Air Caster™ leads the way in the design and manufacture of custom material handling equipment to meet the heavy move requirements and challenges with the aerospace industry. With the capacity to move material weighing in excess of 150 tons, our equipment is custom engineered for each aerospace manufacturer’s unique application.
Transporting large, heavy vehicles in aerospace manufacturing, such as apparatus for aviation, space flight, planes, helicopters, turbines, etc., can be a vexing problem. However Air Caster’s proprietary technology makes bulky aerospace materials literally float across the plant with ease.
Aerospace solutions – From engineering and manufacturing a 25-foot-diameter industrial turntable for moving a fighter jet across the plant floor, to designing and producing a remote controlled, 100-ton platform transporter for a moving a rocket booster, Air Caster custom engineers for any aerospace material handling need.
Some examples of our product groups that can be fully customized and built for aerospace applications include:
- Heavy load transporters
- Industrial turntables
- Adjustable height work platforms
- Portable gantry systems
- Load lifters
Engineered to order – Our engineers tailor the performance of our products to meet your specific needs. We work closely with your engineers, production logistics personnel, and Tier One and Tier Two suppliers to deliver the most reliable, safe, ergonomic and durable material handling equipment in the industry. We’ve developed specific heavy material handling solutions for companies such as Boeing, Bombardier, Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman and more.
Pneumatic and more – Air Caster equipment has the advantage of being pneumatically powered, which is the company’s core competence. Pneumatics require no electricity, are clean running, and require very little maintenance, and can be designed based on customer requirements. However, our solutions can be tailored to your specific handling need, as we are equally adept at engineering hydraulic, electro-mechanical or mechanical material handling solutions as well.
Durability – Designed to last, Air Caster equipment is built specifically for industrial environments using all steel construction. Our applications are designed to the highest safety standards, able to withstand heavy loads, high cycle times and frequent fork truck abuse.
Quality – No matter your industry or customer, we pride ourselves on the quality of products we design and build. Whether it’s the materials we use, overall function, weld appearance, paint and finish, or packaging, we deliver excellence.
