Calculate the load-bearing weight: In order to be able to calculate the required load capacity of various casters, it is necessary to know the weight of the transport equipment, the maximum load and the number of wheels and casters used. The required load capacity of a single wheel or caster is calculated as follows:



---T=The required weight of a single wheel or caster;

---E=The weight of the transportation equipment;

---Z=Maximum load;

---M=The number of single wheels and casters used;

---N=Safety factor (about 1.3-1.5).


Only by reasonably calculating the overall load requirements and scientifically selecting the appropriate size and quantity of casters, can casters serve us safely and for a long time.
