Rigging Equipment - Rigging Supplies
Machine Lifting Moving
Above you can see a typical footprint layout for rigging purposes using air casters to float machines instead of lifting them. This process is very SAFE and easy to use.
Hovair Systems has been supplying Rigging Companies all over the USA, Canada, and Central America with air powered rigging equipment and supplies for many years.
No Rigging Company should be without a Hovair air caster machine moving system in addition to the traditional rigging practices of chains and pulleys, etc. Hovair Systems has been able to offer an added dimension to the Rigger's Toolbox... air powered lifting and handling equipment which is specifically designed to assist with the heavier loads... the heavy machines, heavy machinery, heavy objects, that usually present any rigging team with a challenge or two.

However, all Hovair Systems' products are pneumatically driven (with compressed air) and the operation process only causes the machine that is being lifted to rise no more than 1-inch above the ground. There is nothing much safer than moving a load sitting an inch or so off the ground. However, compressed air in itself is a safety hazard and Hovair Systems makes note of this in all their operator manuals.
Pneumatic Powered Lifting and Handling
The perfect complement to your arsenal of rigging tools and equipment - a Hovair Systems air bearing kit.
We have a great range of starter kits available complete with all hoses and necessary fittings. No additional extras to worry about and no worries about having the right hoses sizes and connections...everything you need in one easy package. The perfect solution for any rigging company.
Or we can supply kits that fit directly and permanently to your machinery. To move that 10-ton machine you simply plug in your airline and take it away. It really is that simple.
The top picture shows a typical air bearing and caster kit, with high lift bearings onboard, a remote control unit for central air flow control, and all necessary fittings. The caster modules of this kit are very thin and have a profile height of around 1¼ inches - enabling them to slide under machines with low height clearance.
The bottom picture is of a typical round steel system that is designed to have the caster modules fitted directly to the machine itself. This is a tremendous tool for situations where machinery has to moved repetitively. Leave the modules permanently fixed to the machine and simply plug in your air line and move it instantly.
You can move loads of up to 100 tons and more with virtually no effort at all.
