Precision Mobility for Reduced Rolling Resistance and Noise Reduction

Aubin Industries is actively involved in many facets of the automotive industry. We are currently working with multiple automotive plants and have been for many years. The most common complaint from automotive plants regarding casters and wheels that we have corrected or at the least improved is trying to achieve noise reduction, reliability, and ease of movement in a simultaneous fashion. Typically, automotive plants not utilizing the Aubin patented systems apply a solution to one issue creating other issues to worsen. With the patented Swivel-EAZ® wheel, and now the patented Swivel-EAZ® PRO casters, these issues can be easily solved. By simply retrofitting the Swivel-EAZ® wheel into current useful casters, you will immediately experience a 35-50% reduction in rolling resistance. By retrofitting or redesigning current carts with the Swivel-EAZ® PRO casters you will experience a 70-80% reduction in rolling resistance when compared to other standard swivel casters. These reductions in rolling resistance are from customer tested real world industry applications. Also, the Swivel-EAZ® PRO caster because of its unique design characteristics eliminates side kick, allows for resistance free maneuverability, unlimited caster placement and unlimited quantity of casters on individual carts to assist with load distribution. 

While our number one wheel recommendation for automotive is the Swivel-EAZ® wheel, we also offer Half-Round® wheels. Our Half-Round® wheels come in a variety of the highest quality urethane compounds and since Aubin Industries created the design in 1995, they have become highly utilized in the automotive industry. Aubin also created the Swivel-EAZ® PRO Elite, a light duty version of the patented Swivel-EAZ® PRO caster line. The Swivel-EAZ® PRO Elite comes with all the ergonomic benefits of the Swivel-EAZ® PRO caster system, they will be much lower in cost and are still manufactured in the USA! 

 Automotive is not just about casters and wheels for carts. The automotive industry utilizes specialty wheels for their conveyor systems also. Many automotive companies and fabricators have been working with Aubin for design, development, and manufacturing expertise, for custom high-quality conveyor wheels, to improve the performance and longevity of their systems.    

When partnering with Aubin Industries and utilizing the Swivel-EAZ® line of wheels, the Swivel-EAZ® PRO caster system, or any of our other 2500 custom wheels, it is our goal to assist you in meeting and exceeding your requirements in all areas for improving efficiency, and increasing longevity through design and quality.
