Rotacaster 48mm Double (60A) medium Polyurethane Roller with Acetal Bearing
The Rotacaster 48mm omni wheel has been engineered for both floor and inverted applications such as manual and powered conveyor transfer systems, feed tables, feed rails, pipe rollers, workstation turntables, furniture castors and robot wheels. The Rotacaster 48mm omni wheel provides the perfect alternative to swivel castors, conveyor wheels and rollers and ball transfer units.
The 60A durometer polyurethane rollers provide good combination of traction for acceleration and speed, load capacity and durability, which makes it a good all-round performer. Based on our commercial grade wheel it is a tough and very capable competitor.

Ever seen a wheel go sideways?
Our Rotacaster wheel is an Australian owned, made and patented multi-directional wheel with 360° turn mobility. We’ve combined the simplicity and functionality of a fixed wheel with the mobility of a swivel caster. We haven’t reinvented the wheel, just given it a revolution.
Think about the wheel moving backwards and forwards. Now imagine a floor wheel that can move independently in all directions.
In 1990, inspired by a biblical reference that describes “a wheel in the middle of a wheel” (first chapter of Ezekiel), Henry Guile began investigating the creation of a wheel with unlimited movement potential. Henry continued experimenting for many years but sadly, his dream was never realised.
Ten years after initial experiments, Henry’s son Graham revisited his father’s early work. After two years of re-engineering trials and a determination to crack the invention, Graham finally designed the Rotacaster wheel of today.
Launched in 2005, the final design was an engineering feat that revolutionised the very nature of the wheel. The Rotacaster, an omni-directional, multi-purpose wheel, with unrivalled manoeuvrability and unlimited potential was created. It is the only real alternative to the traditional floor swivel castor.
