Innovate: Custom Length Stems

Custom Stem Lengths


While stems are often an afterthought when creating caster specs, the right stem can make a huge difference in the performance of a caster. Not only do we make a complete range of stems including round, square, threaded, modular and metric stems, but we can also produce casters with custom stem lengths.

7003 Series: S7033-1-8X13.5HN-PH-RB-SLB

We recently completed the project you see pictured here. It’s a 7003 Series caster with a 3-1/4” X 2” phenolic wheel and a side lock brake. What makes this caster so unique is the 13-1/2” custom-length threaded stem that we were able to incorporate.

Most often, custom-length stems are used to adjust and level the overall height of equipment. Good examples are conveyors in food processing or pharmaceutical environments that need to match the height of equipment. Custom stem heights can also be necessary when equipment is being used on floors that slope or are uneven.

We regularly produce stems of all types in custom lengths and configurations.

With our in-house design and engineering team, we can help you develop the perfect specs, including stem length, to match your requirements and then produce that caster in our integrated manufacturing facility. We can help you make sure that casters are perfectly matched to your needs.
