Success-Story - LHF-ALBS
Develops and produces innovative components, functions and systems aiming to make driving safer and more comfortable. This includes electronic brake control systems such as ABS und ESP.
The ChallengeCarts are used for internal transport. Dirt sticks to the treads causing tracks in the factory. When travelling over thresholds, individual wheels may briefly lose contact with the floor. Once they regain contact with the floor, they pass off the dirt, forming marks on the floor (see picture).
One of the supplier’s customers complained about the marks at their factory. The company requested a solution for the problem from Blickle.
Spring-loaded casters are able to compensate for unevenness in the floor, ensuring permanent contact between the casters and the floor. This prevents marks from forming after crossing thresholds.
Furthermore, the use of wheels with Besthane Soft treads has optimized starting and rolling resistance.
Tests with the new casters have been very successful. The factory would like to retrofit several thousand carts to the spring-loaded ALBS casters.
