Air Cargo Handling System
The Air Cargo Handling System is designed to load and unload air cargo containers of different shapes and sizes into airplanes where there is no permanent infrastructure available. The Air Cargo Handling System is also very suitable for the transportation of fragile cargo load containers.
To load the cargo containers inside the airplane with the Air Cargo Handling System you only need compressed air and an airtight surface to move on.
Air Caster Technology
The principle of transportation is based on air caster technology. The air casters operate by means of a flexible rubber membrane that is fed by compressed air. A controlled leakage of the compressed air creates a thin air film between the floor and the air caster. The air caster can float 1/250 inch above the floor with virtually no friction. It only requires 1 kg of pulling force to move a weight of 10,000 kg.
