Abstract

Bulky and delicate equipment is clamped to a platform 1 provided with air passages 2, into which air under pressure is introduced to provide air cushion support, whereby the platform is easily moved. An air passage 3 is connected to a cavity 4 whereby, when the platform is in the required position, air can be removed from the cavity 4 to clamp the platform and its load securely in place, for example, for equipment testing.
