ATB AirBalancer

Safer, easy lifting with load weight compensation

With a lifting capacity of up to 350 kg, the Konecranes ATB AirBalancer uses a floating load unit, harnessing air pressure as the power source. Load weight compensation allows loads of varying weights to be lifted at the same speed, giving predictable up/down control. This makes the ATB AirBalancer an excellent solution for fast pick-and-place operation.

The ATB is also ideal for accurate load positioning, such as that required on assembly lines. It is available with an automatic load balancing feature, which makes it possible to lift a unit by hand in zero gravity mode up to 70 kg. To the operator, a load on the ATB AirBalancer feels almost weightless. 

Improved productivity with shorter cycle times

The Konecranes ATB AirBalancer is excellent for assembly processes, repairs, and industrial production tasks in many industries, including manufacturing and automotive. Precision is achieved through continuous three-dimensional movement and no jerky motions, making the AirBalancer especially good for lifting fragile items.

Instead of electricity, the AirBalancer uses pneumatic control technology, making it safer to operate and more economical to maintain.

Ergonomic product manipulation

Each ATB AirBalancer is equipped with a safety brake that stops the rope if upward movement is too fast. In the event of an uncontrolled motion, this feature allows for a quick and easy brake reset.

The ATB AirBalancer has been designed to enhance the natural lifting motion of the operator. Choose an up/down control, a balancing control, or combine the two. Air balancing equipment is compatible with a wide range of other crane systems, including the Konecranes XA and XM workstation cranes, and our jib cranes as well.
