What to Look for in an Industrial Rolling Cart

Posted by CAMM Metals on Oct 23, 2017 10:20:00 AM

One of the most difficult aspects of manufacturing is moving heavy and/or oddly shaped objects around. An industrial rolling cart is essential in manufacturing in order to transport objects with greater ease. It’s important to use a high quality rolling cart in order to transport your objects and ensure that they’re unharmed. Here are some factors to look for in a quality industrial rolling cart.

One of the most important aspects of an industrial rolling cart is that it has the proper capacity. If your cart is not large enough to fit the parts you are attempting to transport, it will not be useful. It should have the proper design and features necessary to hold and carry the objects that need to be transported.


Your industrial rolling cart should be very easy to move. A rolling cart should be able to move desired objects efficiently to carry out its function. For this reason, a good wheel design is essential to a rolling cart. Caster wheels are often used because they can freely rotate in multiple directions for ease of movement in all directions. In the case of delicate floors, you might consider rubber wheels, although they can hold less weight.

Strength and Durability

A good industrial rolling cart should be very strong, as it needs to hold the weight and stress of a full parts load under difficult conditions. Often times, these carts are made of stainless steel or other very durable materials. Not only are these materials strong, but they will resist corrosion, making them last for years.

Industry-Specific Features

There are certain features that will be necessary on carts transporting objects for specific industries. For example, industries that require sterile parts will need a feature to keep dust and dirt from penetrating the interior, such as a plastic covering. In cases where parts are in high demand, they might need to be fast-drying, meaning the cart should be designed to maximize open space for more air flow.

For parts that require protection and fast drying, a removable cover might be necessary. When producing consumable goods, the cart must prevent a collection of liquids to prevent contamination. It’s important that a rolling cart used for specific industries contains features that will properly accommodate certain needs and regulations.

Ease of Cleaning

An industrial rolling cart has to be cleaned regularly to meet certain industry-specific regulations concerning contamination. There should not be any hard-to-reach nooks and crannies that are difficult to clean, as contaminants can easily hide in them. A cart that is easy to clean is essential to prevent contamination of any transported objects.
