Retractors

PACKERS KROMER retractors are designed so that the retracting force increases with increasing cable extension. Thus, the working load (tool) is automatically retracted to its initial position after use, allowing the workspace to be used for other tools or devices. Precise operation is assured as the retraction force increases gradually and very smoothly.

    REQUEST MORE INFORMATION

    This retractor provides support when working with small hand operated tools, or used in equipment to pull back objects in motion like robot cables and hose; however, unlike a balancer, tension increases as the cable is pulled out. With a maximum cable travel of 2.5 m (8.2 ft), this model provides ample working range for many applications. The load-carrying capacity is adjustable within the working range of a specific model.

    The 7212 version comes with a ratchet lock in addition. This automatic arresting mechanism allows the load to be suspended in a predefined position if moved back at a lower speed.

    • Housing:
      Orange high impact nylon
    • Cable drum:
      Abrasion-resistant nylon
    • Cable:
      High-strength anti-rotation steel cable with elastic cable stop buffer and spring hook for load suspension

    These reliable retractors designed for continuous duty assure safe and precise operation in all fields of application.

    REQUEST MORE INFORMATION

    This retractor is designed to support heavier hand operated tools, or used in equipment to pull back objects in motion like robot cables and hose; however, unlike a balancer, tension increases as the cable is pulled out. With larger cable extension range of 3.0 m (9.8 ft), this model provides ample working range for many applications. The load-carrying capacity is adjustable within the working range of a specific model.

    Thanks to their quality and safety, these retractors have stood the test. Parts subject to wear, like the spring and cable, are easy to replace and available as spare parts. This series comes with a spring breakage safeguard as a standard feature that reliably prevents the suspended load from falling down if the spring breaks. Also standard is the secondary safety chain.

    This series has a continuously rotatable adjusting screw, and incorporates a device that prevents inadvertent spring damage during load setting. 

    Just like its smaller counterpart, the 7222 version comes with a ratchet lock. This automatic arresting mechanism allows the load to be suspended in a predetermined position if returned at a lower speed.

    • Suspension:
      Rotary screw-type spring hook
    • Housing:
      Orange high impact nylon
    • Cable drum:
      Abrasion-resistant nylon
    • Cable:
      High-strength anti-rotation steel cable with elastic cable stop buffer and screw-type spring hook for load suspension. The cable can be continuously adjusted lengthwise via a cable wedge.
    • Spring:
      High-strength riveted cold rolled spring for 5 times the spring life.
    • Special features:
      Continuously adjustable and Version 7222 with ratchet lock.
