Balance material handlers provide the foundation for an efficient, productive and cost-effective logistics system for scrap yards, ports and sawmills. Stationary balancer machines can cover a large area, replacing multiple mobile machines. Not only does this add logistical value, but it is also a plus in terms of occupational safety and reducing operating costs.
The equipment is perfectly balanced in any work position by the counterweight, which is directly connected to the equipment. This means that only a small amount of energy is needed to drive the equipment - even when large operating ranges and heavy loads are involved. Therefore balance material handlers can operate with just 50 % of the installed hydraulic and motor drive power compared with conventional machines. When combined with an electro-hydraulic drive, operating costs can be reduced by up to 75 % compared with conventional diesel run material handlers.
