Tool balancers, also known as spring balancers exist to hold and counterbalance tools in a pre-set position making them essentially weightless during use. The tool balancer consists of a reel containing an extendable support cable that is suspended from an overhead line or connected to a fitting in the workplace. The tool is then connected to the tool balancer by a suspension hook and a tensioning spring inside the balancer is fine-adjusted to the weight of the tool using a tensioning knob. Tool balancers are available with different load capacities and cable travel lengths.
The major benefits are that they provide weightless operation of tools, increase operator comfort and decrease fatigue, increases productivity allowing use of tool over long periods of time and prevent tools from being dropped and damaged.
Tool spring balancers are ideal for use in industrial settings where heavy tools are commonly utilised in the same position in assembly line or bench tasks.
Possible applications of tool spring balancers include pneumatic tools, portable power tools and hydraulic tools, Resistance spot welding machines, X-Ray apparatus, Measuring machines, Compressed air equipment, XPower tools, Welding machines, Welding templates, Paint spraying apparatus and Cages. Whatever the required use, DLH Online has the right fit for you.
