Rotacaster Omniwheels Part of Win for Dutch Robocup Junior Championships

Rotacaster Omniwheels Part of Win for Dutch Robocup Junior Championships

July 11, 2012 - PRLog -- Peter McKinnon, managing director of Rotacaster (www.rotacaster.com.au), shared the company mission, noting, "At Rotacaster Wheel Limited, we truly believe unique products have the potential to revolutionize the world. Talentenclub’s Talentenbot equipped with multi-directional Rotacaster omniwheels won the Dutch Robocup Junior championships and qualified for the World Championships in Eindhoven next year”.
Facing plenty of competition, using the Rotacaster omniwheels proved to be a massive tactical advantage. The superior grip of their Rotacaster wheels proved to be too much for their opponents who were simply pushed aside with little effort.
The wheel used was from Rotacaster's 48mm wheel range with a dedicated Lego® Mindstorms® NXT compatible hub, enabling the direct application without further modification.
McKinnon said “I congratulate the young team and look forward to the World Championships in Eindhoven”.
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; allowing for numerous combinations to achieve load sharing and required maneuverability.  Just as Kleenex is to tissue, Rotacaster is to the Omniwheel. 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.  
Australian Rotacaster Wheel Limited designs, manufactures and distributes innovative patented multi-directional wheels, which are quickly becoming the alternative to the swivel caster. The Rotacaster is a sturdy, precision engineered wheel, adaptable to a vast array of applications including traditional industrial, commercial, conveyer and robotic uses. The multi-directional Rotocaster wheel overcomes many of the limitations of the traditional swivel caster wheel, offering improved functionality, safety, stability and maneuverability.
