The Millsom Air Balance Hoist and Power-Free Rail system with its reliable hoisting and float functions provide precise control for the handling of heavy materials in manufacturing and component assembly operations. Millsom Materials Handling ’s Air Balance Hoist with its characteristic manoeuvrable three-dimensional power-free rail system provides hoisting with the addition of a floating function, providing weightless vertical movement up to 300mm.
The Millsom Air Balance Hoist automatically changes to floating state, when the up-and-down motion stops and exhibits no jumping phenomena providing superior control when handling goods from workstation to workstation.
Following are the features of Air Balance Hoist & Power Free Rail System:
- Provides hoisting speeds from 1 to 1000mm/sec, (using 6.9 Bar/100 psi air pressure) and is regulated using a control valve.
- Standard Models are available from 60 to 1000kg (based on 6.9 Bar/100 psi air pressure).
- Low maintenance costs and small air consumption (0.13m³/stroke).
- Safety features including a brake lock mechanism that prevents the load from falling if air supply fails or is overloaded, and produces a bell sound by discharging air when an overload is applied.
