Your partner for wheels and casters for Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) and Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMT)

Vulkoprin designs and produces standard and customized wheels and castors that meets the most demanding single drive and omni drive systems.

 

The perfect combination of high elasticity and hardness in a large temperature range results in wheels with a low rolling resistance and high load capacity.

 

Today our wheels and castors are globally rolling in the AGV and SPMT applications of the major manufacturers as well as many niche players.

 

The Vulkollan® tread material is particularly suitable for use in AGVs. It offers the optimal mix of mechanical properties engineered for 24/7 demanding application guaranteeing:
• minimal rolling resistance
• good traction
• high dynamic load capacity
• high cut and tear propagation resistance
• high rebound resilience
• energy-efficient for improved power usage
• non marking
• good floor preservation
• debris rejecting
• maximum lifetime

 

Hydrolisis resistant formulations for hot and humid environments, corrosion protected wheelcentres and alternative hardnesses for more traction and higher load capacities are available.

 

Printhane-C™ is conductive Vulkollan® that meets the standards EN12527 thru’ EN12533. An ideal solution for applications with a known risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD). The black tread is nonmarking and shows the same level of mechanical values as standard Vulkollan.

 

The polyurethane tire wheels are fitted with precision ball bearings. The core is available in cast iron, steel or aluminum. Wheel diameters start from 40 mm up to 1100 mm, with load capacities exceeding 12 tons.
