       T= each caster load

A good caster should move easily and be durable. The part of turn (frame turn, wheel rolling) should choose the minimum friction material. And accessories should choose those treated by special technology.

Under normal temperature and on flat smooth floor condition, the speed should be no faster than 4km/h of working. And there should be static interval during the work time.
