A leader in the design and manufacturing of custom ergonomic material handling equipment, Air Caster™ meets specific agricultural industry requirements and industry challenges in mind.
Agricultural Solutions: With the capacity to move material and equipment weighing in excess of 150 tons, our Air Caster solutions lighten the heaviest loads of agricultural manufacturers. Our wide-ranging agricultural applications solve the complex ergonomic challenges by piling multi-purpose farm equipment into Air Caster air-bearing solutions.
We can meet literally any agricultural material handling encounter that comes along. For instance, we engineered and built several platforms to allow a customer to move agricultural equipment seamlessly down its assembly line. The product started out as a frame assembly, and then was built up as it moved down along the line. This allowed the customer full freedom on location and constant movement of the units during the process. A set of wheeled casters was installed on the units to allow them to roll from the outlet end of the assembly line back to the beginning of the line. The final load weight on these units was approximately 40,000 pounds.
Some examples of our product groups that can be fully customized and built for agricultural companies include:
- Air platforms
- Heavy load transporters
- Adjustable height work platforms
- Self-Contained Transporter 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 and production personnel to deliver the most reliable, safe, ergonomic and durable material handling equipment in the agricultural industry. We’ve developed specific heavy material handling solutions for companies such as John Deere, Caterpillar, Case, Volvo, Claas, 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.
