Watch how an Airfloat transporter system safely moved electronics shelters of 90,000 lbs. in this custom application. The system can be easily reconfigured for varying shelter lengths and capacities.
A custom Airfloat solution for a nuclear contractor, this machine uses air caster technology to float loads up to 400,000 lbs. in any lateral direction. Lifting jacks raise and lower the magnets, while also keeping them level. Steered by a wireless controller, its capable of moving in complex movement patterns.
Airfloat's Pneumatic Tuggers are designed for use with air bearing-equipped transporters and platforms, providing safe, easy and controlled movement of large loads. Full 180° steering allows the load to be rotated about its center. A quick attachment feature allows the tugger to connect or disconnect in seconds.

A leading manufacturer of locomotives uses Airfloat throughout its assembly process. The air caster transporter seen in this video attaches the cab to the rest of the locomotive. Mechanical drive units are used to maneuver the cab into position, while telescoping post lifts raise it to required height.
Effortlessly move and position heavy paper rolls with an Airfloat roll transporter. Float rolls up to 4,000 lbs. and 72 inches in diameter on a film of compressed air. Great for maneuvering in tight places where forklifts can't go.
Airfloat engineers created a “floating” assembly line that utilizes custom-designed and custom-built air caster transporters, or AGVs (short for “automated guided vehicles”). The bus-size machines harness the power of compressed air to float 12,000-lb. aircraft fuselages between assembly stations.
Here, a floating assembly line utilizes custom-designed and custom-built air caster transporters to move combine heads from one assembly station to the next. The built-in “Pac-Man” upenders provide the option to rotate each head to the desired angle, allowing workers to more easily access the underside for a customized, ergonomic work environment.
Watch as an assembly transporter moves a heavy locomotive across the manufacturing floor.
Airfloat has done it again! We’ve re-engineered our classic paper roll transporter, allowing it to easily move and position rolls of varying sizes and weights, up to 5,000 lbs. The operator slides the forked platform around the paper roll, then closes the forks around it. Lifting flaps gently raise the paper roll off the ground. The operator is now free to safely and effortlessly maneuver the roll in any direction – on a cushion of air.
How do venues like Chicago’s United Center and Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena reconfigure thousands of bleacher seats in under two hours? The answer: custom Airfloat platforms. Capable of moving 11-tier, double-sided bleacher platforms, these transporters run circles around fork trucks and other movement solutions.
