Tighes Hill, NSW -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/14/2012 -- 360 degree maneuverability is achieved with Rotacaster’s direct lateral and rotational movement. Rotacaster makes manual movement of loads safer, faster and easier. The most important message communicated by safety managers is the concern and need for workplace ergonomic improvements whenever and wherever possible. Especially when workers compensation, lost work days and insurance premiums can be reduced while improving productivity.
Rotacaster’s Managing Director Peter McKinnon recently announced a series of strategic partnerships in South Korea, Italy, and the United Kingdom. South Korean-based, BNP, Co., Ltd., Italian reseller Karma Group, located in Manzano, Italy, and UK reseller Varley Ltd., located in Cheshire, UK have entered into a joint effort with the multi-directional omni-wheel solution manufacturer within the past 90 days.
“We look forward to working closely with these leading international organizations to position Rotacaster as the go-to multi-directional wheel solution globally. Each has an excellent reputation and brings together a highly regarded group of companies across a range of disciplines and a fast growing presence in materials handling,” noted McKinnon.
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.
