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.

 

Machinery Balancing

At Vibration Free we are committed to removing harmful vibrations from industrial machinery and vehicles. We are one of the most accomplished providers of dynamic balancing in the world, having worked with customers from all around the globe. Our services cover many different industries, from manufacturing to chemical processing and transportation. We have even had the pleasure to work with motorsports companies (a sport we are particularly passionate about). In everything we do we strive to be the best and deliver the finest results.

All machinery will be prone to vibrations in one form or another. If the problem is allowed to persist it can have a dramatic effect on the longevity, accuracy and even the safety of the device. Over time a vibration can wear away components, cause them to heat up or shake them loose completely. This will damage the device and ensure you face much higher repair bills. During use an annoying vibration can easily have an impact on the quality of the finish. In an engineering sense, where just a few millimetres are the difference between safety and danger, this is particularly unacceptable.

At Vibration Free we can provide a full vibration analysis of industrial machinery and all types of vehicle. One of our well trained technicians will complete a full diagnostic and find the root cause of the problem. Once we have that information we can decide what kind of repair and maintenance services you need. All diagnostics are carried out by our experienced team to ensure they are as accurate as possible. In some cases the problem may be caused by several factors but we can bring all of them to light and find a solution for you.

The best way to protect industrial equipment is to have it regularly checked and balanced if necessary. We are highly experienced at conducting machinery balancing services. Our talented team can work on both rotating and reciprocating equipment, including everything from high speed tooling machines to compressors and motors. We take pride in our ability to take on complex jobs and balance even the most sophisticated machinery.

A great by-product of balancing alongside the obvious benefits of safety, effectiveness and wear reduction is the fact that it decreases noise. If components are misaligned they can make a terrible noise and make your site very unpleasant. Well balanced machines should be quieter and more efficient.

If you have any questions about balancing or vibration analysis please feel free to get in touch. We are always happy to offer advice and assist you wherever we can. As a global leader in our field we always promise the best service. Call us today on + 44 (0) 1869 345535 or + 44 (0) 7774 468726 for further information.
