Wheels and Casters

We are the US distributor for Raeder Vogel polyurethane wheels and casters.

Newco Industrial Services is proud to be the United States distributor for Raeder Vogel wheels and casters. Since 1946, Raeder Vogel has been manufacturing high-quality wheel materials for a variety of applications. As the distributor, we can offer our customers a wide range of wheel treads and industrial casters for in-plant transportation. Raeder Vogel’s wheels are non-marking, have low starting and rolling resistances, and good chemical resistance to mineral oils and greases as well as various solvents, with speeds up to 16 km/h (6km/h standard) and load capacities up to 25,000 kg. Thanks to their resistance to various environmental effects, they are used for machines and devices of all kinds, as well as for work platforms, transport trolleys, assembly trolleys, storage trolleys, and container wagons.

Background

Background: For many years Newco Industrial Services has supplied, manufactured, and redesigned wheels used in automotive manufacturing carriers, elevators, drive wheels, and pre-treatment shuttle systems. These applications push the cover formulas and wheel designs to their limits and when they fail it is costly for the vehicle manufacturers. Over time, Raeder Vogel wheels have proven to be the most durable and reliable wheels in the world. So, in 2018 NIS became the US distributor for Raeder Vogel wheels, casters, and press-on bands. Raeder Vogel’s Vulkollan is the only Vulkollan formula to have received a best formula award from the chemical supplier Bayer. Couple this formula with the Raeder Vogel proprietary bonding process and you have the best wheel in the world.

Since 1946, Raeder Vogel has been supplying polyurethane wheels to all industries around the world. Decades of experience ensures customers that they have a trusted partner that provides world class solutions to difficult applications.

Bonding, formula and experience make RV unique

The innovative bonding system for the highest demands

Our wheels and rollers are exposed to increasingly high stress levels. Use in continuous operation at speeds of over 22 km/h with high acceleration, high ambient temperatures, and extremely dynamic ultimate loads, places considerable demand on our products. In response to these conditions, we developed our new RV-COMPOUND® bonding system to exploit the full potential of our tread materials.

RV-COMPOUND® has a high temperature resistance beyond the melting point in a wide range of different wheel treads, so it extends the load-bearing reserves for existing wheel designs and enables higher nominal loads for new designs with adapted configurations. It therefore considerably extends the lifespan of our products. Furthermore, no solvents are used in processing the bonding system, thus ensuring a considerable improvement in environmental protection as well as reduced exposure for our employees. RV-COMPOUND® is used for the production of all of our VULKOLLAN® and polyurethane wheels and is processed automatically using specially designed systems.

Wheels by Raeder-Vogel

Drive, load, and guiding wheels

We provide you with drive, load, and guiding wheels, as well as the highest quality and durability for almost every industry and a wide range of applications.

Drive wheels

Drive wheels have a fixed connection between the wheel and axle and thus ensure the required transmission from the engine to the ground and of course can be accelerated and braked. This means that you are free to decide which type of connection you would like to use. For example, you can choose from borings, grooves, and recesses for clamping kits.

Due to their structure and function, drive wheels are generally not built on casters.

Load wheels

Load wheels are predominantly used for bearing loads. Due to their continuous connection between the wheel and axle, they also turn and, in contrast to drive wheels, can neither be braked nor accelerated. We can decide on the bearing to be used with the individual customer. In addition to the most frequently used ball bearings, we also offer you sliding bearing arrangements and roller bearings as well as customer-specific special solutions. It is a good idea to build these on casters.

Guiding wheels

Guiding wheels are used in cable guide rollers and side guide rollers. For example, these wheels are used to guide cables or entire machines, or to absorb shocks ensure a nearly continuous connection between the wheel and axle.

Press on Bands

We produce one of the largest ranges of VULKOLLAN® and PEVOPUR® tires. Most of the standard metric and inch dimensions are in stock or can be supplied within a short period of time.

Cylindrical steel band – tires are produced as standard products with diameters ranging from 100 mm to 920 mm and load capacities up to more than 10 t.
In order to ensure a better pressing on of the steel band tires the inner ring is turned out and produced with slightly smaller dimensions than the specified ones for rims with fit h11.

Casters

Swivel and fixed casters

At Newco USA, we offer you an extensive range of institutional, industrial, and heavy-duty casters in the form of swivel and fixed casters for a wide range of different industrial applications. Our products are known for their excellent workmanship, high quality, and long lifespans.

Casters

Casters are made up of a wheel, housing and axle material, and are used to make equipment or transportation systems mobile. The castor is usually attached either via a plate, a hole fitting, or a stem fitting. As passive components, they are generally not directly driven.

In the design of casters, we distinguish between fixed casters and swivel casters.

Fixed casters and swivel casters

Fixed casters are connected to the device or transportation system via a rigid fastener and therefore cannot swivel. Consequently, they only operate in linear motion.

Swivel casters have a fastener that can rotate in addition to moving in a linear direction. Swivel casters can also be equipped with a lock.

You can lock the wheel motion using wheel locks. Directional locks, on the other hand, lock the swiveling movement of the swivel castor in one or a few defined directions. Our ALLSTOP locks, lock both the wheel and the swiveling movement of a castor.

Institutional Wheels & Casters

We offer an extensive range of institutional wheels and institutional castors for in-plant transportation. Our use of high-quality materials and components ensures a long lifespan for our wheels and castors. Different fastening options ensure flexible installation.

Products
VULKOLLAN® (93° Shore A)/VULKOLLAN® hydrolysis

VULKOLLAN® (93° Shore A)/VULKOLLAN® hydrolysis stabilized VULKOLLAN®1 is a highly elastic, cross-linked polyurethane elastomer based on Desmodur® 15 with tear propagation resistance, the highest modulus of elasticity of all elastomers, high mechanical wear resistance as well as high impact resilience and low compression set. As a result, VULKOLLAN® is the preferred choice for use in drive wheels and load wheels in industrial trucks, materials handling and mechanical engineering. For applications in tropical environments, we recommend VULKOLLAN® hydrolysis-stabilized.


  • Long service life
  • High load capacities
  • High speed
  • High impact resilience

PEVODYN®

PEVODYN® is a new high-quality polyurethane elastomer we developed, which offers a significantly reduced starting and rolling resistance as well as high dynamic load capacity. The material is particularly suitable for intra-logistic applications. Thanks to its hydrolysis resistance, PEVODYN® is also perfectly suited for use in tropical climates.

  • Long service life
  • High load capacities
  • High speeds
  • High energy efficiency

PEVOPUR®

PEVOPUR® is a high-quality polyurethane elastomer which offers good dynamic load capacity, high elasticity, good mechanical wear resistance and good compressive set quality. PEVOPUR® is also significantly more resilient than rubber. Consequently, the material is particularly suitable for applications with lower requirements and is ideally suited for use in tropical climates.

  • Medium load capacities
  • Medium speeds
