The 4 inch (100mm) aluminum Mecanum wheel is comprised of a series of rollers, mounted so that their axis of rotation is 45 to the axis of the main wheel. As the wheels rotate in sync, the vehicle moves forward or in reverse normally, but by spinning pairs of wheels in opposite directions, the rollers enable sideways movement. Put it all together and you can move forward, backward, laterally, diagonally, or spin in a circle. Also included are twelve extra bolts (60 mm long) for bolting on the 6mm Nexus aluminum wheel hub or the 8mm Nexus aluminum wheel hub.
Each roller is supported with ball bearings for smooth operation and higher load capacity. These are higher quality wheels than our 4" Mecanum Wheels with Plastic Sleeve Bearings.
Several wheel hub options are available for you to select from below.
These heavy duty 6 inch (152mm) aluminum mecanum wheels allow your robot to easily move laterally, diagonally, or spin in a circle. This set includes four wheels.
The 4 inch (100mm) aluminum Mecanum wheel set (2x Left, 2x Right) allows your robot to easily move forward and backward (reverse), laterally, diagonally, or spin in a circle. Each roller has a plastic sleeve bearing. Nexus part# 14162.
This is a Pre Built direct drive 4WD base Programmable robot kit that uses Nexus mecanum wheels and hubs. Its a Arduino robot platform for indoor robotics. It can vector in any direction.
