Air Caster Roll Transporters

The internal movement of rolls is usually both cumbersome and labour-intensive.

 

Paper/metal/plastic rolls, cable reels, coils, and other types of round objects, can be easily moved using roll transporters on air casters. The air caster roll transporters are an excellent alternative to forklifts or overhead cranes. Also, the wheels of cars, trucks etc. can be transported using roll transporters. The greatest benefit is that the air caster roll transporter is hardly any larger in size than the roll that needs to be transported.

 

The roll transporter on air casters can be built to the client’s specifications and makes it possible to move very heavy rolls, irrespective of the material and size of the roll. The rolls can be placed directly on the roll transporter or, thanks to variable forks and integrated lift cushions, can be picked up directly from the floor.
