Our manufacturing capability is really opening doors for us with some very exciting projects currently in progress.
One such project is the provision of our Automotive Sprung Loaded Castors which are 100% made in the UK by us.
Our client has an existing application where the castors were failing due to increased load demand. Our UK design engineers redesigned, improved and strengthened the castors while managing to save 15 kg off the unit weight (which was another client requirement).
We are proud that every aspect of this project has been completed by Coldene. This achievement is especially important because it now means we have the ability to compete with our European rivals.
ISO Container Castors T24
Our heavy duty 24-tonne container castors have undergone a design review after client feedback reported that the old design was heavy and therefore difficult to manoeuvre into position and attach to the ISO container. We have therefore added a jockey wheel and arm to aid the movement and positioning of the castor.. Heavy lugging is now a thing of the past.
Our new polyurethane metering machine arrived 2 months ago and has now been fully commissioned and put into operation. Production has started on a number of key products including load rollers.
