Manual Balancing
[ open full article ]

Manual Balancing permits the operator to balance the wheel before operation by adjusting two or three moveable balance weights that are placed in grooves in the wheel flange or wheel  hub, and which can be independently positioned.  Consisting of a computer control unit, a vibration sensor and an RPM sensor, the SBS manual balancing solution detects and measurement the imbalance, calculates the compensation needed to eliminate the imbalance and guides the operator in manually placing the balance weights at calculated positions.  This solution provides a lower cost alternative for dedicated machine tool balancing.
