Whether it’s at the airport or in the production hall: special transport platforms are often needed to move extremely heavy loads. The correct underlying components are critical. Robust wheels and castors are necessary to get the “bulky stuff” moving. Blickle offers an extensive portfolio of heavy duty wheels and castors that can handle loads of up to 100 tonnes.
For logistics providers, for example, transporting heavy and bulky goods by air is an interesting business opportunity: the total freight volume at German airports alone has risen steadily in recent years. And there’s no end in sight. For example, according to a report by the news portal Airliners, the Cologne/Bonn Airport plans to almost double its freight volume by 2030. The goal is to increase the volume from 838,000 tonnes in 2017 to 1.5 million tonnes in 2030. So that even heavy goods reach their destination safely, highly-resilient transportation platforms are required with the best possible mobility.
For many sectors, such as the aerospace or mechanical engineering industries, the wheel and castor specialist Blickle, based in Swabian Rosenfeld, offers suitable solutions for heavy duty applications. The standard range includes heavy duty wheels and castors in numerous versions.
