Air cushion platforms

go back
friction-free movement
norelem air cushion plates lift and move heavy loads with a minimum of effort.
As soon as compressed air flows out on the underside of the air cushion plate, the workpiece-carrier quickly rises by a fraction of a millimetre in a scarcely visible manner. The thin film of air is sufficient to allow even the heaviest loads to be moved horizontally without effort.
The norelem air cushion plate is a cavity chamber made of very strong aluminium. Switching on the compressed air pressurises the chamber. The air escapes via a large number of calibrated outlet nozzles along the hardened bottom plate at a pressure of 6 bar and creates an air cushion of between 0.03 and 0.15 mm capable of carrying loads. This allows a workpiece or component (attached to the work surface with its attachment drill holes) to be moved without effort from one processing position to the next. The advantage: sliding friction is eliminated and compared with other systems only a very light displacement force is required. Air cushion plates contribute to the implementation of productive solutions in many areas, for example in manufacturing-, assembly-, packing- and handlingplants.
norelem sells air cushion plates of sizes 205 mm x 255 mm and 255 mm x 425 mm. The former can move loads of up to 450 kg, the latter up to about 630 kg. The individual platforms can be combined without problems to even make bigger systems with a greater load capacity and can be activated manually or automatically via a single valve. The thinner the bench top, the thicker the air cushion and the greater the weight that can be moved. Slots in the bench are of no concern with this form of horizontal movement and if necessary they are compensated by a slight increase in air pressure.
The installation and assembly of air plates platforms require little effort and the process is safe, effective and very efficient in cost-benefit terms. There are practically no alternatives to air cushion platform systems from a time and cost point of view.
