100 Years of History
Omnitrack & Autotrack trace their roots back to early 1909.
The parent company, Autoset (Production) Ltd, established themselves in Birmingham as makers of treadle lathes, shelving systems, castors and wheels. From 1919 to 1922 they produced a range of popular scooters under the brand names of Autoglider .
Heavy duty 18000lbs Ball Unit.
The 9070 design needed to be compact and operate at all angles of orientation. This requirement causes problems with many conventional types of ball transfers, but Omnitrack’s “endless track” internal bearing system allows maximum precision and instantaneous directional change at all angles of orientation. This all needed to fit within the tight confines of the NASA brief.
New Omnicaster Range Launched Worldwide.
- Fast directional change – easier steering than traditional casters
- Glide smoothly over carpet, wood & marble floors
- Multiple drain channels expel debris & fluids
- Effortlessly convey delicate materials with minimal damage
UK-led, global project to build a supersonic car that will not only beat the current land speed world record but also smash the 1,000mph barrier.
BLOODHOUND wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the passion of founder (and former land speed world record holder) Richard Noble, driver and current land speed world record holder Andy Green, and the dedicated team who work tirelessly on the design and construction of the car.
Our Omnitrack 9620 ball transfer units are used in the loading of the rocket engines.
CERN “Hadron” collider particle research project supplier.
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles.
Our Omnitrack 9445 and 9454 ball transfer units were chosen for their performance under high temperatures.
Euro Fighter production project supplier.
Eurofighter Typhoon is the world’s most advanced swing-role combat aircraft offering agile performance, interoperability and unrivalled flexibility.
Our Omnitrack 9241 ball transfer units were used in assembly of the aircraft.
