Air film technology is considered ideal for handling transformers weighing several hundred tonnes quickly and smoothly through production and test facilities. Solving provides a variety of transporters for handling transformers, windings, cores and components ranging from simple manual Movers for smaller components to remotecontrolled and automated systems for bulky windings and transformers and for frequent operation.
Several manufacturers of transformers have used Solving’s Air Film Movers a long time to assemble windings, cores and active parts and to move them into vacuum ovens. Air film technology provides all the necessary freedom and flexibility for moving completed transformers weighing up to 500 tonnes or more. Electrical drive units and integrated batteries improve the flexibility of the Mover, and allow it to be operated without load free of any trailing cables or air hoses; these are connected only when a loaded steel pallet is to be moved.
