AeroGo is a global leader in providing innovative load-moving solutions to move heavy, awkward or delicate objects. They manufacture air bearings, a technology that uses compressed air to reduce friction and make it possible to float immensely heavy objects, often called "industrial air hockey".
Machine tools can often be prohibitively difficult to relocate after installation, becoming immoveable “monuments,” distorting facility layouts and eroding manufacturing productivity, capacity and throughput. One way to easily move CNC machines and others is by using air bearings or machine skates.

A “Behind this Door” video offers a peek into a small — but critical — piece of Intel’s manufacturing process: Assembly Test Technology Development (ATTD) factories. In these factories, engineers research and develop the latest testing equipment and processes before they pass them on to Intel's high-volume manufacturing factories, where tens of millions of chips are tested every day. Especially note the video between 1:15-1:36.

Satellites, rockets, and orbital capsules around the world—from Kourou Launch Base in French Guyana to ISRO in India or NASA at Cape Canaveral in the United States—are likely to be moved through a cleanroom on a nearly invisible AeroGo air caster. The air caster aka air bearing has become a load-moving staple for space agencies worldwide. Air casters ensure vibration-free movement to safeguard sensitive, precision-calibrated equipment and prevent damage to epoxy floors. In use for more than 50 years, see for yourself how air casters mobilize a satellite as it travels on the ground by visiting the AeroGo booth #442 at Satellite 2021.
Founded in 1967, AeroGo manufacturers air bearings and satellite equipment for use during assembly, test and pre-launch. An experienced in-house engineering team provides application-specific load movement systems for satellites, test equipment, rockets, missiles, capsules, etc. AeroGo is a turnkey provider.

In a cleanroom environment, there is no margin for error when a single particulate of dust can be catastrophic. Such facilities require a material handling solution that can ensure safe movement and positioning of sensitive and expensive equipment without damaging the equipment or floor surface or injuring personnel. The transporting device? Air casters.

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.
