Aerofilm Systems supplies ’muscle-men’ based on air for over 25 years!

Internal transportation can be improved in almost every company. Right now, air cushion transport is only used in very difficult circumstances. But often, air cushions can supply enormous improvements. for example, in cases where wheel transportation does not function well and a replacement or a renewal is planned. And installations that cannot be transported can easily be moved by air cushion transport.

The air cushions are filled with compressed air, which is released between the air cushion and the floor. An air film is formed, a thin layer of air, that enables practically zero contact between the bottom of the air cushion and the floor. The air cushion with the object on top is now flowing. The object on the air cushion can now easily be moved with a friction of approx. 0.001 of the object’s weight. This means that 1.000 kgs of weight use only 1 kg force of movement. Larger objects can be moved by using more or bigger air cushions. There are various types of air cushions depending on the application. In a great many situations, an air cushion provides a clear improvement compared to conventional means of transportation like horizontal moving in multiple directions.
