Rotacaster Wheel Ltd.’s innovative multi-directional wheel generates a quantum leap in handtruck innovation. Rotacaster Wheel Ltd., and Magnus Mobility will share important data including the unique and significant ergonomic and productivity improvements in these handtrucks, featuring the safety award-winning Rotatruck.
Productivity is Quantified at Rotacaster:
• 59% less muscular effort required for load pull-back
• 41% faster getting over a curb
• 62% less muscular effort transporting a load
• 32% less back flexion pulling back the load
Peter McKinnon, Managing Director of Rotacaster Wheel Ltd., and David Dosier, Rotacaster Product Manager with Magnus Mobility will share why this handtruck is best-in-class and offers the most rapid return-on-investment worldwide along with extraordinary safety benefits.
Manufactured from engineering polymers, the Rotacaster’s injection-molded, weblike structure and over-molded rollers, ensure a durable and robust wheel with no pins, inserts or seams, making it ideal for tough environments. The fixed orientation of the wheel facilitates both simple and stable mounting alternatives that improve load stability and are less prone to impact damage.
In an effort to improve worker safety, Rotacaster announced there is 59% Less Pull Back Effort with the Rotacaster Hand Truck. Rotacaster Wheel Limited is an Australian company with a focus on innovative product design. Rotacaster is a patented multi-directional wheel quickly becoming the alternative to the swivel caster. The Rotacaster is a sturdy, robust wheel, adaptable to a vast array of applications and it overcomes many of the limitations associated with the traditional swivel caster wheel.
Rotacaster, while fixed in a primary orientation, facilitates movement in any direction without the need of a traditional swivel mount. Omni-wheels have been used in conveyor and light-duty robotics applications for years, yet the Rotacaster multi-directional wheel is engineered to provide additional robustness, durability, and ride quality necessary as an industrial floor wheel.
Applications for the Rotacaster range from material handling equipment (hand trucks, trolleys, dollies, carts, skates) to shopping carts and luggage; from conveyor transfers, pipe rollers, and other inverted applications to robotics and patient lifts in medical settings.
The benefits of Rotacaster are also significant including 360 degree movement and rotation, greater load stability, and easier directional control and tracking. Rotacaster allows for greater control on inclines via primary axis tracking as well as precision placement - no offset movement. Users of Rotacaster enjoy minimal space or housing requirements and non-marking polyurethane rollers. Unlike many standard caster wheel products, Rotacaster provides a compact, robust, corrosion-resistant full polymer solution with extraordinary functionality. Each wheel acts independently and is not limited to a four point wheel configuration;
An exclusive arrangement has been formed between Rotacaster Wheel Limited and Magnus Mobility Systems Inc. Magnus is the leading, worldwide provider of motion control solutions including casters and wheels, gas springs, levelers, bearings, and accessories. Magnus combines the best of single-source convenience with the benefits of a global network. Strategic distribution and service centers enable Magnus to provide timely delivery of Rotacaster products.
The Rotacaster and Magnus Mobility Press conference will be held on Wednesday, Feb.8 at 10:30 am, at Booth 3520.
