Colson Caster Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of standard and custom application caster and wheel products, has announced the availability of a new addition to its 4 Series Stainless Steel caster line. Colson’s complete 4 Series includes stainless caster forks, brakes and bearings designed for today’s most demanding manufacturing environments and material handling challenges. This new addition to the line, an all stainless precision wheel bearing, is also completely sealed for a longer life at peak performance levels.

“Our customers are always facing new application challenges in today’s increasingly demanding markets,” said Brian Crain, product manager for Colson. “This new stainless steel bearing is a result of the ongoing and result-driven partnership we share with them.”

Like all of Colson’s products, the new bearing was rigorously tested at its world-class engineering labs. The 4 Series Stainless Steel bearing withstands corrosive exposures and is completely sealed to keep grease and other debris out for jam-free operations. The polished stainless steel bearings can easily service even the toughest industrial applications and are maintenance free with no lubrication required. The sealed aspect of the precision ground ball bearing was designed and tested to ensure maximum rolling ease and quiet operation.

The new 4 Series stainless steel precision sealed bearings are shipping now for 2” wide wheels. A less expensive carbon steel bearing model is also available for standard applications. For pricing, and more information on the bearings or any other Colson product, call 800.643.5515 or visit
