Dobco Equipment Ltd. carries a full range of innovative construction equipment produced by Ingersoll Rand (IR) for Canadian businesses. Backed by the manufacturer’s 150 years and counting of experience, this portfolio includes Zimmerman balancers: ergonomic devices that provide a safe, comfortable means of lifting and handling extremely heavy loads and materials. The IR Zimmerman brand comprises three main categories of balancers – pneumatic balancers, intelligent lifting systems, and mechanical spring balancers.
With built-in overload protection
With many innovative features that make it perfect for lifting items of up to 2,000 pounds, the Zimmerman line of balancers offers exact, strain-free positioning that allows the user to raise, lower, or shift loads with virtually no resistance with free hands. Pneumatic models provide easy access to airflow-calibration controls, which allows simple float adjustment, and the built-in overload protection makes sure that the lifted load never surpasses the unit’s maximum rated capacity, keeping the user safe. Another benefit is the centrifugal brake, which stops fast upward cable travel automatically when employees lose loads accidentally.
A major example of IR’s selection of intelligent lifting systems, the InteLIFT series comprises balancers that convert intuitive user input into smooth, effortless vertical motion, and a key advantage is a force-sensing control handle that responds to user input quickly and seamlessly for precise positioning of loads of up to 1,000 pounds. For differing applications and user comfort levels, three speeds are available.
For the third family of Zimmerman balancers, the mechanical spring balancers, there are 50 models in five different series, which allows customers to choose specific models for their individual needs. These devices can lift loads of up to 363 pounds with heights from five to nine feet, and every one has controls for accurate spring adjustment that are easy to operate. Due to the “gravity-free” effect, users can move intermediate, heavy, and super-duty models with minimal effort. To stop sudden dripping when springs fail, mechanical spring balancers also have safety locking devices.
For the peak of pneumatic, electric, and hydraulic tools available on the market, always trust in the IR line from Dobco.
