What Are Pneumatic Rope Balancers?

Pneumatic rope balancers are a lightweight articulated crane arm which can raise, and lower lifting attachments or grippers suspended from wire ropes. They are manually operated, allowing smooth, precise actions for lifting and manoeuvring products, creating optimal control of the load.

Pneumatic rope balancers can handle loads of different weights using ergonomic controls for lifting and lowering in a smooth and controlled manner. The suspended wire rope allows the lifting attachment to be moved into hard to access areas, as well as providing a ‘weightless’ experience for the machine operator. This is ideal when transporting large, unpredictable loads like the paper & flexibles industry. 

Pneumatic rope balancers have a wide range of applications across all industries and can be supplied as lift-only device or as part of a turnkey solution with a bespoke gripper to allow rotation and more complex manoeuvres.

Why Are Pneumatic Rope Balancers Used?

Pneumatic rope balancers are used to lift and transport loads in industrial environments. They are especially helpful when used in industrial manufacturing to move materials quickly and frequently on the production line for assembling mechanical parts and loading & unloading tool machines.

A pneumatic rope balancer’s ability to lift and manoeuvre loads into spaces that are not easily accessible makes them great for improving efficiency on assembly lines. Combined with lifting accessories like bespoke grippers, they further improve manual handling for workers, reducing the risk of workplace incidents.
