Cleco Air Cylinder & Spring Balance Arms

Cleco Air Cylinder & Spring Balance Arms feature ball bearing construction. Cleco Air Cylinder & Spring Balance Arms support tools weighing up to 5 lbs. for the Spring Models or up to 10 lbs. for the Air Cylinder Models.

Cleco Air Cylinder & Spring Balance Arms are engineered to deliver longer service life using durable components, rugged design and operator-sensitive features. These arms absorb the torque produced by the screwdriver, eliminating torque reaction to the operator. Balanced by springs or air cylinders, the arm and not the operator supports the weight of the tool. By reducing the fatigue factors, the operator productivity is improved. Tool movement and placement over the fastener is virtually effortless since most moving parts of the balance arm are mounted on ball bearings. Access to the tool is easily changeable by adjusting the springs or cylinder supporting the forearm.

Arm components and materials are selected for strength and rigidity. Precision aluminum sand castings used in the articulating arm section are light but sturdy. Over 25 models of the Cleco screwdriver balance arms are available. Air cylinder models are capable of supporting tools weighing up to 10 lbs. (4.5 kg.). Spring models will support tools weighing up to 5 lbs. (2.3 kg.). Both styles have torque capacities of 10 ft. lbs. (13.5 Nm). Arms can be post mounted, wall mounted or mounted on an adjustable height post. Tool holders for all models will accommodate most major brands of air tools…straight and pistol.

Cleco Air Cylinder & Spring Balance Arms are designed with the operator in mind. They are small, lightweight and comfortable to use, and don’t sacrifice durability. They incorporate elastomer coatings, and perfectly balanced moving parts to keep vibration to a minimum. This optimal combination of tool characteristics allows the operator to focus doing the best job possible, in the least amount of time. Cleco Air Cylinder & Spring Balance Arms meet the demanding requirements of industries including shipbuilding, pipe fabricating, transportation equipment manufacturing, and welding applications. Since these types of applications typically require a high material removal rate, Cleco General Accessories incorporate high horsepower/high RPM motors.
