More information

Air casters

Air casters are the core elements in an air bearing system. These are the hovering and pneumatic lifting parts which consists of a metal backplate with a torus or bladder. The bladder / torus is either made from neoprene rubber or polyurethane plastic. The benefit of plastic is that it's almost wear free, but it has  less capacity. Neoprene has almost twice the capacity and can generate a higher lift.
