Air balancers are used to allow operators to lift heavy loads and manoeuvre them precisely, thanks to the ‘floating’ method, whereas traditional hoists use ‘jogging’. With a capacity ranging from 50lb to 2000lb (22 to 909kg) these devices are perfect for a wide range of uses.
The force sensors mean that up and down controls are not needed, instead the sensors detect the amount of force used and calculate the precise amount of upward or downward movement that is required. These devices are ideal for loads up to 1000lb (455kg).
Mechanical Spring Balancers
Where constant weight needs to travel vertically over a short distance, mechanical spring balancers are ideal. With a weight capacity of up to 363lb (165kg), they are primarily used for items such as power tools and weld guns.
