Rotor Balancing Services
Static And Dynamic Balancing Services With Vibration Analysis
Macfab provides unmatched Rotor Balancing services to ensure reliability and efficiency in your equipments. We use modern electronic balancing equipment to meet the ISO industry regulations. Our services also include analysis and elimination of vibrations for all parts under static and/or dynamic unbalancing.
Our state-of-the-art equipment meet your needs for balancing of rotors, shafts, gas turbine components, machine spindle, and other rotating components. With a team of highly skilled technicians, we handle rotor balancing projects for all multi-stage rotors and power transmission components.
Rotor Balancing Services For Medical Research Equipment
Our capabilities include rotor balancing of small to medium sized components like shaft stubs, and even small equipment weighing only a few grams. Especially in the medical research field, rotating parts are so tiny that they have to be balanced against their weight. And it becomes almost impossible to belt drive them.
Thus, these parts need precision machining to cancel the counter effect of weights and avoid vibrations. Our machinists treat them as fixture units in the balancer. For example, in a blower, balances and force corrections are done by pricking the corners of impeller blades.
Rotor Balancing Services For Aerospace Industry Equipment
For the aerospace industry, weight and vibrations are critical to ensure safety. At Macfab, we employ high-speed electronic rotors for obtaining correct results.
Benefits Of Balancing And Vibration Testing
Unbalance exists in a rotor when the mass centre axis is different to its running centre axis. Practically all newly machined parts are non-symmetrical due to blow holes in castings, uneven number and position of bolt holes, parts fitted off-centre, machined diameters eccentric to the bearing locations etc.
An unbalanced rotor, when rotating, wants to revolve around its mass centre axis. Because the bearings restrict this movement, the centrifugal force, due to the unbalance, causes the rotor to vibrate. This vibration causes wear to the bearings, creates unnecessary noise, and, in extreme cases disintegration of the rotor itself can be experienced. It is therefore necessary to reduce the unbalance to an acceptable limit.
