This moving equipment is also commonly known as Air Casters. They are a rigging system that can be used to carry heavy loads.
Simply place bearing modules beneath a heavy object, and introduce compressed air. The modules will then lift the mass from the ground. Now you can easily float the load to a new destination.
How To Use Air Bearings
In this video our client demonstrates the entire process of setting up their air handling system. As you can see, in just a matter of minutes an expensive piece of machinery can be made mobile.
The bearings fit beneath the profile of a heavy load similar to how tires go beneath a car. In this case the machine is so heavy even wheeled casters would not be enough to support its weight.
Once an air hose is connected to the bearings, it will feed a supply of compressed air. The air will flow out of the bearings, and generate lift against the floor. When they lift from the ground, bearings reduce the effective weight of a mass by 99.5%.
