Skate Wheels and Omni Wheels
Conveyor skate wheels and omni wheels are specialised types of wheels designed for material handling systems. Conveyor skate wheels are small, durable wheels mounted on axles and fitted into a frame, used primarily in conveyor systems to facilitate the easy rolling and direction of goods along a path. They are typically made of metal or plastic and are used in gravity or manual conveyance applications. On the other hand, omni wheels, also known as omnidirectional wheels, have small discs around their circumference which enable movement in all directions. These wheels allow for more complex maneuvers and can move objects not just forward and backward but also side to side, making them ideal for robotics, assembly lines, and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) where multidirectional movement and precise positioning are required. Both types of wheels streamline the process of moving items in various industrial, retail, and distribution environments.
