The 48mm steel mecanum wheel is the smallest size mecanum wheel in all of our mecanum wheels, it includes 2 left wheels and 2 right wheels,it has the **compatible brass hub (not included). You can use the hub to connect to your DC motor.
**Brass hub is available from our store.
Each wheel is comprised of 8 TPR rollers, these axles and rollers are sandwiched between two steel plates, use these mecanum wheels on your robot, it can be able to forward/backward movement, but also side to side. Using rollers set on 45 degree rotational axis parallel to the main rotational axis of the wheel, all of you need to do is to add your drive motors, controller boars and batteries.
Number of rollers: 8
Number of plates: 2
Body Material: Steel
Roller Material: TPR
Length of roller: 25.5mm
Net weight: 56g x 4
Load Capacity: 3kg
Using four of mecanum wheels provides omni-directional movement for a vehicle without needing a conventional steering system slipping is a common problem in the mecanum wheel as it has only one roller with a single point of ground contact at any one time. Due to the dynamics of the mecanum wheel, it can create force vectors in both the x and y-direction while only being driven in the y-direction. Positioning four mecanum wheels, one at each corner of the chassis(two mirrored pairs),allows net forces to be formed in the x,y and rotational direction.
Various hub available to ease mounting to motor.
