Tighes Hill, NSW -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/02/2012 -- Rotacaster Wheel Ltd.’s innovative multi-directional wheel generates a quantum leap in handtruck innovation. Rotacaster Wheel Ltd. shares important data including the unique and significant ergonomic and productivity improvements in these hand trucks, featuring the safety award-winning Rotatruck.
All handtrucks promise safety, including Rotacaster. Safety concerns are critical, however they offer delayed gratification. Only Rotacaster offers immediate gratification because only Rotacaster can promise immediate productivity gains and rapid ROI.
Peter McKinnon, General Manager of Rotacaster, shared a video of the Rotacaster hand trolley with omniwheels - 2 min demonstration. The following link shows the Rotacaster Rotatruck in action.
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
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.
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.
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.
