Dynamic Balancing

Simply defined, machine balance involves the placement of a rotating component of any size, shape and material in an environment where it can rotate freely and only gravity can affect it. If there is any eccentricity, gravity will pull the heaviest most uneven portion to the lowest point in rotation. Take a simple shaft with a smaller diameter bearing section at each end; If during the machining process the turned sections were not machined 100% concentric, unbalance will occur.

Now, imagine this in an actual working environment, a balanced piece of rotating equipment will normally rotate around it's centerline, which is also it's center of gravity. If you introduce some form of excess weight (dust, dirt or other substances) to the units surface, centrifugal forces will cause the center of gravity
to shift. The rotating component is being forced to rotate on it's centerline by the bearings, but centrifugal force is trying to make the component rotate around it's center of gravity. This results in unbalance, which you see and hear as vibration. Our job is to determine if that unbalance is within ISO tolerances, or if modifications are needed. Using the latest technology, and backed by over 35 years of experience in the field of dynamic balancing, we can correct any type of unbalance.

      Unbalance can occur in three different types:

1.

Static Unbalance

2.

Quasi-Static Unbalance

3.

Couple Unbalance

It is the job of a Wade Dynamics Balancing Technician to determine which
type of unbalance is occurring and the best method of correction.  We have the capabilities to balance anything from a few grams in weight up to 5000 lbs!
