Applications:

Tool balancers or spring balancers are devices that are used to lift and suspend tools, to help in taking away the load of the tool from the user. Using a spring balancer in the workplace has a huge range of benefits, for user wellbeing and safety and for the environment that the user works in. This is a tool that is essential for more efficient and ergonomic ways of working, especially when it involves repetitive use of lightweight tools like air tools and screwdrivers, or even heavy industrial production processes like a vehicle assembly line. Not only does it help with better organisation of the workspace, but it also prevents expensive tools from being dropped on the floor and being damaged, or even more importantly, can prevent them from falling and injuring the user.

A balancer is suitable for a wide range of applications like:
• Production lines
• Bench or line assembly
• Repetitive jobs
• Tasks that involve lifting heavy tools constantly
