Rotacaster – Which way do you want to go?
I like the thinking behind this invention, a wheel inside a wheel. By adding small wheels to the larger wheel it allows you to move in any direction. Good one…
The Rotacaster wheel was a show-stopper at the 2007 ProMat Expo in Chicago.
The exhibition drew 35,000 visitors to inspect the wares of the materials handling market.
Tuncurry designer Graham Guileâ€™s creation was hailed â€œthe most innovative product at the show.â€
Company CEO Peter McKinnon described the prospects of Rotacaster Wheel Limited, currently being assessed by US consultants, as â€œvery positive.â€
â€œThe response has been very encouraging, and now weâ€™re finalising negotiations for larger premises and additional machinery in Tuncurry.â€
The little gadget at the centre of all the fuss is a fixed wheel that uses dozens of embedded rollers to move in all directions, including directly sideways.
