Shop V-Groove & Flanged Track Wheels from Caster Headquarters
There are generally three common types of Track Wheels in the Caster and Wheel Industry. One style of Track Wheels are called V-Grooved Wheels which are used on Inverted Angle Iron Tracks and made from either Cast Iron, Forged Iron, Stainless Steel, or Phenolic wheel materials. The other style are known as Flanged Wheels also known as Flanged Track Wheels. Flanged Wheels or Rollers come in two styles, one is a Single Flanged Wheel and the other is a Double Flanged Wheel. These Wheels run on ASCE Rail or other types of special tracks. We offer our Flanged Track Wheels in either Iron or Heavy Duty Nylon. Caster Headquarters can also custom keyway the bore of the wheel with a special diameter keyway and add set screws if you need a special drive wheel depending on your application and wheel requirements.
V-Groove Track Wheels: Inverted angle iron and V-Grooved wheels combine to create effective in-plant production flow. Frequently used in tandem with flat faced wheels, the v-grooved wheels provide capacities of up to 8 tons, and are comprised of either cast iron, forged steel, stainless steel, or even phenolic (plastic). Standard offerings from Caster Headquarters & Hamilton feature many different wheel widths and capacities, numerous bearing types and sizes, and are also available less bearings. These wheels are stocked for industry-leading fast shipping. Should a size or configuration not be a standard, Caster Headquarters and Hamilton will custom design and build what you need.
Flanged Track Wheels: Many plants use steel rails for internal logistics. Not only do rails provide directional control for material flow through the plant, these heavy duty track wheels carry excessive loads so the rest of the floor is spared. Caster Headquarters extensive offering of flange track wheels provides four standard materials, including cast iron, ductile iron, forged steel, and nylon. Additionally, wheels are available with either one or two flanges. Should the standard line not quite fit a given application, Hamilton’s engineering team will design a special wheel to your precise dimensional and material specifications.
Track Wheels: Industrial track wheels have two industry standard forms – they run on inverted angle iron termed “V-Grooved” or they run on steel rails termed “flanged”. In either case, a wide variety of wheel sizes, materials, bearing types and associated capacities assure a fit for most applications. When the track is unique or a unique size wheel is required, Caster Headquarters can design and make special wheels to fit virtually any industrial application.
