Controlling an Air Table Used for Refurbishing Locomotive Diesel Engines



A company that specializes in locomotive diesel engine refurbishing


The company uses AirTables to move 12-cylinder diesel engines throughout their plant to refurbish them. The Air Table has a pendant and cable that were continually breaking and another competitive radio remote control system that was not reliable enough for their environment.


The Air Table is tethered to the air lines mounted on the walls of the factory. The Air table uses compressed air to pick up the heavy diesel engine and move it across the floor.
