Air Bearing & Caster Systems • Heavy
alternative to the standard caster load modules is the air lifting jack
which contains its own base module as well as a lifting and leveling
The air lifting jack works in exactly the same way as
a standard round steel module except that it has the lifting and
leveling facility. Lifting jacks normally have A-type air bearings on
board and provide a degree of leveling which is critical for certain
loads - usually machinery - that need to be level before operational
use. Leveling is by way of a crank handle.
Air lifting jacks are supplied with mounting brackets
for easy attachment to your load.
To the right is a typical lifting jack which shows
the air bearing and leveling assembly.
