The Equalizer – for precision lifting
This Drum Gripper with Equalizer is a very steady lifting tool that is perfectly suited for precision work. A lifting tool without the Equalizer can sometimes move upwards when it empties a vessel, whereas this lifting tool remains stable even as the drum becomes increasingly lighter. This particular gripper is used for emptying plastic granulate from one drum to another, but it can also be used for other loads that need to be handled with precision.
The Equalizer is a control function that is designed for precise lifting. Emptying drums, lifting packages into cabinets, or placing fragile objects into packaging can be done with extreme precision. The Equalizer can be an added feature to almost any of our lifting tools.
Lifting drums weightlessly
The drum gripper is a lifting tool that uses a Bal-Trol, a pneumatic cylinder, to make the loads weightless. Instead of carrying heavy drums manually, the operator can use the lifting tool to lift and carry the weight of the load. By doing so, a comfortable and ergonomic working environment is created – one where employees remain healthy and work contentedly in the long run. Manually carrying 60 kg once is often no problem, but repeated lifting can often result in wear-and-tear injuries that affect life.
