Dynamic Balancing

All components of an assembly that are required to rotate should be balanced, examples of such components are fans, rotors, impellers and shafts. Imbalance in a part causes unwanted vibration which in turn can cause many other problems such as increased wear to components, loud noise and discomfort,  decreased performance of components and catastrophic failure.

Dynamic balancing is a method of measuring the imbalance in a component using electronic equipment whilst the part is rotated at high speeds, once imbalance is measured it can be corrected by adding or removing material from a part in the appropriate location and in some cases a part may become imbalanced due to bending and can be corrected using a procedure of straightening.

At our UK based facility in Poole, Dorset we can provide balancing services for anything up to 3 tonnes. We use an overhead crane with 8 metres below it’s 2 hooks which are capable of carrying up to 10 tonnes as well as a forklift with a rated capacity of 2.5 tonnes.
