External Air Powered Drives

The movement onĀ air castersĀ can be compared to the movement on ice. It requires quite some force to overcome the initial inertia to start moving heavy objects. Once in motion, controlling and stopping them also requires a lot of power. The rule of thumb with air caster transportation is that above 9.000 lbs of weight we recommend having a number of people available to control the load safely, or you can make use of external air power drives. External air power drives can be connected temporarily to move the objects and then stored again after use.

The attachable air power drive consists of a pneumatic drive motor, pneumatic actuator to connect the coupling and a control bar to control the speed and actuator. We also have power drives available that can be connected and then controlled remotely.

There is a standard type of external air power drive available, modifications can be made on request.


Connect standard external drives to safely and ergonomically move transportation platforms

Connect drives to enable remote control of transportation platforms


Very ergonomically because no manpower needed

High reliability

Low maintenance

Heavy objects can be operated by one single person

Plug and play

The only exhaust gas is compressed air

Customisation possible to fully meet the requirements
