Aerofilm Air Caster Transport Platforms

Aerofilm Systems Air Caster Transport Platforms Overview

Each industry has different transportation needs in material handling. An air caster transport vehicle can be designed and built entirely to the client’s specifications to move heavy or sensitive objects on a thin film of air. Air caster transport platforms can replace expensive cranes, roller conveyors and forklifts, either completely or partially. The fact that you can move the air caster vehicle in every horizontal direction and accurately position them, makes them the ideal transport method to move and replace heavy components.

There are many different shapes and sizes of heavy duty transport trolley available and the load can be picked up by the
transport vehicle or directly loaded onto it. It is also possible to have a sub-frame or stillage underneath the object that can be picked up by the transport vehicle.

The air caster transport platform vehicles can be equipped with:

  • Air powered driven wheels; no more manual movement
  • Remote controls; to control the movement from a distance
  • Automated guidance systems; to create an Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV)
  • Lift tables; to provide an extra high lift
  • Master – Slave system; to enable cooperation between multiple vehicles
  • On-board air supply; to make the vehicle self-sufficient
