WDS levelling foot castors enable in-situ adjustment

The levelling foot castors offered as part of the WDS Component Parts Ltd. range of castors and wheels for trolleys and mobile equipment are designed to allow vertical adjustment so that the supported equipment can be levelled. The range also includes light, medium and heavy-duty capacity models, so that virtually all requirements can be met from a single source.

The heavy-duty range adds mobility and practicality to large machine tools and other heavy duty workshop accessories which require accurate, totally level surfaces. The castors allow the machine tool to be positioned accurately after the initial delivery which makes installation far easier. Once in position, a die cast footpad with a vibration damping rubber pad is dropped to the floor, allowing the user to make finite adjustments to the levelling of the machine tool.

The levelling foot castors are available in a number of variants, including standard industrial types and stainless-steel options for hygienic and corrosive environments. For easy operation they can be fitted with foot pedals, stoppers or ratchets. Alternatively, they can be spanner adjustable, a design that discourages tampering and unauthorised resetting.

Overall, WDS’s comprehensive range of castors is wide and includes fixed, swivel and braked versions. In addition to these WDS also offer a comprehensive range of replacement trolley wheels and heavy-duty castors.

All WDS levelling foot castors are available in a number of sizes and with a choice of screw or plate mounting. The maximum load the larger sizes can carry is 1000kg.

Like all products offered by WDS, there is excellent customer service available. They can be ordered in any quantity by post, telephone or on-line. The telephone service includes a help line from which expert advice and assistance is available. The company website (www.wdsltd.co.uk), which hosts the on-line ordering, provides details of all products, sizes, versions and options, plus downloadable 2D and 3D cad files and technical specific.

The castors are competitively priced with next day delivery available on selected part numbers.
