Product description

The heavy vehicle industry often has the challenge of moving their products efficiently through the factory. For this purpose, an industrial turntable can be used. This is a system that uses air casters or water casters to rotate heavy objects. The turntable can be built to the clients specifications. The application possibilities are enormously wide ranging. Just think of rotating and turning trucks, trains and cars inside the plant. Industrial turntables using air/water casters offer an excellent solution for the storage of heavy marine cables after production.

Turntables are manufactured with an aluminium,
steel or wooden top plate placed onto a steel sub-frame. In this frame the air or water casters are mounted upside down so that they raise the turntable structure and create a film of air prior to rotating. A power drive motor rotates the table. Because the air/water casters float the load there is little force needed to move the turntable. Due to the low building height, these turntables can be installed easily with little modification to your current infrastructure. The turntable can be built both into or onto the floor. Very little maintenance is needed because of the simple construction and low number of parts.
The air/water caster turntables can be equipped with:

Power drive; to automatically rotate the turntable
Remote controls; to control the movement from a distance
Automated positioning; to automatically start and stop at the right position
PLC/ DCS integration; to be operated fully
Automatically

Main Advantages:
- High reliability
- Low maintenance
- Low build height
- Energy efficient
- Plug and play
- Customisation possible to fully meet the requirements
- Can be fully integrated into your current automation systems (PLC, DCS)

Air Powered Drives External

The movement on air casters can be compared to the movement on ice. It requires quite some force to overcome the initial inertia to start moving heavy objects. Once in motion, controlling and stopping them also requires a lot of power. The rule of thumb with air caster transportation is that above 4 ...read more

Air Caster Mobile Cranes

Because these cranes operate on air casters they arent restricted to rails and have complete free horizontal movement. In this case transportation is possible in the X, Y and Z position. The low vibration characteristics of the air casters means that mobile cranes can transport the objects more steadily ...read more

Air Caster Roll Transporters

The internal movement of rolls is usually both cumbersome and labour-intensive. Paper/metal/plastic rolls, cable reels, coils, and other types of round objects, can be easily moved using roll transporters on air casters. The roll transporters are an excellent alternative to forklifts or overhead cranes. ...read more

Air Caster Transport Platforms

Each industry has different transportation needs in material handling. An air caster transport vehicle can be designed and built entirely to the clients specifications to move heavy or sensitive objects on a thin film of air. Air caster vehicles can replace expensive cranes, roller conveyors and forklifts, ...read more

Air Caster Beams

Many industries deal with heavy equipment or objects that frequently need to be moved and have little space available underneath them. Because of the extreme low build height of minimum 25mm they are ideal to (lift) and move different sizes of objects that can be picked up from underneath. A minimum ...read more

Modular Air Caster System

The purpose of this system is to use it for less frequent movement of objects and is ready to use straight out of the box. Just connect it to your facilities air supply and go! It takes up very little space when compared to alternative transport methods and can therefore be stored very easily. The modular ...read more

Permanently Installed Air Caster System

This system is permanently installed underneath the object itself or its support frame to create a fixed air caster transport solution. These systems are mainly chosen for frequent usage in production processes. An embedded air caster system is a package that consists of just the air casters and an ...read more

Air Powered Drives (internal)

Once in motion, controlling and stopping them also requires a lot of power. The rule of thumb with air caster transportation is that above 4 ...read more

Air Regulators

Air regulators are used to control the compressed air before it goes into the air casters. Most of the loads dont have their centre of gravity exactly in the middle. The pressure can be regulated very precisely for each individual air caster to get the object in balance before it is being transported. The ...read more

Lift Cushion

Lift cushions can be used for a wide range of purposes and the advantages are enormous in comparison to cylinders. The lift cushions can be used in horizontally and vertically position to lift, push, spread and fix different objects. Lift Casters are hermetically sealed cushions made of rubber with ...read more

Air Caster/ Air Cushion/ Air Skate

Air casters are being used in all kinds of industries and applications worldwide. Both standard and custom made. The systems are typically used for internal movement of objects ranging from 100 kgs to over 2.500 metric tons. The air casters exist of flexible rubber membrane that is fed by compressed ...read more
