Accurate Balancing Equipment(ABE) manufacturers special purpose Balancing Machines for various applications which include assembly balancing, high speed balancing, overhanging orientation rotor balancing etc.
For Assembly balancing , rotors are driven with their own drive i.e. in assembled condition e.g. motor fan assembly, radiator fan assembly etc.
The resultant benefit emerging from this arrangement is that the component is balanced at its operating speed and in actual operating conditions, thus achieving better balancing accuracy.
For high speed balancing applications , machines are designed for over speed testing of flexible rotors like Propeller Shafts, Drive Shafts etc.
The rotor is first balanced at slow speed and then balanced at the operating speed and subsequently at higher speeds above the critical frequency of the rotor.
