Carl Stahl Kromer

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.

Kromer spring balancers since 1917

There is a long tradition of spring balancers at Carl Stahl Kromer. Since 1917, the family-owned business has produced retractors and balancers and continuously refined them. This long experience is reflected in the unrivalled quality of our product range. Among the advantages of Kromer products are very low wear, high safety standards, outstanding quality, trouble-free processes, simple operation, and optimal force increase. Another advantage is our spring balancers’ uncomplicated maintenance. We offer training that allows you to maintain them quickly on your own. It is important to us that our customers be as satisfied as possible, which is why we greatly appreciate feedback and suggestions from suppliers and interested parties. Such suggestions are incorporated into new developments and refinements and allow innovation with true utility.

Discover the advantages of Kromer spring balancers

Kromer spring balancers are particularly durable, safe, and extraordinarily precise, as a multi-month study by the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences has shown. They outperformed the competition in all areas – by a large margin in some cases. A significant reason for this is the continuous innovation and refinement of our products, something we regularly invest a great deal of time and effort in. High customer expectations motivate us to constantly become better. We place great value on the quality of our products. Kromer spring balancers are life-tested and meet the requirements of DIN 15112. They conform to CE guidelines and bear the “GS” safety-test label. Their retracting performance is especially smooth, and some models are designed for truly continuous operation under great load. In practice, Kromer spring balancers reliably hold up under even the highest loads. They generate enthusiasm with their extremely long service life and high stability. Find out for yourself.
