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.

 

Dynamic balancing improves the efficiency of mechanical equipment

All mechanical items with moving parts, from vehicles to lathes, are prone to wear and damage when they are used frequently. Keeping them balanced is the best way to minimise these effects and to help ensure you get the most accurate results in your work. The last thing you want is to find yourself facing high repair bills and poor performance because machinery is misaligned.

Dynamic balancing can be used to balance any type of mechanical equipment. The process involves removing excess weight and ensuring it is evenly spread out. This helps to keep machinery and vehicles functioning as intended and means they will last for much longer and require less downtime for repairs. Balancing also improves efficiency.

Before you try to balance a machine it needs to be surveyed to find the source of the problem. If you rush in and start removing parts without knowing where the problem originates you could cause unintentional damage or make it worse. By surveying you can find the issue and the most efficient way to resolve it. The information will also serve you in the future because you’ll know where to start looking if issues happen again.

Dynamic balancing can be very complex and requires a great deal of care and precision. If done wrong you can make the machinery or vehicle dangerous to use and put people at risk. For peace of mind and to avoid costly damages you should hire a professional company to do the work for you. This will also free you from needing to purchase expensive equipment.
