Standard AeroGo air cushion systems

Load Module Systems™

Load Modules™ and Load Module Systems™ utilize the efficiency of the air bearing to lift and move loads of any size, shape or weight. Load Module Systems™, one of AeroGo’s most versatile products, are made up of four or more Load Modules™. Positioned under any load shape, they provide lift and support wherever it’s needed. With Load Module™ capacity ranging from 1/2 ton to 60 tons each, Load Modules™ are available to move anything that isn’t anchored down. The Load Modules™ thin profile allows AeroGo’s products to be easily inserted under most equipment, eliminating the need for a separate jacking system, as well as providing vertical lift when inflated. Unlike caster wheels, which resist changes in direction, Load Module Systems™ are truly omnidirectional, requiring no additional force to change direction. Load Module Systems™ are lightweight and easily positioned under a load. Control Consoles provide individual pressure regulation to compensate for unequal load distribution. Because Load Modules™ float on a nearly frictionless film of air, loads can often be moved manually, without the need for tow vehicles or winches.

GAPMASTER™ Aero-Caster

The GAPMASTER™ Aero-Caster® is especially developed for the smooth movement of loads over gaps and steps in the floor surface. Originally developed for theatre applications to move stage sets and theatre seating, the GAPMASTER™ Aero-Caster® can also be effective in autoclave loading, moving dies over t-slots, moving loads into and out of elevators or onto flush-mount scales, lift tables, turntables and pit covers.

A perforated membrane encloses the Aero-Caster® GAPMASTER™ and meters the rate of air flow. Upon encountering a gap, rapid outflow of air is prevented by the metering action of this membrane. Since the load is actually floating over the surface, the potential for floor damage is substantially reduced.

Aero-Pallet™

Systems Aero-Pallets™ are designed to easily move and precisely position heavy loads on a nearly frictionless film of air, eliminating operator strain and damage to load or floor. Their flexibility is ideal for Lean-Flow manufacturing applications as well as production support and testing. Catalog models handle loads from 230kg (500 pounds) to 14 tons – and engineered solutions can address almost any load or configuration. Optional handles, throttle controls, and no-load wheels make it even easier to operate the Aero-Pallet™ loaded or unloaded. AeroGo products are reliable and virtually maintenance free – all you need is air.

You will move loads less expensively than the total operating cost of other load moving systems. Aero-Pallets™ replace or assist expensive rollers, overhead conveyors, cranes or forklifts, creating a better workspace for assembly personnel. Their omni-directional advantage allows individual assemblies to be moved in any direction in or out of the line – for testing, repairs or special steps. Aero-Pallets™ are available with fixed or automatic chocks for super-easy handling of round paper or steel rolls and are easily modified for deck tooling or lift tables. They are ideal in cleanrooms and hazardous or explosive environments because the only power required is compressed air.

AirShuttle™

The AirShuttle™ is a variant of the Aero-Pallet™ and includes 4 Aero-Casters®, a T-handle, fingertip controls, a guide wheel, and no-load wheels.The AirShuttle™ packages the most popular options with a super easy control handle, making it the easiest and most capable Aero-Pallet™ ever made. The base model is rated at 2,5 tons and is available from stock in a variety of sizes. The AirShuttle™ replace or assist expensive rollers, overhead conveyors, cranes or forklifts, creating a better workspace for assembly personnel. Their omni-directional advantage allows individual assemblies to be moved in any direction in or out of the line – for testing, repairs or special steps. They are ideal in cleanrooms and hazardous or explosive environments because the only power required is compressed air.

Aero-Plank™

Systems Aero-Planks™ are designed for use with loads having minor variations in width but large variations in length. Set-up is easy and fast, requiring only one air hose connection. Aero-Planks™ can be used in combinations of two or more to move long complex machines such as printing presses or mail sorting machinery. Using Aero-Planks™ avoids time consuming and costly work interruptions, and machine disassembly and reassembly.

Aero-Planks™ are available in varying lengths and widths to accommodate almost any load configuration. Aero-Planks™ are frequently used in flexible manufacturing systems and assembly lines to replace cumbersome track, rail or in-floor conveyor systems. Aero-Planks™ offers unprecedented flexibility with omnidirectional movement and can free-up cranes and forklifts for other tasks. Uneven loads can be automatically adjusted using a single air pressure regulator in combination with built-in active flow controls.

Rollmaster™

AeroGo’s Rollmaster™ literally floats heavy paper rolls on a thin film of compressed air, helping paper processors and web printers save time, manpower and money. Our patented technology makes it possible for one person to easily maneuver heavy loads without the use of a forklift or floor track system. As little as one kilo of push can move a 1000 kilos of weight, so one person can smoothly transport, rotate and precisely position even the largest and heaviest paper rolls.

The Rollmaster™ uses standard shop air to instabtly float and move heavy rolls in any direction. It is equipped with a fixed, full width handle, guide wheels, pressure regulator and on/off ball valve. An optional handle mounted air control is available. With the AeroGo Rollmaster™, you get easy, dependable, omnidirectional roll control without hazardous fumes and noise. AVT Europe also manufactures a complete line of custom-engineered models for soft paper rolls and other roll moving applications.

Rollmover™

AeroGo’s Rollmover™ literally floats heavy paper rolls, metal sheet coils and cable reels on a thin film of compressed air. Our patented technology makes it possible for one person to easily manoeuvre heavy loads without the use of a forklift or floor track system. As little as one kilo of push can move 500 kilograms of weight, so one person can smoothly transport, rotate and precisely position even the largest and heaviest paper, plastic, sheet metal or coil rolls.

Just place one Rollmover™ section under each end of the roll, and use standard shop air to instantly float and move the roll in any direction. When the move is complete, the Aero-Casters® quickly deflate, and the light weight sections are carried to the next job. With the AeroGo Rollmover™, you get easy, dependable, omnidirectional roll control without hazardous fumes and noise. And, with no moving parts to wear out, the Rollmover™ requires little or no maintenance.
