Skate wheels, or conveyor wheels, are primarily used with conveyor rollers in warehousing and distribution industries. They attach to roller tubes and, when the wheels rotate, enable objects to move along smoothly. Skate wheels provide movement to gravity roller conveyors whilst supporting various loads. They can also be used to guide materials on their journey along a conveyor.
Types of Skate Wheels
Skate wheels come in either plastic or metal and can be found with or without rubber tyres. The type of wheel depends on the application it is required for. Always consider maximum load ratings when buying wheels and consider weight distribution across multiple wheels within your application.
