Aerofilm STARTERSET Air Skates | Air Cushion Transport System For Sale

Aerofilm STARTERSET Air Skates

Air skates, air cushions or load modules are pneumatic elements that can be placed under objects, which enable the object to be moved and positioned in any horizontal direction with almost no friction.

Air skates use compressed air to operate. A thin film of air is created between the floor surface and the air bearing, resulting in a virtual friction-free transport method and making it possible to move heavy loads and objects with very little effort.
