have 3 wheels or rollers instead of 4 the total load-bearing capacity should always be calculated for only 3 wheels or rollers.

Formula:

T =

E + Z

n - 1


An example:

A transport trolley should be able to transport 800 kg. The net weight is 100 kg and four rollers are fitted.

Thus:

T =

Load capacity per roller

E =

100 kg

Z =

800 kg

N =

4


So the formula is as follows:

T =

100 + 800

4 – 1

T =

300 kg

 

So you need wheels or rollers with a dynamic load-bearing capacity of at least 300 kg.

Selecting the right running tread

There is a simple rule to guarantee the optimum running properties:

  • Hard floor = soft wheel
  • Soft floor = hard wheel


Of course this is only a guideline. We would be pleased to advise you on any technical questions regarding wheels and rollers.
See the guidebook for further information.
