Air Bearings

Air Bearings is the term given to the applications that are used to move heavy objects in a horizontal motion with a minimum of lateral force. If air is discharged under controlled conditions underneath the item to be moved, friction is reduced to near zero and the item can be moved with ease. The largest use of such an application would most likely be the moving of seating structures at stadiums to convert from one sport to another. Production lines which require large items to be moved, then stopped while assemblies are added many times use air bearings.
