Learn how an air caster powered turntable operates.
See a multi position turntable in action to learn more about how it works.
The AX010 family of heavy duty turntables packs up to 150,000 lbs. of rotating power into a compact footprint. Equipped with a sealed slewing-style bearing with an external gear, the turntable includes an encoder for 1/8 in. positional accuracy.

Watch in amazement as railroad cars, aircraft and other heavy objects "float" on a film compressed air. The video also shows an air bearing turntable in operation.
Application Spotlight: Heavy Duty Turntable for Transmission Maker -- Airfloat designed and built an air caster turntable with two multi-position container tilts for a maker of commercial-duty transmissions. Each tilt can rotate 180° and tilt containers up to 30° in each direction, giving operators greater control of the parts replenishment process.

Align Production Systems' glass racks are designed to efficiently and safely store finished glass products. Glass rack turntables are high speed, so that no time is wasted between racks. The racks rotate to bring around a new rack, while the finished rack is simultaneously moved saving time and effort.
Robotics require efficient systems to maximize their potential output. With full automation and PLC interfacing, our work cell turntables can move precisely at high speeds, optimizing robotic systems. Remove the delay of changing out racks, pieces, and more with our industrial turntables, allowing the robots to constantly function without unnecessary breaks.
Application spotlight: A four-position air caster turntable with secondary container rotates for parts replenishment on an assembly line.
This innovative system consists of a 7.5-ft. mechanical turntable mounted to a scale. The equipment is capable of handling loads up to 20,000 lbs. and is actuated via an electric motor and pneumatically engaged drive. The self-contained system is mounted to a half-inch-thick steel pad with built-in lifting lugs, making it highly transportable.

Speed your industrial painting operation with an air caster turntable. This 10,000-lb. capacity turntable has built it fork pockets, making it easy to relocate within your operation.
A two-minute primer on Airfloat air bearing technology. Learn how tens of thousands of pounds are routinely floated on air, friction-free, by leading manufacturers. Airfloat equipment will lessen your organization's dependence on costly, slow-moving overhead cranes and dangerous forklifts.
Speed up your process with high speed industrial turntables, which use mechanical or air caster technology to rotate and position loads quickly and safely. High speed turntables are often used in rack handling operations, so that systems can continuously rack without the need to pause.
