We “Reinvent the Wheel” everyday so you don’t have to…
Irwin Car is the recognized leader in the design and manufacture of standard and custom heavy-duty industrial wheel assemblies, and we have solved unique problems in every industry imaginable. With designs anchored in more than 125 years of proven success, our application engineers can work with you to provide the perfect solution to your application needs.
From our standard line of packaged wheel assemblies, to the custom-engineered wheel assemblies that address the most challenging problems of heavy industry, Irwin Car has the wheel assembly you need. We have the ability to pull from more than 100 years of design experience and field proven concepts as we bring our expertise to bear on your application or problem.
We can help you upgrade old equipment, increase capacity, decrease wear, improve ease of maintenance, and, in many cases, design you a new, heavier duty set of wheel assemblies that will mount in your current equipment with little to no frame modification on your end, meaning fast and easy installation.
Ranging in capacity from 1 to 120 tons per wheel, with wheel diameters from 4” to 80”, there is nothing we can’t do to keep your operations on track. And, given how long we have been doing this across so many industries, chances are we have already solved your problem.
