Spring Balancer

Spring balancers of the highest quality – for better work station ergonomics.

Discover high-quality Carl Stahl Kromer spring balancers and zero-gravity balancers which serve as optimal equipment for ergonomic work stations. Spring balancers, often called retractors, are practical aids in assembly and production. These handling devices facilitate picking up a tool and keeping it constantly at hand, for instance. Many activities are easier to perform with cable hoists.

Kromer spring balancers are manufactured according to the highest quality guidelines. They have an automatic retracting function and hold tools weighing between 0 and 14 kg in a position where they are always ready for use. Our spring balancers are cylindrical and designed so that the retracting force increases with increasing cable extension. The gradual, smooth increase in retraction force ensures very precise work. After use, the spring balancer automatically returns the load is to the starting position. The work station remains orderly at all times, and the tool cannot be lost or misplaced.

Some of our spring balancers are available with a ratchet lock. The lock increases ergonomics even more and can be for special applications. The ratchet lock allows the suspended load to be locked in a pre-determined position when the load is moved back slowly.

You can creatively use our spring balancers in a wide range of areas. The only limit is your imagination. We would be happy to advise you and work together with you to create a concept for optimally using spring balancers and other Kromer products in your operations to reduce costs, increase productivity, and relieve loads on your staff. However, retractors are not designed for goods or load transport.
