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.
