Advanced Balancing Theory and Applications

Advanced Balancing Theory and Applications

Often used in succession to our Balancing Theory & Applications course, this program covers many similar topics in more detail. Universal balancing concepts are presented at a higher level with emphasis on rotor tolerances, high speed rotor balancing and practical design considerations to streamline production. You'll learn the theory behind rigid and flexible rotors and specific applications of ISO 1940 and ISO 11342. You'll also study the use of tooling on production applications, the potential error sources and how it can affect balancing tolerances. The selection of the appropriate balancing machine will be covered using real case studies as examples.
Other topics include:

  • Operating Principles of hard and soft bearing balancing machines
  • Applied ISO tolerance specifications
  • Principles of rotor dynamics:
    • – Resonance
    • – Relationship of vibrating system to harmonic excitation of unbalance
    • – Phase response to unbalance
    • – Relationship of force and displacement
  • Tooling:
    • – Influence of run outs and fit tolerances
    • – Proper indexing techniques
  • Determine the correct tooling for the job
  • Flexible rotor balancing
    • – Instrumentation tips and techniques using CAB690
    • – Balancing corrections in three planes
    • – Tolerance specifications as applied to rigid & flexible rotors
    • – High speed balancing machines and computer aided balancing of flexible rotors (CABFLEX++)
  • Modern instrumentation usage for indication of balance, whip, Nyquist plots and their application
    to advanced balancing methods.
  • Vibration analysis
