Machine Tools

Poor finish, ovality, chatter and reduced tool life can all be consequences of excessive imbalance on the tool, tool holder, spindle or drive motor.

Condition Based Maintenance

An important part of modern maintenance strategy must include, where appropriate, the effective use of condition monitoring. The choice of monitoring equipment and its operating costs can be staggering.

High Speed Electric Motors

Balancing electric motors is essential, balancing high speed electric motors needs further focus on assembly tolerances and often proof balancing of the built up housing assembly. Vibration Free proof balance to 18,000 RPM

Vibration Free is based in Oxfordshire and is easily accessible to the M40 (near junction 10) and the M1. Our workshop facility has various balancing machines that handle rotors up to 3000kg, a small machine shop and training room. Two car ramps are available for in-situ vehicle analysis.

Dynamic Table Engine Balancing

Vibration in an engine regardless of its source, is detrimental to power, performance and longevity. Vibration is wasted energy and it can be greatly reduced by balancing all the rotating and reciprocating parts to finer tolerances than traditionally found in common practice.

Large FD Fan Balancing

Vibration Free support many aspects through the design and build process. Assisting companies to reduce build costs and maximise product quality and performance.

Marine Engine and Gearbox Vibration Analysis

Vibration Free often work on site to resolve vibration issues across all industrial sectors

Shredding Machine

As components wear and cutters, blades, hammers are renewed often trim balancing is required. As with hedge cutters, toppers, shredder rotors and decanters.

 

Consultancy and training for vibration free balancing

Balancing and tuning will be required at some stage for almost every kind of machinery. Even if the conditions and setting are considered optimal, the natural wear and tear from regular operation means it is vital to regularly maintain and service machinery in order to maintain the highest performance levels. While we are happy to deliver this much needed servicing work for your equipment, we are also available to provide help and training at the first phase of machinery design and building.

Whether the work involves automobile design or the creation of new engineering equipment, one of the biggest challenges in moving from theory and design through to practical production is addressing balance and minimising the possibility of vibration. There are often unforeseeable differences between the way machinery is designed to work on paper and the way it actually performs in practice. Our consultancy services are designed to help you identify and address these issues, and our training courses are designed to enhance your own ability to resolve them in the future.

We go beyond straightforward troubleshooting and suggesting solutions. Instead, we view our consultancy work as an involved and dynamic process. To effectively address any vibration or dynamic balancing issues, we always seek to understand the purpose of the equipment, as well as the environment in which it will function. By doing so, we can provide a long term, informed solution that will ensure optimal performance and longevity from the machinery.

Our consultancy work is complemented by our training services. Whether it is at our purpose designed premises or on site at your location, we are always ready to arrange highly involved training sessions so we can pass on our knowledge and help you to build the foundation for success in your business. We instruct and train your staff to help them learn how to anticipate vibration and balancing issues, and enable you to seek successful resolutions.

We are committed to delivering the most comprehensive and successful vibration analysis and dynamic balancing services available in the UK. Whether it is through our direct work in balancing machinery and equipment, or by providing our professional consultancy and training services, we present a peerless service to help the British engineering industry remain at the forefront of excellence.
