Paul Jakse, VP Sales for industrial solutions supplier AeroGo, explains how largely redundant hovercraft transport technology is being used
to resolve obstacles to erecting modular structures within factories.
Damage to facility flooring is a hidden but serious risk in every manufacturing and industrial environment, but it can be mitigated. Read about it on page 22-24 »
Floor condition is critical to maintaining efficiency and productivity because damaged floors can lead to surprisingly high costs. Damaged flooring places workers, productivity and assets at risk. Such damage can create safety hazards and slow down operations, thus incurring greater and more frequent maintenance costs while potentially endangering manufactured goods. Read more about how you can minimize floor damage in factories in the IEN Europe article
Plant Engineering features AeroGo’s article “Seven challenges of load movement systems."

Every material handling solution has unique characteristics, which underscore the challenge of finding the optimal solution.
Here’s a link to the video all about the James Webb Telescope. Take note of the commentary from 20:30 – 21:00 – those are AeroGo air bearings and drives!
Air casters are being used in aerospace cleanrooms.
AeroGo is a global leader in providing innovative load-moving solutions to move heavy, awkward or delicate objects. They manufacture air bearings, a technology that uses compressed air to reduce friction and make it possible to float immensely heavy objects, often called "industrial air hockey".
Machine tools can often be prohibitively difficult to relocate after installation, becoming immoveable “monuments,” distorting facility layouts and eroding manufacturing productivity, capacity and throughput. One way to easily move CNC machines and others is by using air bearings or machine skates. Read more here!
A “Behind this Door” video offers a peek into a small — but critical — piece of Intel’s manufacturing process: Assembly Test Technology Development (ATTD) factories. In these factories, engineers research and develop the latest testing equipment and processes before they pass them on to Intel's high-volume manufacturing factories, where tens of millions of chips are tested every day. Especially note the video between 1:15-1:36.
