Yale Spring Balancers YBF 0.5-200kg



Spring Balancers

Spring balancers are used to relieve the operator from the weight of hand-tools. By using a tapered rope drum the weight of the attached load is compensated, loads up to 200 kg can be moved effortlessly in a vertical axis.

Common applications are Spot-welding guns, riveting-machines, slaughterhouse equipment, multiple nut-runners etc.

We also supply Yale Spring Balancers with safety features in case of rope breakage.
