Military & Defense Applications
Air bearings are the secret to success when failure isn’t an option. Unparalleled in their weight capabilities, air casters & bearings move 1000 lbs of load for every 1 lb of force applied.
Pound-for-pound, compressed air systems exponentially outperform the ability of cranes and forklifts. Hovair products can quickly lift and transport loads with incredible accuracy.
We have enjoyed a long history in providing load moving systems for military & defense applications, partnering with organizations such as NASA, Lockheed Martin, and the U.S. Navy.
Aircraft Transport – Precision movement of multiple fighter jets into uniform position.
Rocket & Missile Assembly – Transporters that offer controlled rotation and handling of large rocket motor sections.
Offshore Storage – Move ships across dry land for reserve storage. Our Transporters cut transportation time by nearly 90%, and saved the U.S. Navy money and man-hours.
Hovair Products Used In Defense Applications
Tuggers – External air-powered drive unit. Connects with docking plate to then supply compressed air. It can then be driven and steer loads to new locations.
Transporters – Custom built to handle the shape and weight of a load. These devices can be remote operated, and can easily maneuver into tight spaces.
Lift Decks – Allows unit to slide under a load, then lift it away from its berth before transporting.
Turntables – Provides rotation capabilities for areas with limited work space.
