SHIPYARD

Launch a mega yacht

LOAD: 2,998 tons

SOLUTION
Numerous load modules with heavy duty Aero-Casters

BENEFIT

  • Slow, steady, controlled movement
  • Advanced design of the air casters allowed the ship to make 90 degree turns (impossible to achieve with conventional rollers, rails, or skid beams)
  • Ultra-low ground loading eliminated the need for pilings and other ground reinforcing techniques required by other methods

SHIP BUILDING

Provide a single material handling solution to handle a variety of load weights and shapes.

LOAD: up to 130,000 lbs.

SOLUTION
Air Caster Rigging System with custom interfaces for mono-hull, dual hull options.

BENEFIT

  • Omnidirectional, precise movement compensates for tight clearances
  • Modular system makes it possible to move mono-hull or catamarans through the manufacturing facility and out to launch
