Balance your Flexible Rotors with the Multiplane Technology

New requirements, related to downsizing and speed increase, generate a renewed need for high speed machines balancing (up to 300 kRPM). Units to be balanced are typically turbochargers but also high speed pumps and turbines.

Because of speed and product geometry, the rotor typically behaves as a flexible one. Even if the number of balancing planes is one or two, the situation requires using the OROS multiplane balancing solution. Several speeds are necessary for calculating the correction masses and, for that reason, run ups or run downs are necessary.

The operation starts with a study for the validation of the balancing process using the standard solution. Then the second step is typically the integration of OROS instruments in machines for automated production.
