What are Air casters?
Moving heavy objects
Air casters (also known as Air skates, Air bearings) are an ideal solution for moving heavy objects, as well as large, sensitive, or important object. A precisely controlled flow of air from the caster’s membrane creates a wafer-thin film of air that helps the object float, reducing friction so it can be easily moved. An Air caster system offers a great alternative to wheels, rails or cranes. If there is enough compressed air and the floor is suitable, the weight possibilities are unlimited with an Air caster system. On the page How do Air casters work, we explain exactly how moving heavy objects with Air casters will work?
