Material handling and mobility issues affect numerous industries across the nation, but perhaps no industry is affected as heavily as aerospace. Building and repairing passenger planes and cargo jets is incredibly demanding due to heavy loads, weather, environmental challenges, and more. Caster Concepts’ engineering team solves these challenges with their shock absorbing aviation casters. The company is based in Albion, Michigan and works with some of the world’s biggest aviation companies to design, develop, and manufacture casters that not only resolve material handling and mobility issues, but also promote safety and productivity in the workplace. 

Modern Suspension Systems is a unique line of aviation and aerospace casters designed and developed by the team at Caster Concepts. This line includes a wide variety of caster styles and sizes, but the most popular option is the Air Cargo Weight Caster. These shock absorbing aviation casters are heavy duty and able to resist corrosion in virtually any environment. They offer a four-position swivel lock and each one can support up to 12,500 pounds. 

Other common shock absorbing aviation casters include the pneumatic wheel swivel caster and the heavy duty dual wheel with an integrated brake. The former offers a rubber wheel that is designed to absorb shock and provide unsurpassed performance even in wet environments, and it offers a maximum capacity of 7,500 pounds. The latter is a dual-wheel caster with polyurethane tread and an integrated foot brake that can reduce injuries in the production area. These casters can support loads of up to 50,000 pounds. 

Caster Concepts also offers an entire range of ground support equipment casters that absorb shock with pneumatic wheels. These casters are maintenance-free, so they never need to be greased or lubricated, and they come in both pneumatic and semi-pneumatic styles for the perfect balance of shock absorption and ease of use. They are also ergonomic, which means they can reduce the risk of injury by reducing the force exertion required to start movement or turn. 

Finally, Caster Concepts has even developed a line of casters specifically for use with engine and maintenance stands. These shock absorbing aviation casters offer pneumatic dual wheels and are ideal for indoor as well as outdoor use – even in wet environments. They support up to 7,200 pounds each and can also be installed on aircraft recovery dollies for even more flexibility.
