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.

VibeTrend is a simple App iPad to monitor overall RMS vibration amplitude levels for condition based maintenance.

Users can view vibration amplitude levels both in Acceleration (g) and Velocity (mm/sec) through a free “Dropbox” account. In addition, users are able to instantly graph and compare multiple vibration levels taken over a period of time, all in one easy-to-use graphical program. VibeTrend is a powerful data management software that manages all the key machinery operating conditions measured and analysed by the “VibePro” app.

VibeTrend will allow the user to save maintenance pounds by providing information in order to plan production for when necessary maintenance is needed. The software is a sophisticated central database that can be utilized as a communication tool for reporting and providing information on operating health of an asset.
