Here is a very useful addition to our range of aluminum transporters - the Air Pallet Transporter.

These air pallets are particularly suitable for use as warehouse equipment or in other similar type facilities.

Air Pallets are ideal for situations that require heavy load moving of standard shapes and sizes. They are equipped with a push handle assembly at the rear which allows the operator tighter control of the operational settings. The push handle assembly houses twin handlebar grips, trigger switch to start and stop operation, main air inlet from shop air supply, and air balancing valves to ensure that all air bearings are receiving the correct amount of air in relation to the weight of the load and the condition of the floor on which the air pallet is operating.

Air pallets have a low profile of around 2+ inches, and are easily moved on a thin film of air that is created when the air bearings are powered by regular compressed shop air. Omni-directional control is a breeze for just one person (for loads of up to 3 tons) via the handlebars on the push assembly. Air is directed to the air bearings via a trigger switch set just below one of the handles. What could be easier for pallet handling?

Air pallets are able to move heavy loads from just 500 pounds to 20 tons and beyond, are available in many width sizes - starting around 3ft. - and are easily customized to suit the customer's specifications - ranging from the footprint size of the pallet, to a pick and lift air pallet that is able to lift its load vertically before floating it off to its destination. The pick and lift system is especially useful if the customer is using low profile air pallets to hold the load, instead of setting the load directly on the air pallet. For repetitive movements of same size loads within a factory or warehouse facility, these air pallets are likely to provide an ideal solution to your heavy load moving equipment needs.

Warehouse Equipment: When used for this purpose, these air pallets really do make short work of repetitive load movements of fixed size loads. Simply drop the load onto the air pallet, pull the air activation trigger and whisk the load of to its destination. All you need is an air supply line.

Load Moving Equipment Systems | Moving Heavy Machinery | Machine Handling

The selection covers virtually all types of load moving equipment - including Moving Heavy Machinery, Machine Handling and Heavy Load Moving - needed to lift and transport loads from 500 pounds to 100 tons and beyond. Load Moving Equipment Systems manufactured by Hovair use the latest air bearing and caster technology available in today's air film industry.


Air Bearings | Caster Modules

Air Bearings and Caster Modules: The hub of our pneumatic powered load moving systems is the effective use of air bearings and caster modules as heavy machinery moving equipment. All Hovair Systems air caster modules are strong enough to support the weight of the loads their air bearings are designed to lift and move.


Air Beams|Lift Decks|Moving Handling Equipment

Lift Deck Beams Sets are able to move under a load (similar to a pallet truck) that is set on a low-profile pallet, then lift the pallet off the floor using the air lifter facility in the upper beam decks. However, by having a lift-deck incorporated into the structure, you can engage a heavy load and lift it clear of its base before moving it away.


Aluminum Load Moving Transporter Pallets|Moving Heavy Loads

Like all Hovair Systems products, aluminum load moving transporter pallets offer a flexible and easy way for moving your regular shaped loads by harnessing the power and energy of simple compressed air. Air bearing replacement is a simple process and requires the removal of 1 hex-head bolt for A-type air bearings and 5 bolts for the B-type air bearings.


Industrial Turntables|Factory Automation Equipment|Specialty Turntables

In addition to our well known residential range of car and automobile turntables, we also offer custom-built turntables for industrial use within factories, automotive plants, and other similar locations. Hovair Systems are a leading manufacturer of Industrial Turntables to the material handling industry. Easy installation via floor surface mounting bolts. Optional variable control speeds - up to 25 rpm.
