Dynamic Balancing

A Specialist Balancing Company

A rotating system of mass is in dynamic balance when the rotation does not produce any resultant centrifugal force or couple. The system rotates without requiring the application, other than that required to support its weight. If a system is initially unbalanced, to avoid the stress upon the bearings caused by the centrifugal couple, counter balancing weights must be added. This is seen when a bicycle wheel gets buckled. The wheel will not rotate itself when stationary due to gravity as it is still statically balanced, but will not rotate smoothly as the centre of mass is to the side of the centre bearing. The spokes on a bike wheel need to be tuned in order to stop this and keep the wheel operating as efficiently as possible.

Dynamic Balancing capacities:

  • Vertical balancing up to 500kg and 1500mm diameter in both single and two plane configurations.
  • Horizontal balancing up to 6000kg and 3500mm diameter and 6500mm length on both hard and soft bearing machines in end and belt drive configurations.

And a range of other services:

  • Extensive machining facilities on a range of large and small milling and centre lathe machines along with various other ancillary machines.

Most producers of rotating equipment are convinced of the necessity of balancing. Balancing can improve a rotors performance thus increasing the life of the machine, however this procedure is rarely planned or fitted into the design stage of the manufacturing process.

Wilkinson Dynamic Balancing Ltd aims to change this situation.
