AIR FILM TRANSPORTERS
AIR BEARING PLATFORM TRANSPORTERS THAT FLOAT ON AIR
Air Film Transporters from SOLVING can be adapted to suit most applications as it is built up from standard units. Air Film Transporters are of a low profile design and it is small and light in relation to its loading capacity. Maintenance requirements are low as the transporter has few moving parts.
Four Air Bearings, or more, are mounted under a load carrying structure. The transporter frame is built up from welded structural tubing covered by a checkered plate.
The control is performed from a panel, on the transporter, where all regulators are clearly identified by symbols. All pneumatic components are mounted in a control unit easily accessible when the cover is opened. Hand held controls are also available, from umbilical attached pendants to remote (wire-less) units and/or fully automated PLC-controlled devices.
The drive unit (optional) is mounted under the load carrying frame and is built up of four main parts. Drive units come in many different steering capabilities and can even pivot to drive the transporter straight sideways. External drive units are also available, which helps keep the transporter to an even lower profile or allows the operator to disconnect it and use it over multiple load carrying frames. Mostly pneumatic, Drive units are also offered in electric powered and can be equipped with automatic tracking software or laser guidance.
