  • Causa
    The rear casters of the collimator cart may become loose and under certain circumstances result in the cart tipping towards the operator. this problem occurs when two conditions are present: 1. the caster has insufficient clamping force and 2. the affected caster passes over a low spot in the floor. if both conditions exist, it is possible the caster will dislodge from the bottom of the cart, allowing the cart to tip backwards toward the operator.

However, if you suspect a caster is loose, as indicated by shaking while the cart is in motion, discontinue use of the collimator cart and notify your local Service representative.
