The series features Hamilton’s forged steel caster construction and HPI® swivel technology. HPI® was developed years ago in response to an AGV application and outperforms conventional CNC-machined ball raceways, kingpinless and unit load bearing swivel constructions.

The Hamilton engineers then hand-picked two of our polyurethane treads—DuraGlide-AGV and Ergo-Glide-XT-AGV—for their easy rolling, quiet operation and overall stellar durability. The DuraGlide-AGV wheel is our “goto” choice for the majority of AGV applications. Engineers formulated DuraGlide to run much cooler than most polyurethanes resulting in an excellent wheel for continuous duty applications. Select Ergo-Glide-XT-AGV to repel foreign objects/debris (FOD) and for a softer ride.

For added durability, the wheel cores of the 3”, 4” and 5” wide wheels were upgraded from cast iron to forged steel. The forged steel cores feature larger hubs to accommodate larger size and number of precision ball bearings to significantly increase the bearing life. Our engineers then designed press-fit top hat spanner bushings to eliminate axial play and reduce noise. Finally engineers specified more robust wheel axles. The end result is a caster & wheel series designed to stand up to non-stop punishment and years of trouble-free performance.

Three important features:

  • New AGV caster & wheels series designed for non-stop punishment and trouble-free performance. Hamilton designing casters and wheels to operate on AGV’s for years and recent high demand for AGV’s triggered this new standard product offering designed for 24/7 operation.
  • The design stems from a compilation of lessons learned from past AGV applications. Customers provided feedback of “how’s and why’s” of premature wear. The series incorporates all “fixes” into this new bullet-proof AGV Series.
  • Load capacity range from 800 lbs. 15,400 lbs. Wheel diameters range from 4” to 16”. Offered in both single wheel and dual-wheel styles.
