KROMER Retractors are used in the manufacturing industry at assembly and production workstations to improve tool management.
The aim is to increase ergonomics and thus safety and productivity at the workplace.
Tool Retractors or also called Spring Balancers, are usually installed above an assembly workstation, where tools such as power tools or compressed air tools are kept ready for the user. If a tool is required for a work step, it can easily be pulled down to the place of use. After completing the work step, the tool is simply released and automatically returned to the starting position by the retraction force of the Retractor.
This process leads to several advantages:
Kromer Retractor type 7212 and type 7222 are also available with an automatic arresting mechanism (ratchet lock), which can be very useful for special applications. With the automatic ratchet lock, you define a premature retraction stop at certain positions. In this way, loads like power and pneumatic tools are positioned at a desired height. A useful feature, especially for repetitive work in assembly and production. Our tool retractors are used in nearly every manufacturing industry, especially where people work with hand-held power tools and pneumatic tools.
