Permanently Installed Air Caster System
- Takes very little space underneath your object
- Object can be permanently moved because the air casters are embedded in the design
- Ideal OEM solution
- No harmful exhaust gasses, just regular compressed air
- In stock item
This air caster system is permanently installed underneath the object itself or its support frame to create a fixed air caster transport solution. These systems are mainly chosen for frequent usage in production processes.
An embedded air caster system is a package that consists of just the air casters and an air regulator.
In order to guarantee maximum stability, at least three (but preferably four) air casters should be placed under the load. The air regulator ensures that the compressed air is correctly divided amongst all different air casters to compensate the weight above and move the load.
For objects weighing more than 9.000 lbs we recommend to use external drives to control the load properly and safely. These can be found in this brochure under the section External drives.
Depending on the weight that needs to be transported, the size, number of air casters and regulator is chosen.
The permanently installed air caster system is a very safe and cost effective solution to optimize your production process.
