Air Skids allow for the safe movement of your materials. Air skids, placed under a load for movement, can be used to move almost anything. An optional pendant control provides "Dead Man" control over the air skid system.
Capacities are dependent upon air bearing size and quantity.
Single Bearing Air Skids
- Are used in sets of three or four (or more) units.
- Can be bolted under machine or fixture.
- Can be simply spaced apart to accommodate a variety of load sizes.
- Can be connected directly to plant air. Typical air supply plumbing includes:
- Main air supply hose
- Control console or manifold assembly
- Connecting hoses
Two Air Bearing Air Skids and other configurations available.
