Air Caster Beams

Many industries deal with heavy equipment or objects that frequently need to be moved and have little space available underneath them. Because of the extreme low build height of minimum 1 inch they are ideal to (lift) and move different sizes of objects that can be picked up from underneath. A minimum of two beams can be used to transport different kinds of loads, more beams can be applied to handle larger loads or more complex shapes.

Air caster beams are rectangular shaped transport devices that contain a minimum of two air casters. The width is usually determined by the diameter of the air caster used, the length often varies. The beams can be equipped with wheels for unloaded movement. Optional lift cushions can be added to enable the beams to lift higher in order to pick up the load. Quite similar to a pallet truck. The air regulators can be installed within the beams or placed into an external cabinet for fine-tuning the air casters and activating the lift cushions.
