Strengths of the PMB balancing technology for typical applications

Balancing systems and balancing machines for your application

The demands placed on rotating components, assemblies and products continue to rise, and operating speeds are becoming progressively higher. And the product variety of our customers is also constantly increasing. Users of our balancing technology therefore have the understandable wish for balancing machines that can be used flexibly for as many rotors as possible, even if they have high demands on the balancing quality to be achieved.

The modular design of our CAROBA®Balancers allows you to achieve both: highest precision and flexibility. With the bearing support modules (roller bearing blocks, slide bearings, PMB air bearings) and drives (DC drive, positioning and air drive), our balancing systems are highly adaptable.

Here you will find common applications from our balancing service and plant engineering practice as an orientation guide. In case you haven't found your application yet: Talk to us, the selection is constantly increasing and it is very likely we have already solved your task. We will find a good approach with you - or have already done so.

Balancing by application

Balancing of compressor wheels

Compressor wheels are used more and more frequently. They are used, for example, in exhaust gas turbochargers, hydrogen compressors, electric car compressors and air compressors. Some of the compressors are operated at speeds above 300,000 rpm.

Read here why highest precision is so important when balancing compressor wheels.

Balancing by application

Balancing of Turbine rotor / turbo rotor

The turbine rotor drives the compressor wheel and, as the heaviest rotating component of a turbo / turbine, it is one of the most important components of e.g. exhaust gas turbochargers.

Read here how to balance different types of turbine rotors precisely and economically.

Balancing by application

Balancing of spindles

High demands are placed on spindles: Spindles in scanners must rotate extremely precisely and free of vibrations, tool spindles must be able to withstand high loads while guiding the tool smoothly and precisely, and high-speed spindles must be able to permanently withstand the highest speeds.

Read here what is important when balancing spindles.

Balancing by application

Balancing of dental turbines

In dentists' handpieces, it is the dental turbines that drive the tool with compressed air and produce the unpleasant noise we all know. For good and preferably painless treatment, speeds of up to more than 500,000 rpm are required.

Read here how important balancing is for the speed and precision of dental turbines.

Balancing by application

Balancing of fans and fan wheels

The technology of fans and fan wheels is now fully integrated into our lives. They can be found everywhere around us. In PCs, game consoles, televisions, bathroom fans, motor vehicles etc. Three points play an increasingly important role: high speed to move a lot of air, reliability and very importantly, quiet operation.

Read here how important the balancing of fans is.

Balancing by application

Balancing of shafts

Shafts are an important central element in rotating assemblies - a wide variety of components are mounted on shafts, which places high demands on the shaft. If the shaft is poorly balanced, this has a direct effect on the rotating assembly.

Read here how to achieve the best quality by precise balancing of your shafts.

Balancing by application

Balancing of electric rotors / electric anchors

The electric rotor / electric anchor as the rotating part of an electric motor is decisive for the smooth running of the motor. In the most cases this assembly is mounted, i.e. composed of several individual parts. Even with high-precision manufacturing of the individual parts, this assembly to the rotor results in an unavoidable imbalance.

Read here what balancing can do for you.

Balancing by application

Balancing of high-speed electric rotors / electric anchors

A high-speed electric rotor / electric anchor places special demands on the balancing quality due to its high speed. As motor shafts in electric turbochargers, compressors, hydrogen pumps and also in modern vacuum cleaners, these components sometimes rotate at well over 100,000 rpm.
