Quarry Slab Production
Air bags are used in the production of large quarry slabs. A rock saw is used to slot the rock. Once the slot is made, an air bag is inserted to expand the slot large enough for a secondary set of stacked air bags to be lowered in. This secondary set of stacked air bags expands the slot enough to crack the slab free and over into a dirt pile placed to absorb the impact.
Industrial Machinery Lifting
Air lifting bags can be used for lifting heavy machinery off the shop floor to position forklifts, air casters, or other types of heavy machinery movement equipment. Air bags have a smaller insertion height than pancake jacks, can run off shop air, and importantly do not point load your expensive machinery, protecting your investment from damage. When lowering the machinery, air lifting bag deflation can be precisely controlled, giving you precision and
confidence in moving your equipment.
