Rotacaster 125mm Omniwheels Finds Robotics Enthusiast Xander
Feb. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- Xander is the author of Bot Bench.  An infrastructure architect by day, and robotics enthusiast by night, Xander builds and programs robots and sensors. He is also one of the founders of the Mindboards forums. As a member of the LEGO MCP, he helps spread the word about the LEGO Mindstorms robotics platform.
In a recent blog post Xander noted:  “Omni all the wheels! That was my first thought when I received these new Rotacaster 125mm omniwheels.  They’re fantastic looking and HUGE, about 3 times the diameter of the 43mm ones that are being sold now.  They have some pretty impressive stats; they can handle a load of more than 100 kilos each!”  A link to the video of a large test platform may be found at:
According to Peter McKinnon, managing director for Rotacaster, this innovative design can overcome issues associated with trying to move and handle materials. Also available in an outdoor, all-terrain model, it reduces the effort of manual handling and repetitive movement that can lead to workplace injury.  A conversion kit is available for operations that want to retrofit traditional hand trucks.
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.
