Load Handling Systems for the Material Handling Equipment Industry
In today's busy industrial areas and locations, you will always
see the need for moving heavy loads and machinery. In fact, this
is part of our daily routines, in some cases. Moving heavy loads
around our factories, warehouses and other industrial buildings
is part and parcel of daily life.
Some companies struggle to do this efficiently and
cost-effectively, others invest in specialized equipment that is
designed to do exactly as they need: move loads and machines to
different areas. Such specialized equipment is available from
Hovair Systems of Seattle, who has been manufacturing load
handling systems for the Material Handling Equipment Industry since the mid 70s.
However, there are no wheels and casters involved that will
damage your floor surfaces during the moving process. This is
one of the biggest complaints in the material handling industry:
load moving equipment that damages your floor surface thus
causing problems for subsequent load moving operation.
Shown below is a typical Hovair square aluminum load handling system set up in a square footprint to resemble the size of the
machine it is about to load. When in a state of readiness,
simply switch on the air supply to the system and watch the
machine rise away from the floor surface ready to be moved
safely to its destination.
All Hovair's Load Handling Systems equipment is pneumatically driven (compressed air)
and compress air is usually freely available within your plant
or business premises. Simply hook up a 1-inch coupling hose to a
Hovair load handling and moving system and you can be in
business moving machines and heavy loads around your industrial
premises. It really is that easy. Hovair Systems has load
handling and moving systems available ranging from one ton
through to 100 tons and beyond. If its a machine or heavy load
that has awkward shapes and sizes, we can handle those too.
Machines of disproportionate weight are also a breeze for
Hovair's load moving equipment.
Lifting Safety is assured. Most machinery that is lifted
by Hovair Systems equipment is handled in a smooth lifting
motion from a ground clearance to enable the machine to be
lifted sufficiently to cause air flotation to take place and
allow the machine to be moved as planned. Lift height is always
going to be minimal depending on what type of air bearings are
being used for the operation. The machines are quite safe when
being moved by Hovair Systems machine handling and moving
