A Balancer with a safety wire arrest mechanism
Models available with the safety arrest mechanism
The SWA Series covers balancers from 9.0 to 70.0 Kg and up to 2.3 meters of travel. This series has incorporated the safety mechanism to lock the drum if the load fails or the wire rope is cut. Once the balancer recognises the load has been lost an automatic brake is applied causing the cable to be braked. This in turn stops the chance of an operator or any innocent bystander getting whiplashed by the cable returning at speed to the drum.
These models are exactly alike to the SWF Series apart from the added brake arrest mechanism
customisation of design
Within reason we have been able to satisfy customers needs where a design needed to be customised for special applications.
