Tool balancers or spring balancers are devices that are used to lift and suspend tools, to help in taking away the load of the tool from the user. Using a spring balancer in the workplace has a huge range of benefits, for user wellbeing and safety and for the environment that the user works in. This is a tool that is essential for more efficient and ergonomic ways of working, especially when it involves repetitive use of lightweight tools like air tools and screwdrivers, or even heavy industrial production processes like a vehicle assembly line. Not only does it help with better organisation of the workspace, but it also prevents expensive tools from being dropped on the floor and being damaged, or even more importantly, can prevent them from falling and injuring the user.
A balancer is suitable for a wide range of applications like:
Bench or line assembly
Tasks that involve lifting heavy tools constantly
What are the benefits of using a tool balancer in the workplace?

It allows the user to position a tool or piece of equipment to wherever it is needed in line with the task they are completing and will not move until the user re-positions it
A spring balancer neutralises the weight of the item that is being suspended, rendering the tool or piece of equipment weightless and taking the load away from the operator
Reduces injury from RSI and manual handling from the user
Reduces fatigue, therefore increasing productivity
By using a balancer, Workstations can be more organised and tidy, with tools always being in the right place
