Air Caster Roll Transporters

The internal movement of rolls is usually both cumbersome and labor-intensive. Paper/metal/plastic rolls, cable reels, coils, and other types of round objects, can be easily moved using roll transporters on air casters. The roll transporters are an excellent alternative to forklifts or overhead cranes.

Also, the wheels of cars, trucks, etc. can be transported using roll transporters. The greatest benefit is that the roll transporter is hardly any larger in size than the roll that needs to be transported.

The roll transporter on air casters can be built to the client’s specifications and makes it possible to move very heavy rolls, irrespective of the material and size of the roll. The rolls can be laced directly on the roll transporter or, thanks to variable forks and integrated lift cushions, can be picked up directly from the floor.

The air caster roll transporters can be equipped with:

• Power-driven wheels; no more manual movement.
• Remote controls; to control the movement from a distance
• Automated guidance systems; to create an Automatic guided vehicle (AGV)
• Master-Slave system; to enable cooperation between multiple vehicles
• Adjustable forks: to pickup different diameters of rolls directly from the floor
• On-board
