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.

 

Why do I need dynamic balancing?

Balancing is the process of eliminating or correcting the effects of inertia forces acting on the components of a machine, avoiding any vibrations that may be a result of any couples. Vibrations can take away the majority of a machine’s efficiency and, over time, this can lead to a lot of damage resulting in expensive repair costs.

Machinery that is at high risk of damage from long-term vibration include generators, compressors, electric motors, turbines, pumps, high-speed tooling machines and fans so if you work with these, it’s important to have them regularly maintained. Unchecked machinery not only poses the risk of further, more expensive damage, but can even lead to catastrophic injuries.

With over 25 years of experience, Vibration Free is the first choice for dynamic balancing services in the UK and offer extensive services for all kinds of customers. Whether you work in waste management, manufacturing, motor sport or oil and gas we are able to deliver exceptional results and reliability. We’ve invested in some of the latest technology, high-tech machinery and staff training to make sure that our applications can be as wide and varied as possible, subsequently providing our customers with a service that is second to none.

If your vehicle is experiencing slight vibrations, don’t wait until it is too late; leaving a vibration could lead to bigger, more expensive problems in the future.
