The simple, modular design of air cushion systems gives this technology universal applicability, which is why they are useful not only for very heavy loads, but wherever great flexibility, a high degree of mobility and precise positioning accuracy are required.
Customers’ requirements are so wide and diverse that no two air cushion transporters will be exactly alike. That is why DELU has developed a comprehensive range of components and, thanks to its many years of experience and engineering expertise, is able to offer a customised solution for almost every conceivable problem.
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
