The M Series Load Positioner advantage

Precise, strain-free positioning – Zero Gravity™ float leaves both hands free to raise lower or shift the load with virtually no resistance. No more “hoist control” hit-and-miss spotting.

Simple adjustment – Clear access to air-flow calibration controls allows quick, easy adjustment of the Zero Gravity™ float.

Low air consumption – Approximately 1/8 cfm (0.004 NM3) required per cycle (50 times less than an air hoist), means very low energy costs.

Clean, oil-free operation – Pre-lubricated design – Eliminates air line lubrication and oil mist exhaust. It’s ideal for food processing and clean manufacturing environments.

Rugged reliability – for continuous duty with minimal maintenance, the M Series load positioner delivers cost effective performance.

Control & Suspension Options

Single Balance Control (S)

A Load Positioner equipped with the (S) Single Balance control is an excellent alternative to traditional spring balancers. The balance range of a single capacity Load Positioner is equivalent to that of 10 different capacity spring balancers with the main difference being that the Load Positioner maintains constant tension throughout it’s full range of travel.

Suited for:

  • Tool Balancing
  • Weld Gun Suspension
  • Fixture Suspension

Pendent (P)

The (P) Pendent Control is designed for high speed precision handling of variable weight loads. Up/Down movement is accomplished through the use of an ergonomically designed pendent with low-effort, color-coded thumb levers. After positioning the load with the pendent control, the unit defaults into a Zero-Gravity™ condition allowing the operator up to 18 in (450 mm) of float for final positioning.

Hi, Lo, Un Load Control (E)

Load Positioners equipped with the (E) control are designed to excel in high speed, constant weight, repetitive parts handling operations. The control positions are thumb actuated and are used to switch the unit to accommodate different load modes as required. These are as follows:

HILOAD- Used to pick up or balance the maximum weight load

LOLOAD- Used to balance, lower, and precisely position the load.

UNLOAD- Used to release and balance the empty hook.
