    Its definately not a metal else it could be some variant of plastic hard or maybe plastic.Its pointless because omni wheels are available in so much types that you cant just point out one material instead you should give the link of some particular omni wheel if you have a doubt.
    Redefine it your way!!!!

    please post your thoughts with the following
    1. nex-robotics.com/products/wheels-and-belts/omnidirectional-wheel-10cm-heavy-duty.html
    2.robokits.co.in/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=57&products _id=284

    this are two however i am planning to manufacture the nex robotics type but can you give some helpful hints what should be the diameter of rim and the hole shaft etc.I may think this will depends upon needs but please give some suggestions
    for materials: we have experience and know everything which type should we use for the purpose and cost.

    no problem
    We dont copy other designs or we dont reproduce such types
    I can apply my own designs etc but i never seen this wheel and i may ask the same person to get one.
    Their are several types to change such as diameter and the shape etc
    same omini wheel from robokits

    This is the copy-each-other-and-increase-competition era.... none of the above have any Patent on the Omniwheel. infact , they are copies of other existing products worldwide.

    The Omni wheel can be made very easily. No need for expensive mould/ die-casting etc.,

    Please look at Dagu for sourcing such stuff . It is a chinese company with good quality products.

    These guys are in their own trip with crazy overpricing of products !!! You can get them from About Rs 200 with duty paid from china. Though ull have to order more like 10 - 20 though.

    Itll still be cheaper than buying 3 for your robot from Indian companies atleast for now .

    have you made any types of those wheels products etc. manufacturers wont sell like 50 or 100.Both companies have more prices because theirs no company to compete it.
    chineese vs indians companies have huge difference
    Chineese companies they make products neatly just like the electronic kits which we cant get soldered.

    For a manufacturer i may think it will cost only around 50 rupees or even below but i have never seen so unsure.As from the weight of the product i am saying

    ....make them all the time- from car seat beads to rubber hose-pipes and bangles.
    That 800bucks OmniWheel from the above links is the easiest to make - just 8 L-clamps, rubber pipe & superglue.
