RWM Casters is proud to be known as the original inventor of Kingpinless™ Casters, the most emulated casters in the industry today. Our heavy duty Kingpinless™ Casters are the recognized best solution for demanding industrial caster and wheel applications.
In addition to our Kingpinless™ caster design, several of our new products have become industry standards by which all others are measured. RWM Casters new product innovations offer major improvements in performance and will maximize value for your company, such as our improvedurethane wheel compounds that withstand the new ergonomic, quality and value issues being demanded for the aerospace caster, automotive caster, tire manufacturing and heavy-duty industrial material handling markets.
For over 75 years, RWM Casters has been committed to providing the highest quality industrial caster wheel and non-powered material handling products, at competitive pricing with the shortest lead times in the industry. In addition to our standard product line, we offer custom casters, wheel design and solutions to meet your specific caster requirements.
As a leading domestic manufacturer of industrial casters as well as being the originator and market leader in kingpinless casters, RWM Casters primary mission is to continue developing and manufacturing high value casters, wheels and material handling products that fully satisfy our worldwide customer's needs. Our total commitment to this mission is evident from our reputation for combining superior engineering experience and talent with modern manufacturing techniques, an emphasis on high quality products and comprehensive customer service.
In 1988, three of the nation's leading caster and wheel companies, Rapistan, WilMat and Midwest, merged to become RWM Casters Co. We trace our roots back to 1935 and have been a proud member of Staunton Capital since 1992. Located in Gastonia, North Carolina, approximately 20 miles west of Charlotte, we pride ourselves on being one of the largest domestic manufacturers of heavy duty industrial caster and wheel products. You'll notice that all our Kingpinless™ casters are branded as made with care in the U.S.A right here at our Gastonia NC production facility.
From the efficient performance of the light and medium duty casters to the brute strength of the big single and dual wheel kingpinless casters, the emphasis at RWM is on a perfect match to meet the task at hand. Patented kingpinless swivel sections shoulder the stresses of heavy loads... a wide range of top plate options to retrofit almost any caster mounting plate configuration.. Strong, flexible, super tight neoprene swivel seals to keep moisture and debris away from the swivel sections assuring longevity and performance.. Patented offset raceway construction to transfer forces to areas of maximum strength of the swivel section overcoming the inherent weakness of clone kingpinless designs.. a tremendous range of wheel composition and construction to provide maximum performance and rollability while shrugging off every environmental threat from rough floors and damaging debris to caustic chemicals and temperature extremes.. A variety of zinc plating to resist corrosion.. Stainless steel casters for longer life in caustic environments.. high performance wheel brakes and swivel locks leading the way in innovation for precise tooling applications and caster needs.... the list just keeps going!
At RWM the engineering is complex, but the goal is simple: to build unsurpassed performance, unmatched durability, unequaled longevity and unerring applicability... into every caster, wheel and material handling product we ship!
