Wanda kingpin-less design caster swivel section has only three components: a top plate with ball race, a yoke base (bottom race) with ball race and ball bearings. This design is similar to what one would find in a ball bearing. This design eliminates the kingpin and spreads the load our over a larger area. The swivel section design also provides a more easily swiveling industrial caster.
Since this design spreads the load out over a larger area, this swivel section can be used in higher speed caster applications when compared to the kingpin swivel section. The kingpinless swivel section also swivels more easily and requires less maintenance since there is no nut that needs to be retightened.
This swivel section design makes adjusting the swivel-ability of the caster very difficult once the caster has been assembled. This is because the entire swivel section must be taken apart for a “swivel restrictor” device to be inserted into the raceway. Also, once the caster swivel section raceways have worn, there is no way to adjust the swivel section to retighten.
