RIGGING EQUIPMENT FOR MOVING HEAVY LOADS ON A
BEARING OF AIR
Air Casters are great
rigging equipment for moving heavy loads, machinery or just about any load. Packaged
in a four-module system, we offer a standard tool called a
"RIG SET". A
Rig Set consist of four air bearing load modules, Interconnecting lines
and a control box to regulate each air bearing station individually to balance out
off-set and uneven loads.
"Air Bearings & Air Casters
sometimes referred to as Air
Casters provide omni-directional movement of Heavy Loads
These values are for smooth sealed concrete w/ good light reflective quality, some surface deterioration, floor cracks max of 1/16" wide & filled expansion joints. (Maximum Air consumption dependent on floor conditions).
Models MLS 8, 12 and 15 are shown with both cast aluminum top plates and also extruded aluminum top plates.
As a Rigging Tool
among your fleet of Rigging equipment. Sometimes referred to as Air
Skates, the Air Casters can be used in place of machinery skates or
together with them to move machines or loads. The Air Caster can't operate efficiently on porous
floors, but do keep floor surfaces in good shape as they minimize the
floor loading. Air Bearings can move your heaviest loads
omni-directionally and provide an ergonomic means of moving and
positioning loads that use to require a lot of physical brunt force to
move. Most loads under 20,000 pounds can be easily moved manually without
the assistance from conventional material handling equipment.
Retro-Fit existing frames or
Bearing Load Module can be set directly upon, or be fastened to the
underside of an existing or newly designed load carrying structure. Each
Air Caster can be used along with a carts existing wheels or casters, use
the wheels to move empty carts and the Air Bearings to move fully loaded
carts or vehicles. The Air Bearing System is ideal for use in floating
heavy loads into place then de-energizing and resting on 'Landing Pads'
for a position set position while work or assembly is performed.
USE IN TURN TABLES
Bearing use in Turntables is beneficially for several reasons; to reduce
the co-efficient of friction during the rotation of the loaded table. In
most cases, manual rotation is possible saving cost on powered drive
systems. With the short lift of the top plate once the air bearings are
energized, the rest position becomes an positive stop holding the table
top in place during load and unload transfers or while work or assembly is
performed. With the low profile of Air Casters, Turn Tables can be build
to much smaller heights than conventional wheel or cam supported tables.
BUILD YOUR OWN AIR PALLET
our standard Rig Set described above (Air Casters, hoses, and controller)
and build them into a framed Pallet. Equip a Push/Pull handle and you now
have an ergonomic air pallet that can be interfaced with your loads with
very little set-up time to position. Turn Scissor
Lift Tables in Mobile Lift Platforms!
All of American Solving's Air Bearing systems are designed to
certain capacities and specifications (see above). Similar size units are to be
laid out in a triangular or square configuration so as to maintain the center of
gravity within its confines. Keep the Air Bearings as far apart as possible in
an effort to minimize taller loads from swaying or tipping. Cover at least 60%
of the surface of the module to give a
firm footing and to prevent tipping of the load.
