“V” GROOVE

“V” GROOVE

“V” GROOVE WHEELS MADE IN THE USA

“V” Groove wheels are a type of wheel with a mostly flat edge and smaller groove in the outside diameter. This inverted groove fits onto angle tracks for more secure movement on and off the floor in guided and tracked systems. Having the correct groove in your wheels to match your track helps to guarantee that the wheels are riding properly and not wearing in the wrong places so the wheels will last longer and give you better rollability. 

At Aubin Industries, Inc., we build our “V” Groove wheels with durable solid polyurethane and elastomer constructions in a wide range of sizes, including custom options. Our “V” Groove caster wheels are great fits where equipment longevity, and ease of use are priorities across industries.

THE ADVANTAGES OF OUR “V” GROOVE WHEELS

Using “V” Groove wheels leads to many benefits, smooth rollability and secure track riding. In addition to being manufactured in the USA, our “V” Groove caster wheels are:

  • Available with stainless steel bearings. Many environments, such as outdoor work areas and food processing plants, need equipment that can be washed down without rusting or breaking. We can create our “V” Groove wheels with stainless steel bearings to provide this functionality.
  • Precision-machined. With precisely built components, our “V” Groove wheels fit snugly onto your track to reduce vibration and or disconnection during rolling. Having the correct groove in your wheels to match your track helps to guarantee that the wheels are riding properly and not wearing in the wrong places so the wheels will last longer and give you better rollability.
