Aero-Motive® Balancers and Retractors

The Aero-Motive balancers and retractors from Molex are ergonomic and cost-effective with superior suspension features that are streamlined to fit virtually any industrial work space

Aero-Motive® PositionersMolex's ergonomic and cost-effective Aero-Motive balancers and retractors with superior-suspension features are streamlined to fit virtually any industrial work space, improve productivity by keeping tools organized, and safeguard expensive power tools from possible accidents.

Aero-Motive balancers enhance productivity within three segmented industrial duties, offering weight ranges that cover most industrial equipment capacity requirements from 0.50 to 168.00 kg (1.00 to 370.00 lbs). Within each industrial segment, balancers were designed with safety as a priority while ensuring long-term performance and best-in-class ergonomics. Field-proven designs offer vertical tension adjustment, trouble-free cable replacements (while units are still in service), and simple maintenance. Additionally, remote-, manual- and automatic-safety locks are available to prevent the balancers from losing tension.

Light industrial-duty balancers are designed with ABS high-impact plastic housings for extra durability.

Standard industrial-duty balancers are designed with thin high-pressure aluminum housings for added durability and impact resistance.

Heavy industrial-duty balancers are designed with thick gravity die-casting aluminum housings for the most rugged, abusive environments such as the automotive, steel, and tire industries. The high-performance WearGuard™ coating protects both cable and cable drum from premature failures while eliminating the need of constantly greasing the cables while in service.

Features Applications
  • Holds an object or tool in desired position
  • Easy tension adjustment
  • Minimizes operator fatigue
  • Automotive plants
