TM 170: Static and Dynamic Balancing Apparatus

Print Ask to this Articlel

Static and Dynamic Balancing Apparatus

Product Details

Technical Description 
The main element of the benchtop unit is a smooth shaft to which four variable unbalance weights can be attached at any angle or distance. The rotor is supported horizontally in ball bearings and is driven by a speed-controlled motor. The speed is measured electronically and shown on a digital display. For determination of the unbalance weight by measuring the balance of moments the driving belt can be removed. Using different weights dragging on the pulley defined moments can be exerted to the shaft. They can be compared with those caused by the unbalance weights when rotating. The transparent hood prevents contact with the rotating parts and provides a good view of the rotor. Fastening of the supporting base with elastic elements neutralizes undesirable vibrations.
