Acorn™ Industrial Products Co has been the leading manufacturer in the utilization of cast polyamides for caster and wheel applications in the USA since 1990 under the trademark name Nylacron™. Nylacron™ Blue is heat-stabilized and stress relieved cast nylon 6. This feature makes Nylacron™ Blue wheels unique in the industry. Every Nylacron™ wheel is labeled to insure genuine Acorn™ product specifications and quality.
Nylacron™ wheels replace cast iron, steel, stainless steel, phenolic, solid elastomer and urethane wheels in casters and wheels where the application calls for high load capacity, impact resistance and easy rolling, as well as floor protection. Nylacron™ wheels are ideal for moist environments, wash-down applications and can even be used completely submerged under water. The casting process for Nylacron™ increases the load capacity over Phenolics, has no fillers and the lowest coefficient of friction. Since Nylacron™ wheels are straight sided; a wide array precision bearings can be installed in the wheel hub for far better rollability under a full load with longer life. Ergonomic safety and zero maintenance define our Nylacron™ wheels.
Acorn™ has state-of-the-art CNC manufacturing and production facilities to produce standard and custom Nylacron™ wheels in both short and long runs as required. We can produce Nylacron™ wheels in any diameter up to 51" with sealed precision ball bearings (standard and stainless steel). Nylacron™ wheels are suitable for use in any caster rig presently in service or required in the USA. The Acorn™ wheel division makes all its own bushings on CNCs to fit any wheel to the inside hub length of the caster rig.
