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.
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.
For objects weighing more than 4 tonnes we recommend using internal drives to control them correctly and safely. Information can be found under the section Internal drives.
