With so many high-tech, high-speed, and—dare we say it—"sexy" types of material handling equipment around these days, it might seem the lowly caster wouldn't merit much attention. Not so, according to Hamilton Caster, which designs and manufactures a wide variety of casters, wheels, carts, and trailers that keep things rolling in the warehouse and elsewhere. The company's blog, aptly named "The Revolution," shows that casters, which are often tucked away under or inside carts, conveyors, and other equipment, can be surprisingly interesting.
One blog entry, "Even the Statue of Liberty Runs on Hamilton Casters," tells how the longtime food and souvenir concessioner on the island where Lady Liberty stands has relied on the company's casters and powered carts for half a century. Recently, Hamilton replaced casters that had been in service there for 50 years.
Another, especially timely post, "11 Ways Hamilton Powers Football Season," explains that Hamilton casters can be found under the Sunday Night Football mobile broadcast desk and in the Arizona Cardinals' new scoreboard, and that they helped to carry the Lombardi Trophy onto the field after this year's Super Bowl.
