Air/Water Caster Turntables

The heavy vehicle industry often has the challenge to move their products efficiently through the factory. An industrial turntable can be used for this. This is a system that uses air casters or water casters to rotate heavy objects. The turntable can be built to the customer’s specifications. The application possibilities are very diverse. Just think of rotating and turning trucks, trains and cars in the factory. Industrial turntables with air/ water casters offer an excellent solution for the storage of heavy offshore cables after production.

Turntables are manufactured from an aluminium, steel or wooden top plate placed on a steel sub-frame. In this frame the air or water casters are mounted with the membrane upwards to lift the cover plate (with or without load) and produce an air film before rotating. A power driven motor rotates the table. Because the air/water casters  let the load ‘float’, little force is needed to move the turntable. Due to the low building height, these turntables can easily be installed in your current infrastructure with just a few adjustments. The turntable can be built both in and on the floor. Due to the simple construction and the small number of components, very little maintenance is required.
