Air Bearings

Air Caster™ Air Bearings

Air Caster™ air bearings move loads ranging from a few hundred pounds to heavy loads of more than 150 tons (That’s more than 300,000 pounds or more than 75 cars). Genuine Air Caster™ air bearings are made with a tough, wear-resistant urethane diaphragm, giving superior performance compared to other air film devices.

The diaphragm is securely attached to a corrosion resistant steel backing. For convenience, all Air Caster™ air bearing have a female pipe thread air inlet for direct connection, and a seal ring for slide out mounting.

Applications for heavy move equipment

Air bearings can be found on the following Air Caster™ products:

  • Air bearing load movers
  • Air bearing load lifters
  • Air pallets and air bearing transporters
  • Industrial air bearing turntables
