Anyone that works in a factory, warehouse or anywhere involving repetitive tool processes will be well aware of the benefits of spring balancers. If not, it’s high time you get educated!

Spring balancers allow you to easily and efficiently use a suspended tool with very little effort or exertion; e.g. a welding gun on a production line, paint spraying equipment in a garage or even X-ray apparatus.

Benefitting from an up/down freedom of motion, this piece of equipment can be adjusted to stay in position or retract based on the needs of the worker and nature of the task, taking the weight off the worker to quite literally lighten the load.
