What Is A Balance Trolley?

Balance trolleys are a platform that can support the load of a component. Castors mounted to the trolley allow them to move around the workplace. They have a bespoke head plate that can be raised or lowered. This creates a near effortless manual handling experience for the worker.

A pneumatic cylinder with a rechargeable air tank powers the movement of the head plate. The air tank allows the balance trolley to become a portable piece of reusable lifting equipment, thanks to its integrated rechargeable power supply.

The head plate can be customised with additional supports or different grippers to suit the application.

Why Are Balance Trolleys Used?

Balance trolleys are a versatile piece of mobile lifting equipment for any industry. Their ability to balance components requires minimal effort and eases the manual handling needs of your workers, also benefiting production lines.

The castors allow the equipment to move easily across the workplace and provide a lifting solution at multiple points across the production line. With freedom of movement, they remove the restrictions of traditional material handling equipment.

Handling Concepts' Balance Trolley Solution

This balance trolley solution can lift loads up to 10kg and include castor wheels to create a piece of mobile lifting equipment. It was tasked with balancing and lifting undercarriage automotive parts to allow workers to install different components.

There was an onboard 24L air tank to power the pneumatic cylinder. The air tank was rechargeable, allowing the equipment to be charged when needed.

Handling Concepts was asked to create two variations of the balance trolley as the customer needed a bespoke solution for both of their applications. Two different head plates were manufactured. One with a single support and one with three support arms. The supports were fitted with nylon blocks to reduce the risk of damage to the automotive parts.

The balance trolley removed the need for workers to lift and balance heavy parts. This reduced the risk of injuries caused by incorrect manual handling and improved the efficiency of the production line.
