Pneumatic rope balancers

Our pneumatic rope balancers are suitable for positioning loads with great sensitivity and for completing complex joining and assembly tasks. The payloads are equipped with rope drums that utilize compressed air to suspend and balance payloads on the rope, allowing operators to position payloads with high levels of precision.
