Aerofilm Air Caster technology
Freedom to Move
That is exactly what Air Casters, also known as Air Cushions or Air Skates offer. Ultimate freedom in moving heavy loads. With a suitable floor and sufficient compressed air, every horizontal movement is possible, without restrictions and regardless of weight.
For years AVT Europe NV and Aerofilm Systems have joined forces to offer customers the best possible solution. Combining knowledge and experience has led to even better machines. Both with roots in engineering and now with AVT Europe NV as specialist in Transport Solutions and Aerofilm Systems as specialist in Air caster technology.
Air Casters are an ideal solution for moving large, heavy, sensitive, or special objects. The object to be moved is hovering on a wafer-thin air film. This air film is created by precisely controlled outflow of air from the membrane. First the mass is lifted and then a thin air film is formed. This air film causes the object to float, reducing friction to a thousandth. Once floating, it can be easily moved.
