Balanced Grinding,  Critical to Quality and Efficiency

SBS offers a variety of solutions to your balancing and process monitoring needs, including fully automatic dynamic balancing, manual balancing and process monitoring through the use of acoustic emission sensors and analyzers.

SB1000Manual balancing consists of a manual balance control unit, a vibration sensor and a RPM sensor.

Auto BalancingAuto balancing solution is elegantly simple: a computer control panel, a vibration sensor, spindle mounted adaptor and a balance head (either external or internal to the spindle).

Process MonitoringProcess monitoring consists of an AE control panel or card and an acoustic sensor.

SOLUTIONS TO IMPROVE QUALITY AND THROUGHPUT

Uncorrected vibration in the grinding process is the enemy of part quality and operational efficiency.  One of the primary causes of vibration in grinding machine operation is the existence of imbalance in the grinding wheel.  Imbalance is often due to the heterogeneous nature of grinding wheel construction.  A wheel contains a great number of unevenly distributed grains, which cause intrinsic imbalance.  This imbalance is compounded by a variety of factors, including incorrect mounting of the wheel, varying widths of the wheel, coolant absorption into the wheel and imbalance in the mandrel or arbor, etc.  Even carefully established wheel balance, considering all the variables, will not last long, even with advanced pre-balancing technology.  Due to wear and frequent dressing of the wheel, the rotational dynamics of a grinding wheel are always changing.  For these reasons, balancing of grinding wheels has long been recognized as a critical step in the production process, ensuring part quality and improving production efficiency.
