Rotacaster Proves Fewer Back Injuries
Rotacaster Proves Fewer Back Injuries with the Rotatruck handtruck
In an effort to improve manufacturing and warehouse productivity and safety, Rotacaster announced there is 78% less effort negotiating curbs 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.
Less back injury and stress can be viewed at:
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;
