Air Film Technology – A New Era
Although air film technology has been in use since the 1960’s to move heavy objects, and has since been used in a diverse range of applications, it still remains very new to many industries. Not surprisingly, conventional methods of using wheels and rollers remain the first consideration by many when it comes to deciding how to move something heavy.
The assets of Hovair Systems, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of air film technology equipment, were recently purchased by British Turntable Company, the movement specialists since 1959. The Company now offers a vastly expanded range of solutions for moving almost any heavy or awkward load up to 600 tonnes. With a team of specialist Design and Project Engineers, full on-site engineering support, and an ever increasing investment in R & D, Hovair Systems, free from the constraints of a conglomerate, is now providing full turnkey solutions to an even broader range of industries.
