Auto manufacturer needs strongest possible solutions

Situation: One of the world’s largest automakers needed eight conveyor systems with tilt tables that would carry any type of container and withstand any foreseeable challenges.

Solution: Air Caster™ solutions include all-steel construction to hold up against the “fork truck abuse” coming from constant loading/unloading of containers and racks. We furnished custom-engineered truck floor mounted bumpers to prevent conveyor damage.

We also developed heavy duty conveyor rollers that will work with most types of containers. Customers like that we can accommodate their unique material handling challenges.
