I'm going to have to say the weld held the caster on it a way that the plate was not designed. I believe the plate bent and broke away.
I assume there are plates that ARE meant to be welded.
EDIT: I'd like to see someone mfg. studded plates for casters you can weld to your piece. Actually I could make these.
