Compressed air bellows are used e.g. as lifting cylinders in drive units, brakes, guiding rolls or lifting flaps.
We manufacture pneumatic and electric friction wheel drives with tractive forces from 50 to 3,500 daN.
These are permanently built into air cushion vehicles or running gears. A distinction is made between fixed, pivoting, steerable and X-Y drives.
External drives allow loads on platforms or air cushion running gears without integrated drives to be moved.
This includes mechanical guiding rolls and magnetic or optical tape control systems.
