Solving Modular Air Bearing Systems

Solving Modular Air Bearing Systems are designed to handle a variety of heavy loads and items of machinery.

 

Operation

To ensure maximum stability at least three or four modules should be placed under the load, placing the modules as far apart as possible whilst also evenly distributing the weight between them. The modules are then connected to the control unit and the compressed air supply. Pressure regulators within the control unit are used to increase the air pressure in each module until the load is raised off the floor. A thin film of air is then formed under each module virtually eliminating friction and allowing a heavy load to be moved and positioned with ease and accuracy.

 

Floor surface quality

The quality of the floor surface affects the air consumption and the force required to move the load. To achieve optimum performance a level, paper-smooth surface, free of steps and cracks, is required. For occasional moves a substandard floor can be improved using thin sheet steel or PVC.

Solving Automated Guided Vehicles

Solving AGV Movers are designed for continuous industrial operation, for moving heavy loads long distances and serving automated production processes. Control systems are usually fitted with a graphic PC display with an integrated memory for registering tasks and events to assist fault finding.

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) are used for heavy load handling such as paper rolls, steel coils and in motor assembly lines. AGV systems allow an efficient and modern way of transporting heavy materials in production processes and assembly lines.

 

Advantages:

  • Integral safety systems such as bumpers, lights and emergency stops
  • Efficient and continuous operation, 24-hours a day
  • Less material-damage due to safe and precise handling
  • A clean and safe working environment
  • Unmanned operation reduces the labour costs
  • Monotonous labour can be avoided

Solving Air Film Movers
Solving’s customised wheeled Movers are especially suited for heavy load handling. The self-levelling axles ensure that the wheels are always evenly loaded and in contact with the floor at all times.
 
The range of Solving wheeled Movers includes ride-on and pedestrian-controlled, remote-controlled and automatically guided vehicles, and special vehicles for hazardous environments including EX for offshore and chemical applications. Special interface equipment can be incorporated as required.
 
Wheeled Movers are used for indoor- and outdoor transports of heavy loads in production facilities and on offshore plants.
 
Wheeled Movers are recommended when:
 
  • Long distances are to be travelled
  • There are variations in floor quality
  • Loads are limited to less than 100 tonnes
  • Clean room conditions exist
