Ground-based transporters in combination with air casters provide manufacturers a means to float heavy subassemblies rather than lifting them into the air. The method is much safer for employees and significantly reduces component mating process time from hours to minutes. The July issue of Industrial Machinery Digest features Mike Brown’s article “Mating Equipment on an Assembly Line without Suspending Heavy Components’ on pages 36-39.

In pharma cleanroom applications, air casters are compact and highly maneuverable, which means they can power some notable process
improvements and efficiency starting with fitting in the footprint of the
equipment. Read more here.
Demand for additional classrooms and training facilities in the education sector has skyrocketed. Modular and prefabricated structures have emerged to answer the demand quickly and cost-effectively. AeroGo air casters optimize production for modular manufacturers. Read all about it here.
For aerospace applications, air casters work similar to air hockey but in a more controlled manner, making it possible to move heavy, delicate satellites in a smooth and precise manner without damaging epoxy floors and while keeping the clean room environment pristine.

Moving huge transformers, boilers, and pressure vessels, through production lines without causing slowdowns, or even shutdowns, can pose significant challenges. However, many companies do not realize that this type of equipment is easy to manoeuver around using air caster technology. In this article the technology is explained, and examples of how it works and eases the movement of heavy, complicated shapes are given and endorsed.
