Penn Elcom Launches Automatic Castor

The device promises to make stacking case systems and loading trucks at a show or concert faster, easier and much safer than ever before.

The product utilises a unique self-centring mechanism, developed by Penn Elcom’s R&D team, that stops the caster spinning and clicks it into the straight position when it’s being lifted or not bearing any load. The product is now available via Penn Elcom’s global online sales portal which went live earlier in the year.


Penn’s Automatic technology is currently available for both braked and non-braked versions of their industry standard ‘heavy duty’ 10mm / 3.94-inch castor which comes with 27mm / 1-inch wide blue rubber tyre. Automatic Castors are straightforward to retro-fi on any standard castor wheelbase for additional flexibility.

“We had an instant response and have experienced massive interest,” stated Penn Elcom Online’s Rob Platt. “It’s one of the simplest but most innovative products Penn Elcom has ever developed and brought to the market and it’s well priced, so we are expecting it to be a best seller,” he concluded.
