Rotacaster Praised by Variety of Companies for Productivity Improvements

 

Tighes Hill, NSW -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/18/2012 -- Rotacaster omni-directional wheels have been receiving praise from a wide variety of company leaders because of the superior load stability, as well as the robust, durable and corrosion resistant construction.

According to Peter McKinnon, managing director of Rotacaster, “Patented Rotacaster omni directional floor wheels combine 360° movement with fixed orientation…it is the only real alternative to the swivel castor. We are thrilled so many firms have found the unique omni wheel to be helpful in productivity and safety.”

"Rotacaster multi-directional wheels fitted to upright trolleys, dollies and bin trolleys have improved our company manual handling health and safety record," noted Byron Stott, Manager of Andrew Mathers Removals.

Martyn Lani, Owner of Lakeside Tavern Bottle Shop commented, "If I had to describe the hand truck in one word it would be ‘easy’...It’s effortless to operate. I’ll never go back to using anything else."

"Where other castors froze and were difficult to control, (Rotacaster) omni-wheels are able to cope with the environment without difficulty," suggested David Rose, Director of Exquisine.

Andrew Parker a Manager at the Gloucester Bowling & Recreation Club said, “The Rotatruck Self Supporting Hand Trolley cuts the work time in half because it is so simple to use. And best of all it will reduce staff injury due to back strain. Best purchase of the year, I would recommend it to everyone”

Because each Rotacaster omni-directional wheel acts independently, multiple wheels and layouts can provide extra maneuverability and be customized to meet specific load weight and distribution requirements. Wheels can be purchased independently so customers can add their own mount or purchase a Rotacaster wheel and mount combined.

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.

McKinnon shared the company mission, noting, "At Rotacaster Wheel Limited, we truly believe our unique products have the potential to revolutionize workplaces by offering real equipment solutions that create a safer working environment. With core values such as safety, quality and innovation, our award winning company strives to design ergonomic products that are practical and that will reduce overall costs by reducing workplace injury and increasing productivity."
