HaloDrive™ Pods

Conceptual Innovations’ patented technology featured in the HaloDrive™ Pods™ enables these motor-powered, omnidirectional wheels unlimited maneuverability with extreme precision (+/- 1/4” Variance). Each of the HaloDrive Pods™ is independently steered and driven enabling unrestricted movement in any direction, at any angle. Pods can instantly switch drive modes, making it easy to control, maneuver, and position.

HaloDrive™ Pods™ are designed for modular integration to add mobility into a variety of extreme-duty industrial applications. Thus, capable of essentially moving limitless weight and size capacity, simply increase Pods to accommodate the application’s requirements.

Industrial Omnidirectional Wheels

  • Scalable
    Self-contained, modular design simplifies implementation on a wide variety of heavy equipment.
  • Powerful
    Each Pod can move several tons, capacity increases exponentially with the number of Pods.
  • Easy
    Intuitive controls and safety features simplify operation, eliminating the need for certification or skilled labor.
  • Efficient
    Less downtime charging thanks to patented power management technology.

Advantages

HaloDrive™ systems are a safer alternative to forklifts, overhead cranes, and other high-risk, difficult-to-operate, and space-consuming equipment. HaloDrive™ Systems can move massive loads with extreme precision and do not require a certified, highly skilled operator.

Instant Engagement Steering™

HaloDrive Pods feature a patented technology that manages steering and drive power simultaneously. Our exclusive Instant Engagement Steering™ enables the Pods to instantly change drive modes and steering type without advanced activation or manual engagement. Each Pod has full steering and drive capabilities, and all Pods in a HaloDrive system are synchronized to operate in unison, complementing one another to provide unparalleled performance.

HaloDrive Systems are designed to be intuitive, enabling operators to drive, maneuver, and position with total control. Thus, making HaloDrive quicker, safer, and easier to use than most other steerable drive systems. So easy that the average laborer is trained and fully functional within 30 minutes.

Quickly implement functionality to improve operations, such as

  • Maneuver and position with exacting precision
  • Change directions without rotating the load
  • Begin movement at any angle regardless of direction
  • Rotate on its axis

Add Omnidirectional Drive Power to Carts and Equipment.

  • The only omnidirectional motorized caster on the market for loads over 1 ton
  • Move in any direction, maneuver easily, and position with extreme precision.
  • Features patented technology that optimizes power and battery life.
  • HaloDrive™ Pods can easily be integrated to upgrade existing equipment or develop new transport solutions.

Ideal for applications up to 100 tons on just about any type of extremely large and heavy equipment

  • Aircraft Maintenance Platforms
  • Carts and Transports
  • Overhead Gantry Cranes
  • Turntables
