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.

Anti Vibration Kit for the BMW 100XR

BMW 1000 XR anti-vibration kit

BMW 1000 XR Handlebar vibration is caused by engine vibration exciting the handlebar into resonance of certain rpm, It is fixed by using a damper kit sold by Vibration Free for £49.50 +P+P.+ VAT

This kit is easily fitted in less than 20 mins and cures 90% of the vibration, felt by damping out the resonant response felt of the handlebar grips.

Engine Damper for the Rover K

sterling-rattler-master-logo-colour-30-11-16-sideon   kseries-pulloutdraw  roverk-side_clipped_rev_1


No more broken cranks!

The Sterling Rattler Rover K series crankshaft damper from Vibration Free;

  • Absorbs more torsional vibration than its alternatives.
  • Reduces crankshaft fatigue and increase longevity.
  • Vibration is absorbed over entire engine rpm.
  • More efficient over elastomeric or friction based dampers.
  • No or little wear over entire life of engine.
  • No maintenance. Solid hub, so timing marks more accurate.
  • In many engines produces power gains as spark scatter reduced.
  • A British product made from EN24T, fully nitride hardened and “bullet proof”.


Vibration Free also make the Damper pulley and the camshaft gear sprocket, which gives a better register onto the nose of the crankshaft.

The Sterling Rattler & SR Flywheel

The Sterling Rattler

Following on from the success of the TCI Rattler Vibration Free now manufacture in the UK  the Sterling Rattler for use on European derived car engines

No more broken cranks!


Add  Power, Reliability & Reduce Stress

Add a Sterling Rattler Torsional Vibration absorber to your crank

A high performance vibration absorber means lower vibrations, less crankshaft twist and increased power.

An alternative to crankshaft dampers that only dissipate vibration as heat


We have Sterling Rattlers available for the following engines:

Aston Martin,  Jaguar, Subaru,  Ford Cosworth,  Mini,  MGB,  Healey, Rover V8, TR6 and many more
