    Default Caster wheel Ball type

    Hi All
    many a times while making robots one needs a caster wheel which can move in any direction. It basically a ball shaped caster wheel. I found out the technical name for it 'Ball Transfer Unit ' . It would be wonderful if RI shops keep good quality wheel like the one in the URL below.

    http://www.indiamart.com/vardhmanbea...omponents.html (search for ball transfer units).

    Cheap one are easy to buy foy for 30-40 Rs but they have a lot of friction.

    The concept is same.Whats the difference between the two???

    BTW any castor wheel with ball made up of metal will have high friction but instead if you use a rubber, it will have much less friction.
    Redefine it your way!!!!
