Experience Superior Impact Absorption with the Omega Wheel

August 12, 2021 in Product Specific

When you need an all-around wheel that offers superior load-bearing capacity and advanced impact-absorbing capabilities, you need the patented web-spoke design of RWM’s Omega Wheel. Our engineers have developed this polyurethane wheel to deliver superior performance and reliability. It is a perfectly balanced wheel that performs well carrying heavy loads at high speeds, won’t chunk or tear, and will roll near silently along the floor.

Advantages of the Omega Wheel

There are many advantages to choosing the Omega Wheel for your operations. The wheel is expertly engineered and will operate at a speed of 17.5 mph for a minimum of 20 minutes. The polyurethane wheel will retain its bond at this speed and duration and won’t delaminate like lower-quality competitors.

Moreover, the wheel is composed of specially formulated polymers. This creates a resilient wheel capable of traveling over rough, uneven surfaces without chunking or tearing. This makes it the perfect wheel for smooth, efficient operation that will reduce strain on employees and minimize the risk of damage to cargo. Additionally, the wheel is designed to reduce noise without the need for shear disks. We achieve this through the use of cost-effective spacer reducers, which are easily installed on your rigs.

The design of the Omega Wheel also allows us to eliminate spring load casters. Our patented design will allow you to travel over a 1/2″ bar without the need to change axle lines. The design also ensures that it can absorb impacts that would cause other wheels to shatter and fail.

At RWM, we understand the rigorous, demanding conditions our clients operate within. Our Omega Wheel is custom designed to withstand the most challenging work environments, from factory floors to warehouses. Our engineers considered every possibility during the five years they invested in designing the wheel.

To that end, the wheel was designed to resist picking up metal chips and debris from the floor of automotive plants or in towline applications. Plus, it can be installed on any rig that uses the same size wheel. This makes it a cost-effective, easy-to-install improvement on your existing caster systems.
