Our newest addition to the Align Production Systems air caster family is the Aluminum Air Planks group. Manufactured from extruded aluminum, Align Production Systems now offers a lightweight alternative to the traditional steel air casters. With up to a 37,500 lbs load capacity per plank, now is the time to upgrade your transportation system and adopt air caster technology.

 

Higher load capacities can be achieved by using more air planks-  a controller can handle up to 6 planks. The Aluminum Air Planks are available with several top fixturing options, as well as a forkable storage pallet that can accommodate up to 9 air planks and the operating accessories.

Learn more about the Aluminum Air Planks here.

Align Production Systems is proud to introduce our Summer 2019 interns. Our interns will be spending their summer working on a number of projects in our marketing, engineering, product development, and air caster departments.

Mitch Brunner

is an engineering student at Washington University St. Louis. Mitch will be working with our product development team this summer. Outside of the office, Mitch can be found playing the violin or hitting the wrestling mats at WUSTL.

Brandon Schmidt

is a student at Maryville University where he studies business with an emphasis in marketing. He will be working in our marketing department and will play an important role in the product development team. When he’s outside of the office, Brandon can be found watching the St. Louis Cardinals or doing something with cars.

Dalen Sloan

is a student at Missouri State University where he studies mechanical engineering. Dalen is a returning intern and will be working in our engineering group for the summer. When he’s not stuck at a SolidWorks station, Dalen can be found wrenching away on his 1984 Chevrolet pick-up.

Jacob Woodruff

is an incoming freshman at Southern Illinois Unversity Edwardsville where he will study economics. Jacob will be interning in our Air Caster department, where he will be learning the art of making Air Casters. When he’s not at Align, Jacob enjoys playing in a band with his friends.

Check out this new video from the ITER, a project formed from 35 countries to develop the world’s first nuclear fusion reactor. This video features a custom designed air caster transporter that is used to manufacture super magnets for the reactor. The snippet below from ITER’s website describes the goal of the project.

ITER will be the first fusion device to produce net energy. ITER will be the first fusion device to maintain fusion for long periods of time. And ITER will be the first fusion device to test the integrated technologies, materials, and physics regimes necessary for the commercial production of fusion-based electricity.

Align Production Systems is proud to be involved with ITER, as well as other breaking edge research project, including the Hyperloop.

You can learn more about our transporter and its use in the project here.

The team at Align Production Systems would like to wish all our customers and suppliers a happy holiday season. To celebrate the holidays this year, the Align Production Systems team headed over to Painting with a Twist, an art studio where the studio artists guided our team step-by-step as they attempted to create a holiday masterpiece.

 

After concluding the painting session, several of our team members were tasked with choosing the best and worst painting of the evening. The team at Align Production Systems learned a valuable lesson that none of us should quit our day jobs to pursue a career in art.

 

Following the festivities of the evening before, our team headed to NILO Farms the next afternoon to participate in our annual Duck Hunt & Sporting Clays Competition. Following suit from last year’s sporting clays contest, Jeff Goudy from our engineering team claimed the victory with an impressive 80/100 score for the day.
