Minecarts have been around for hundreds of years hauling heavy materials through mine shafts. As far back as 1556, wooden mining carts used pins with a guide groove to move hefty items around. With the advent of industrial metallurgy and casting, mining wheels evolved from wood to cast iron. This major technological advancement greatly increased the capabilities and working life of the mining car wheels. Over time, as the demands of higher capacity and greater production lifespan outpaced even the best cast iron wheels. Cast wheels are inherently more brittle and prone to breakage. Once again, advances in technology made it possible to offer better solutions in the form of forged steel wheels. From their first industrial applications, it was obvious that forged steel was far superior to cast iron or even cast steel in terms of strength and toughness.
