JUNG - Machine Skates - Sets - Capacities: 6 to 160 tons
*** Skates with set load capacity up to 24 tons meet or exceed ANSI B30.1. Skates with set load capacity exceeding 24 tons cannot not be tested but have been built with even greater safety capacity.
3 Point Machine Skate system – How does it work?
Users unfamiliar with using a three point skate system will hesitate because using 4 skates is more intuitive. However, using a 3 point skate system is in most cases more stable than using 4 skates to transport a load.
If you are traveling over an uneven surface, your load will rock on 4 skates just like a 4-legged chair on uneven ground.
When a load rocks on skates that are not attached directly to it, the weight of the load is lifted off one skate and it slips out. This can cause obvious moving and safety problems.
Now, imagine a 3 legged chair or stool; when it is placed on uneven ground, the chair will not rock. The 3 legged stool will not lean or tip as long as the weight (Center of Gravity) is kept within the triangle created by the three legs.
Setting your load on three skates will have the same effect: the load can not rock. Its weight has been evenly distributed, pressing down onto the skates at all times and thus keeping the skates firmly in place.
Once your load is on three roller machine skates, you can travel over uneven surfaces and not worry about the skates slipping – even under pulling and tugging action.
The skates are outfitted with patented JUWAthan-plus wheels. The wheel material is baked in an oven over a long period for elasticity & extreme toughness for superior performance & durability over traditional polyurethane, composite or steel wheels. The wheels are non-floor damaging and non-floor marking. The wheels can be used on smooth & rough floors, on floors with cracks & dirt, inside & outside. The elastic wheels mold around obstacles and keep rolling whereby overcoming small obstacles easily by - No stop, up & over action required like with other wheels. The material spreads out intentionally for keeping low floor pressure. The wheels have low break out & low rolling resistance with low push-pull force and low manpower requirements. The wheels are shock absorbent and reliable under toughest working conditions.
