Air Casters

Air Casters are also often called Air Cushions, Air Skates or even Air Bearings. Air Casters can be mounted permanently underneath specific equipment or tools or used as a modular air caster system.

 

Air Casters are pneumatic elements that can be placed underneath an object or frame, allowing almost friction-free movement and positioning in all horizontal directions. That means that Air Casters are ideal for moving heavy objects.

 

Air Caster corporation Aerofilm Systems produces the A-type Air Caster, B-type Air Caster and NC-type Air Caster: each with their specific advantages that are described below. Also below you will find that water casters are available which use water as their operating medium instead of air.

WATER CASTERS

Both the A- and B-type of Air Casters can be supplied as Water Casters where the medium is changed from air into water. The principle remains the same. The water consumption of water casters is generally 5% of the amount of air volume needed by the air casters.
