Some of the most efficient and cost-effective handling and moving machine equipment systems in today's industrial environment are powered by compressed air. Air powered (pneumatic) handling equipment offers the power to handle and move heavy objects and machines up to 400 tons and beyond. Our material handling equipment can lift and move everything from large rolls of paper to heavy machinery. Here are two such pneumatic handling systems that are driven by compressed air. To the left is a low profile handling system which comes in kit form and includes everything you need to set up a handling system right out the box. To the right is a standard pneumatic handling system, again in kit form so you can be up and running quickly. Our web site at hovair.com has a series of videos showing some of our handling and heavy load moving products in action. See the links below. Hovair Systems are a leading air bearing manufacturer; we are heavy machinery equipment movers with 50 years of experience in air bearing and heavy equipment manufacturing and design. Did you know that an air bearing load handling system will make heavy load moving so much easier, and way more cost effective? Hovair Systems air bearing powered systems are designed to lift and move loads and machines that are too heavy for conventional methods such as forklift trucks, overhead gantry and crane methods. Air powered (pneumatic) load handling systems work in a series of four or more, they lift your load away from the floor much the same as a Hovercraft. Our products use the same principle: air film technology.
Using our wide range of handling products and equipment you can now move loads and machines of any shape, size or weight using just a little of the regular compressed air in your shop. These systems are so easy to use. Anyone can use them: guys, gals, even the boss. We have a great range of starter kits available complete with all hoses and necessary fittings. When your load capacities grow, simply add a couple more modules to take the strain and it is business as usual. You can move loads of up to 100 tons and more with virtually no effort at all. Move your loads into places that a forklift truck or overhead crane just cannot get to. There is no limit to the tight spaces you can maneuver into. Check out our main web site and look for the demo videos which will show you just how easy these handling systems are to use.
