Hickory Hardware has released its Faultless Auto-Align Caster. Suitable for a wide range of cart applications, including smaller automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and light-duty cart equipment used in warehousing, the Auto-Align Caster uses a springlocking pin that, when engaged, keeps the caster rigid and tracking in a straight line. When sufficient side-load forces are applied, such as from an AGV's directional system, the caster disengages the spring-locking pin and swivels in either direction up to a radius of 180 degrees.
The Auto-Align Caster is sturdy, reliable, and safe, according to the manufacturer. It is built with its compact locking mechanism and spring plunger underneath the caster's trailing side to keep the parts from projecting outward beyond the caster's swivel radius. Streamlined and compact, the Auto-Align Caster assembly is made of non-metallic 304 stainless steel and is fully rated for wash-down applications. The caster's simple design and minimum number of components also promote cleanliness.
