Air Bearing & Air Caster Equipment for moving large machinery and production assemblies. Wheeled Vehicles with Omni-directional steering for the handling of Heavy Loads. Air Bearings are also known as Air Casters, they are one in the same. SOLVING air bearing-based technology is designed to provide easier and free transport of various types of loads, regardless of weight or size. Air casters use a continuous, regulated flow of air to create an air film between an inflated bearing element and the floor surface. The air casters (air bearings) are mounted to a rigid platform to provide load carrying capability. The thin film of air created between the air casters and the floor surface allows the load to lift and float, virtually friction-free and omni-directional movement is achieved.
Moving heavy loads, from a 260 ton earth quake bridge to a crate of parts AerGlide Material Handling Products and rigging sets have the answers with our wide range of standard and custom manufactured products that include Air Caster and Air Bearing based, Aerglide Air Skids, Air pallets, platforms and transporters, Drive Tractors, lift & tilt tables, turntables, and complete turn-key operations. AerGlide utilizes advanced load movement methods and air film technology and pneumatics in their standard and custom engineered Air Caster equipped products such as Turntables, rigging skids and platforms. We design and engineer our products using ergonomic technology to optimize worker productivity while focusing on increased safety and ease of operation.
Offers heavy load and ergonomic solutions for material handling. Air Casters and Air Bearings make great rigging equipment for floating heavy loads on a bearing of air. Air film transporters and air pallets to move loads manually, power driven, radio controlled or automated guided vehicles.
