Tool Balancers And Spring Balancers

What Is A Tool Balancer?
Tool balancers are hand tool aids that allow the operator to suspend their tool in a pre-determined position. This helps to minimise the output for the operator of the hand tool and in turn helping to prevent musculoskeletal injuries in the operator. They are frequently used by operators who use heavy hand tools for long periods of time in the same position.

Tool balancers make your workplace safer, more practical, and ergonomically more functional!

 

How Does A Tool Balancer Work?
Tool balancers are made up of both a reel and extendable cable that can be attached overhead of your workstation. This can be suspended from a balancer rail or other appropriate ceiling attachment.

Once the tool balancer is suspended, you can connect your tool onto the suspension hook at the end of the extendable support cable. Each tool balancer has a tension spring that is adjusted to the weight of the suspended tool through the tensioning knob. Ensure that you select the appropriate tool balancer that corresponds to the weight of your tool.

 

What Are The Benefits Of A Tool Balancer?
There are a number of benefits that you can reap through the use of a tool balancer. These include:

  • Ensuring that the tool is weightless. This reduces worker fatigue and helps with repetitive tasks. You can therefore, comfortably sustain longer periods of time using manual tools.
  • Ensure tools do not become damaged through drops to the floor. By having tools suspended, you also save space in your work area when the tool is not being used.
  • Easily adjust the tool balancer to suit different tools.
  • Eliminate trip hazards by keeping equipment elevated and off of the floor.

 

What Other Factors Do I Need To Consider?
Weight –
It is vital when deciding upon a tool balancer, that you know the weight of the tool you will be using. The load capacity of the tool balancers we can provide differs. Optimally, you should decide upon a tool balancer that is close to the weight of the equipment you will be hanging from it.

Workstation – You must also consider your workstation needs when selecting the tool balancer for you. Ensure that you have the optimal set up to hang the equipment from, along with considering the travel and reach that the tool will need to have. Ensuring you have planned the maximum movement that the spring balancer will need to reach from its start position means you can place the tool balancer in the best location at your workstation.

Equipped Tools – There is a wide variety of tools that can be set up with a tool balancer, including:

  • Electric Screwdrivers
  • Pneumatic Tools
  • Drills
  • Nail Guns
  • Assembly Tools
