Design of Load Balancer
POWERMASTER Overhead Spring Balancers are specially designed to free the operator from weight of the hand tools. When properly balanced by adjusting spring tension, the load balancing tools become almost weightless in the hands of the operator, and can be moved up and down with very little effort.
Safety Features of Load Balancers
Prior to the safety initiatives and modifications undertaken by Powermaster older design Spring Balancers had only limited safety provisions, due to which these older type Spring Balancers were prone to operational hazards and industrial accidents leading tohuge compensations.
Powermaster has introduced several safety features into our new designed Spring Balancers while retaining all the existing safety features.
Powermaster Load Balancers have thus become more user friendly, eliminating chances of accidents.
Exclusive Safety Features of Load Balancers Introduced:
Spring Balancers from other suppliers are supplied with opening both in Body Cover causing accidental crunch of operator’s fingers between revolving drum and the body of the Spring Balancers. To prevent this, side windows on the body of the load balancing tools and cover have been eliminated. This would prevent industrial accidents.

In the unfortunate event of accidental dislodging of the suspended weight, breakage of bottom hook / wire rope, spring tension will pull back the wire rope, resulting in whiping action likely to hurt personnel around.
This mechanism of the load balancer will lock the last revolving drum pulley the wire rope assembly will be stopped with max. 20cm travel. This will prevent the whiping of wire rope assembly avoided any injury to operator or any personnel around.

In order to prevent wear of the slot of the Spring Balancer body, a split type Nylon liner for wire rope has been introduced in the new design Spring Balancers.
This liner can be removed and installed on site without any need for dismantling of the wire rope.
This will prevent wear of the costly body resulting in overall saving and reduced down time of equipment.

In Spring Balancers from other manufactures the worm gear box for adjustment of Spring Tension worked in the horizontal axis. Gear box position has been rotated through 90 degrees so that spring tension adjustment can be made by working in vertical axis.
This will facilitate adjustment from ground level without any need to rise up to Spring Balancer hanging level. This reduces down time, facilities easy operation and reduces the chance of any mishap during an operator rising to the level of the balancer.

There is no need of electrical or mechanical power.
Balancers keep work area uncluttered to reduce chances of damages of accessories or accidental start up of tools during handling.
Effective Use of Space
The working place being widely utilized, and also to be cleaned up, the production is smoothly carried out.
