March 2021 – Knight has designed a “Dual Drum” Air Balancer with the patented Safety Drop Stop “SDS” dual chain feature (Patent #:10,464,787). This is a safety feature that prevents a catastrophic fall in the event of a chain failure, with the secondary chain “catching” the load.
This type of Pneumatic Balancer is typically used in applications that require the manipulation of an unwieldy or large part, or a part that needs to remain square to the fixture. For more information, click here!
