Balancing to improve accuracy

When manufacturing in bulk, accuracy is very important because even a small inconsistency can cause big problems. Machines all need to be set properly and must be functioning accurately to ensure each product is made to the right dimensions. As part of this, each piece of rotary equipment needs to be inspected and balanced when necessary. This will ensure it rotates properly and produces accurate products.

Dynamic balancing should be an important part of the maintenance of your machinery because it will protect accuracy and reduce wear on parts. With rotating equipment there is always a slight vibration because it is very difficult to get parts properly balanced to the true centre of mass. In most cases the vibrations don’t cause problems, but when they get beyond a certain point they will cause components to grind together, resulting in wear and inaccuracy. This means you’ll need to replace parts more frequently and results in more downtime for the device.

Machinery used to make products in bulk needs to be checked frequently and balanced whenever there is a problem. The frequency of usage means that there is higher potential for issues to develop. Your maintenance needs to reflect this risk and ensure equipment is properly inspected.

Dynamic balancing is the process of getting rotary parts as close to the centre of mass as possible. There are several ways to do this, including adding or removing weight or machining components. The process takes a great deal of care and weights need to be added or removed slowly to ensure the balance is accurate.

If you are worried about the balance of any type of rotary machinery, whether it is a machine for manufacturing or a vehicle it is best to get professional advice. Working on machinery takes experience and you need to be careful not to inadvertently damage the equipment in the process. The best option is to have a specialist do the job for you.
