Rotor Balancing Services

Why Dynamic Rotor Balancing?

All rotating machinery is susceptible to unbalance, even when properly manufactured to a tight tolerance a skewed accumulation of allowable values may result. When system vibration occurs which can lead to quick wear of components and even system failure. System vibration can be caused by internal metallurgical anomalies. An unbalance caused by additional mass on one side of a rotor is called static or force unbalance. Even if a force is balanced by another equal force in the opposite plane (ie no static unbalance) there can still be what is known as a couple or dynamic unbalance. This occurs because during rotation the forces can give rise to vibration. Even though a rotor may be symmetrical and statically force balanced, it can still be unbalanced. Together, these force and coupled unbalances create what is called the combined unbalance.

Artec serves to provide Rotor Balancing for a wide array of rotating machinery including:

  • Couplings
  • Shafts
  • Rotors
  • Gears
  • Hubs

Through the use of Dynamic Balancing, this combined unbalance can be detected, measured, and corrected.
