Traditionally, loads of all shapes and sizes, and machines and other heavy objects, have been moved using either wheels or casters fitted to the underside of what was being moved. This used to work just fine for most folks. But in today’s busy industrial marketplace, we are finding much better ways to move these loads.
Air Casters May Be the Modern Alternative
Air Casters are small devices that work on the same concept of a hovercraft: the float across the floor surface. While hovercraft can travel over water as well as land, Air Casters are designed to operate in industrial factories and similar locations, where they can lift and moves their loads across the floor surface to their destination. And the best part about them is THEY WILL NOT DAMAGE YOUR FLOORS.
Here are some images of current air casters offered by Hovair Systems:
Above are square aluminum and round steel air casters. In standard mode using A-type bearings. Used in groups of 4 or more, they provide lifting power that can pick loads form 1 to 100 tons with ease.
Above is a low profile air caster that is designed to slide under machines. In standard mode it has B-type bearings. Used in groups of four they provide formidable lifting power to move heavy machines.
Above are two diagrams of a typical load footprint as laid out ready for a load. They are both much same except for their shape difference. They are laid out in simple format and adjustments can be made.
From the formats shown above there are so many different types of load moving casters you could customize to suit you location and needs.
While industrial load and machine moving generally involves cranes, pulleys and other similar traditional tools, Hovair Systems offers a different viewpoint to lifting and moving heavy machines – by lifting them from below using top quality air casters to do the work for you. Air Casters are not only safe and easy to use, they are also very cost-effective when considering they can be used over and over again.
