Application of stem mounted castors
Stem mounted castors are applied when there is a limited space to mount the castor to appliances or equipment. Stem mounted castors are often equipped with a threaded stem, so you can easily attach them. Stem castors provide you with good manoeuvrability as they are predominantly swivel castors which easily. On the other hand, stem mounted castors are not suitable for applications where a high load capacity is required.
Stem mount castors are often used as furniture castors, medical castors, scaffolding, toolboxes, carts, dollies, suitcases and more.
Different types of stem mounts
There are several types of stem mounted castors. The best type of stem mount depends on the requirements for your industry. Each stem has its own benefits or mounting type that makes it most suitable for your equipment and appliances.
Stem castors with threaded stem
The most common type of stem. The threaded stem can easily be attached to your equipment or appliances. These type of castors come in a wide variety of sizes, materials and load capacity.
Grip ring stems
These castors have a small ring that keeps the stem within the mounting holes. These castors are most commonly used on lightweight appliances such as mop buckets, office chairs or trolleys.
Square stem castors
Square stem castors are used to fit into a square tube. In most cases, the stem is held in place with a cotter pin. These castors are used only when the castors need to be fitted into a square mounting hole, such as shelving racks and furniture.
Expanding stem castors
Expanding stem castors fit into a round or square tube. By inserting these stem castors, the adapter is expanded so it fits tightly within a hollow space, like a tube or a chair leg.
Hollow kingpin castors
Hollow kingpin castors do not have a stem, but are equipped with an opening for a bolt to be inserted into. This stem is most commonly used when you can’t find the right type or size of the stem that is needed.
