Aluminum Transporters are air pallets that mobilize standard loads. They are easily maneuver in any direction, and prove to be a cost-effective means of transport.
Aluminum Vehicle Transporters are powered by Air Bearings, which can glide loads across a surface. Size and weight capacities for air bearings will vary. A standard set of four A-type bearings generally supports a capacity of 4,000 lbs at dimensions of 4ft x 3 ft.
Transporters can be designed to different needs and specifications. However, they are ideal when applied to standard sized load moving. They provide a swift and convenient means of moving objects across a factory or warehouse floor.

Watch this demonstration Video to see our products in use. Transporters can be fitted with A-Type or B-Type B-type air bearings. Air flow is controlled through a manifold at one end of the transporter, where an air hose attaches.
A-type air bearings are designed to move loads laterally across floor surfaces with “just enough” lift to cause the load to clear the floor and float smoothly.
B-type air bearings are designed to lift loads vertically off their base. They move laterally across surfaces, then are dropped into position. They function the same as A-type bearings, but lift two to three times as much when pressurized.
Shown here are pictures of a transporter being used in a safety crash testing facility. Transporters can quickly align vehicles into different positions, and offered more accuracy and time efficiency than forklifts.
In addition to their overall strength, lift bags have an interlocking surface. Therefore, they are able to “grip” loads. Excessive gaps can be briged with plywood or lumber.
