Outstanding quality and the highest precision – our balancers

Design your work stations ergonomically with the extremely precise, high-quality balancers (zero-gravity balancers) from Kromer. The multifaceted lifting aids can be used either for load relief during work with hand-held tools or as support for linear tools such as multi-purpose power tools and hand riveters. They are very popular for this use in a variety of industries , among them the automotive industry and the food sector. Balancers significantly simplify crafting work and reduce fatigue even over long periods of time. The zero-gravity balancers are equipped with conical cable drums that keep retraction force almost constant across the entire cable extension range. After use, the suspended load remains reliably in position. Balancers support your staff effectively by improving their working conditions, relieving physical strain, and increasing productivity. The tool is always at hand quickly and allows especially precise, delicate work. However, zero-gravity balancers are not designed for goods transport or coupling and uncoupling of loads.

You can rely on Kromer balancers

All our balancer generate enthusiasm for their outstanding quality. They have well-thought-out equipment features, some of them exclusive, and prove themselves in long-term use. A six-month comparative study by the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences shows that Carl Stahl Kromer balancers are clearly in the lead in all tested areas. They outperformed competing products in service life, precision, and safety, in some cases by wide margins. Kromer zero-gravity balancers meet the requirements of DIN 15112 and are life-tested. They conform to CE guidelines and bear the “GS” safety-test label.

One especially innovative development by Carl Stahl Kromer is the Type 7248 dual-cable balancer . It is equipped with two suspension cables, which delays natural wear. At the same time, the second cable constitutes a fall arrest. If one of the cables breaks, the carried application can still keep its position. This remarkable technology makes the model very safe and durable.

The patented freewheel, with which many Kromer balancers have been equipped since 2008, is another important Kromer innovation. It prevents the spring from breaking even when the operator makes an error while releasing it. Some balancers of the medium-duty and heavy-duty series are available with a ratchet lock . If you retract the suspended load slowly, this lock can act as a retraction stop at a pre-determined position, which is a great advantage for special applications.
