Moving extremely heavy objects such as machines with the power of our Polyurethane Air Casters! Because we allow air to escape in a controlled manner, this makes it possible to easily move large weights with Polyurethane Air Casters in a safe and ergonomic way. Air casters are a transportation tool also known as Air Skate, Air Bearing Caster or Air Bearing. Air casters are extremely suitable for realizing internal transport movements of extremely heavy objects. This is also the reason that Air casters have been used as an aid in various industries for decades. There are two parts that determine the capacity per Air caster, this is the surface area combined with the working pressure. Keep in mind that you always need a minimum of 3 Air casters to ensure stability. However, there are no restrictions in the number of air cushions that can be combined, so you can easily scale up to the desired weight to be moved. Is a machine or module moved more often? Then it can make sense to permanently mount air cushions under the machine or module. Aerofilm Polyurethane Air Cushions have been a proven technology for this for decades. Our air cushions are ideal for fixed mounting under a machine, module, or other weight. This is due to the wear-free character and low air consumption. They are designed for very intensive use and can be used 24/7. When used correctly, the air cushions can last for years. To explain the technology, we often refer to Airhockey or a Hovercraft. Once the object floats on a thin layer of air, it can easily be moved. The more working pressure in the air cushion, the more capacity an Air caster gets. The amount of air needed to move the object is determined by the type of Air caster and the quality of the surface.
