Aerofilm Gap crosser Air caster
Move heavy loads with the power of the Gap crosser!By floating on a thin layer of air, it is possible to move very heavy objects easily and safely with a Gap crosser air cushion. An Air Caster is also known as an Air Skate, Air Bearing Caster, Air Bearing or Air Cushion. This is an ideal tool for internal transport. Therefore, this technology has been used in various industries for decades; to solve internal transport challenges. The surface area of the membrane in combination with the working pressure determines the capacity per Air caster. You always need at least 3 Air casters to create a stable base. There is no limitation in the number of air cushions that you can combine with a movement. To work with air cushions, 2 preconditions are important. Sufficient compressed air must be available. In addition, the floor must be flat and airtight, so that the cushion can settle against the floor before an air film is formed. Sometimes there are small cracks or joints in the floor, as a result of which the air film is not retained with a standard air cushion. This can make further movement very difficult. Because the Aerofilm gap crosser blows the air over several holes, small cracks, crevices and joints can be easily overcome. This technology can be compared to Air hockey or a Hovercraft. Once floating on a thin layer of air, all horizontal movements are possible. You just need enough air (both pressure and volume) and a suitable floor. The type of Air caster and the quality of your floor determine how much air you need.
