Success-Story - LPA-TPO
Carts for goods delivery on wooden floors
Manufactures containers, pallets and component holders made of plastic.
The ChallengeThe company produces several hundreds of thousands of trolleys and the corresponding plastic stacking boxes for a large clothing chain. The re-ordered goods are delivered to the stores on the carts. At under 110 lbs, the load on the cart is minimal. As a result, light duty casters can be implemented without any problems.
Since the stores primarily have wooden floors, not all types of treads can be used.
Thermoplastic rubber elastomer wheels suit the requirements of the carts, as they are characterized by high operational comfort, low-noise operation and low rolling and swivel resistance. However, with wooden floors, there is a risk of staining. This is why oil-free rubber elastomer wheels were chosen – TPO wheels eliminate this risk. The implemented TPO wheels feature: a diameter of 3 inches, provide the required load capacity, are easy to maneuver, travel over small thresholds unhindered, and eliminate the risk of capsizing.
The customer is very satisfied with the recommended wheels and has purchased over 350,000 units.
