Castors and Wheels for 2023

Welcome to the latest Merlin Industrial news and updates. The biggest news is the new castors and wheels website at 

Since 1994 castors have been a major product for Merlin Industrial and, with the new site, even easier to specify, find and budget.

A castor is a small, pivoting wheel mounted on a fork or a plate that is attached to the bottom of an object. Castors typically have a swivel mechanism that allows them to rotate 360 degrees, making it easy to change the direction of movement. Casters are commonly used on furniture, carts, and other mobile equipment.

Wheels, on the other hand, are circular components that rotate around an axle. They can be attached directly to the bottom of an object, or they can be mounted on a caster. Wheels are available in a variety of sizes, materials, and designs, depending on the application.

Both casters and wheels can be made from a variety of materials, including rubber, plastic, metal, and composite materials. The type of material used depends on the application and the specific requirements for the caster or wheel, such as load capacity, durability, and resistance to abrasion and chemical exposure.

Overall, castors and wheels are essential components for enabling the movement of objects, and they are used in a wide range of applications across industries such as manufacturing, transportation, warehousing, and retail.
