Plastic Omni Wheels for Multi-Directional Movement Series 2500
Diameters (inch) 1.90" and 3.15".
The unique Omni wheel design is based upon the use of a series of free turning barrel- shaped rollers which are mounted in a staggered pattern around the periphery of a larger diameter main wheel. The combination of these two rolling elements provides a compact and inexpensive unit for moving heavy loads in any direction along a plane; doing so smoothly and with a minimum effort. Unlike competitive transfer devices (ball transfers, swivel casters, etc.).
Mounting of Omni wheel units is both simple and direct. They may be fitted with axles or spacer bushings and installed in “U” shaped steel or aluminum channels. Alternately, they may be mounted on shafts and installed on conveyors in place of wheels or rollers, providing a convenient transfer station without the expense of designing and building transfer tables. Omni wheels with hexagonal bores make
building powered transfer systems a simple task. By simply mounting the Omni wheels on mating hexagonal shafts which are powered, single or double (X- Y) axis movement may be obtained.
