Research & development makes constant demands on transport that can only be met by conventional means at considerable financial and structural cost.
Thanks to new transport concepts and innovative air cushion technology, we have been able to close this gap and deliver flexibility in the movement of large, heavy or sensitive loads, as you can see from the examples on the right-hand side.
High flexibility and simple adaptation to new products and production processes
Investment costs are reduced, productivity boosted and lead times shortened
Transport system can be operated conveniently by one operator by remote control
Load can move freely in all directions and rotations around the axis, ensuring best possible utilisation of the space available
Floating load allows precise positioning
Low maintenance expense
Environmentally friendly technology without exhaust fumes or noise
Can also be used in explosion protected zones and clean rooms
