Flexible Rotor Balancing

Focused on flexible rotor balancing theory, this seminar breaks away from rigid rotor balancing in order to explore the dynamics of flexing rotors and the methods used to balance them. The topics covered target rotors where resonance and critical speeds are a concern and draw upon the core theories and fundamentals of balancing. During this course, balancing demonstrations are selected based on real case studies.

Other topics include:

  • Principles of rotor dynamics
  • Flexible rotor definitions
  • Balancing machine support systems
  • Flexible rotor balancing speed selection
  • Rotor flexibility test
  • Low speed balancing procedures
  • High speed balancing procedures
  • Types of flexible rotors
  • Critical speed determination
  • Balancing corrections in multiple planes
  • High speed balancing machines and software
  • Bode and Nyquist plots

This course is available as an on-site seminar
