In this paper, a new contactless conveyor system based on an original aerodynamic traction principle is described and experimented. This device is able to convey without any contact flat objects like silicon wafer, glass sheets or foodstufff thanks to an air cushion and induced air flows. A model of the system is established and the identification of the parameters is carried out. A closed-loop control is proposed for one dimension position control and position tracking. The PID-controller gives good performances for different reference signals. Its robustness to object change and perturbation rejection are also tested.
