What are air casters?
Air casters (also known as Air Bearings/Air Skates) are devices that use compressed air to create a thin film of air between the caster and the floor, allowing heavy objects to float and move almost without friction. Air casters can lift and transport objects ranging from a few hundred pounds to thousands of tons, with minimal effort and high precision.
Why choose air casters?
Air casters offer many advantages over other methods of internal transport, such as wheels, cranes, or rails. Some of the benefits are:
- Safety: Air casters reduce the risk of injury and damage to operators, objects, and floors. Air casters are also silent and vibration-free, creating a more comfortable working environment.
- Ergonomics: Air casters allow operators to move and position heavy objects with ease, using simple controls and minimal force. Air casters also eliminate the need for complex and costly infrastructure, such as rails or cranes.
- Cost-effectiveness: Air casters reduce the maintenance and operational costs of internal transport, as they have few moving parts and require only compressed air as a power source. Air casters also increase the productivity and efficiency of the transport process, as they can move objects faster and more accurately than other methods.
What can air casters do for you?
Air casters can solve a variety of challenges in the field of internal transport, such as:
- Moving heavy, delicate, large, or special objects, such as machines, transformers, vehicles, or even modular homes.
- Optimizing the layout and flexibility of your production facility, warehouse, or workshop.
- Improving the quality and performance of your products or processes, by reducing vibrations, shocks, or contamination.
