Simbal’s Retractor Spring balancers (also known as tool balancers) are the ideal solution to many applications which require a tool to be held or positioned without excessive manual effort.
The retractor style balancer allows the operator to position the tool or load with minimal effort and the spring mechanism returns the tool to the top of the stroke when the operation is complete. For applications requiring the load to be maintained in position at any point within the stroke please refer to our zero gravity balancer range.
By suspending equipment from a secure point and controlling its movement, manual exertion and opportunity for human error is reduced. Suitable applications vary from light bench work to heavy industrial applications in areas such as foundries and car assembly plants. Our extensive stock includes retractor style spring balancers in a range of capacities from 0.2kg up to 14kg, with working strokes up to 2.5m.
Simbal also stocks a range of ATEX spring balancers which are fully certified for use in potentially explosive environments. We stock spring balancers that meet ATEX Rating Ex II 2GD c II 85degC (T6), making them suitable for an infinite range of applications across many industries. They are fully earthed, with no internal metal to metal contact, and provide 100% electrical continuity. The spring drum offers a robust ribbed and sealed construction, which is both dustproof and watertight.
