A load module
or air caster is a machined assembly - either

Load modules - also known as air casters - are available for each size of air
Load modules are fitted with inlet ports, or air flow
control valves, and contain air chambers that allow air to flow from the
inlet to the air bearing to cause pressurization and eventual flotation
to take place.
