Definition: Balancing Machines

If the rotation axis of a component deviates from its principal axis of inertia, this is referred to as unbalance. Balancing machines identify the causes of such unbalance and compensate for them. The balancing is done partly by material removal, and partly through the use of weights, as for example on car rims. Some balancing machines can be used for several components, others are designed for special components such as gas turbines or aircraft engines. High-quality machines from SCHENCK, HOFMANN and so on provide good service even as used. At Surplex you will find a balancing machine (or balancer) from these and many other manufacturers. Even with a recent year of construction!

Balancing machines used in industry

During industrial manufacturing it is important to ensure that manufactured components are balanced, in order to ensure a low-vibration cycle. This particularly applies for parts that turn at very high speeds. A balancing machine is made out of an encased base frame.The room, within which the workpiece will be processed, contains corresponding supports used to clamp in the workpiece. Power is then used to rotate the workpiece and sensors or other devices automatically detect if the workpiece is unbalanced. By noting the engineering tolerance, the mass of the workpiece is distributed.
  • Low-vibration cycles require balanced components
  • Automatic recognition of the unbalance of the workpiece
  • Adjustment through the removal of mass or the implementation of a counterweight

The method used depends on the workpiece. The balancing of a car wheel is commonly done by adding weights to the rim. The balancing of rotors for electric motors is done by drilling into the short circuit ring. Modern balancing machines used in industry are available in varying degrees of automation. They can also be installed on automatic production lines and can run without a machine.

Areas of application and examples of balancing machines

Balancing machines are particularly useful for industrial manufacturing and the automotive industry. This machine is used to balance belt pulleys, pump wheels and brake discs, and rotors for electric motors, generators and turbines. All tools used in the machining process, particularly lathes, are balanced before use. Otherwise, high levels of rotation would lead to oscillation and excessive wear and tear on the tools.
