Air balanced hoists from Millsom Materials Handling offer a standard hoisting operation but with an added floating functionality. Hoisting is operated by the up/down pendant, and the floating function provides weightless vertical movement of up to 300mm.
These air balanced hoists are ideal for handling fragile or awkward goods as the floating feature ensures superior control. This hoisting equipment also proves efficient for products that need to be lifted and then assembled to another part. However, the product’s weight should be supported during this operation.
Millsom air balanced hoists have very few moving parts, ensuring high reliability while keeping maintenance and air consumption at a minimum. If the equipment is for any reason overloaded, an alarm will sound by discharging air, while the brake lock will stop the load from falling if the air supply should fail or be overloaded.
Millsom air balance hoists are suitable for use in numerous industries for handling a wide range of goods including perishables, fragile goods, vehicle assembly lines, manufacturing, and stonework and masonry.
