What is ASME B30.1 and Why Does it Matter to You?
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is an association with a worldwide reputation for documenting and releasing product manufacturing and design standards. Their release relevant to air bearings is called ASME B30.1, the American National Standard for Air Bearings. Manufacturers who meet the ASME B30.1 requirements have made a commitment to follow the rules.
What that means for you is that you can expect that ASME compliant air bearings are of quality design and manufacture, which means they will work for you as specified and quality construction translates to extended lifespan. Longer life means fewer replacements. All of which is a big WIN for you! AeroGo air casters meet or beat ASME specifications, and the release of ASME B30.1 encourages continual improvement as we design new air bearings. What that really means is that AeroGo air bearings get better and better, and you get the best air casters in the world.
