Remote Control Units



Remote Control Units are available for virtually all types of air bearings and air casters. These units give the operator total control of all supplied to the system as well the ability to control the air flow to each individual air bearing from a central point.

Remote control units are optional on nearly all air bearing kit systems, and the ARC unit is standard on “high-lift”
B-bearing kit systems.
