Air Caster Transport

The technology behind the solution

How do air casters work

Air casters make it possible to move the heaviest of objects. They consist of a flexible rubber membrane inflated by compressed air. With a maximum operating pressure between 1 bar and 4 bar depending on the air caster type, a controlled “leakage” of the compressed air creates a wafer-thin air film between the floor and the air caster membrane.

Specifications:

The air caster “floats” a few tenths of a millimeter from the floor (about the thickness of a human hair), resulting in virtually no friction and making it possible to move heavy objects with very little force (only  1 kg  of force to move a weight of up to  1.000 kg). When working with air casters it is important that there is sufficient air and that the floor is suitable. This page describes the floor and compressed air requirements to successfully work with air casters.

Aerofilm-freedomtomove-white-blue

Aerofilm Systems designs, develops and produces air casters and air caster transport systems. This form of internal transport is the ideal solution for moving and positioning light to very heavy objects in a safe, ergonomic and cost-effective way. It is also ideal for sensitive and therefore often expensive objects, because air casters do not cause vibrations during movement.
