Our Software options

CAROBA® Soft Software options

Outstanding solutions to extend the balancing system for more functions, automation and comfort.

In addition to our standard balancing software, we offer a variety of additional functions that make balancing easier and the daily work with our balancing systems even easier. Modern balancing methods, integration into higher-level control systems, simplified fully automatic operation of your balancing systems, configurable reports at the touch of a button and much more - choose the perfect addition. Special requests or specific functions can be programmed into the balancing software at any time.

We offer standard software options for the following areas:

Balancing methods

Festorte-Icon-software-PMB
Fixed locations (uniformly distributed)

Specification of the compensation instruction for uniformly distributed fixed locations instead for angles. Simplifies and accelerates the manual balancing process for the operator.

Verbotene-Zonen-PMB
Forbidden zones (fixed locations unequally distributed)

Definition of positions at which no mass compensation may or can be carried out. Thereby defining at which points the unbalance is to be compensated.

axial-bohren-auswuchten-PMB
Axial drilling

Correction of unbalance by axial drilling. Output of the required drilling depth with previously defined characteristic values of the drilling tool and the object to be balanced.

Bohren-Radial-PMB
Radial drilling

Correction of unbalance by radial drilling. Output of the required drilling depth with previously defined characteristic values of the drilling tool and the object to be balanced.  Consideration of the different consequences at different depths and therefore different effective radius.

Schrauben-radial-auswuchten-PMB
Screws radial

Correction of the unbalance by screwing in or out screws (e.g. grub screws) in threaded holes. The number of rotations required for balancing, in or out, is displayed.

3-Massen-Ausgleich-PMB
3-mass balancing

An additive correction method, chip-free, easy to use and highly accurate. From a graded stock of balancing weights (e.g. 4 variants) a solution is calculated for a given number of balancing points (e.g. 8 points/circumference), in which 3 of the weights are simultaneously specified at 3 positions in such a way that the result is a highly accurate balancing.

Spreizwinkel-auswuchten-PMB
Spreading angels

Indication of the angle for the rotation of balancing discs relative to each other.

Umschlagverfahren-auswuchten-PMB
Index balancing

Index balancing mathematically eliminates the influences of the clamping device (e.g. a spindle...) on the workpiece clamped on it. You achieve better balancing results when balancing on spindles.

Magnetwuchten-PMB
Magnetic balancing

Balancing is always the elimination of outward acting unbalance forces. When balancing highly magnetic rotating parts, these can be influenced by the earth’s magnetic field. This option calculates this influence and thus enables significantly better balancing results. Even without this option, our balancing systems are “magnet-capable”. However, with this option, you will balance significantly better than your market competitors.

3-Ebenen-Wuchten-PMB
3 plane balancing

The 3 plane balancing provides an additional compensation value for the centre of gravity plane, i.e. the static unbalance. This allows you to improve the static unbalance separately from the dynamic unbalance, whereby some rotor types benefit from better internal forces and torques. You remove the static unbalance in the centre of gravity, which means that less is to be removed in planes 1 and 2.

Comfort features

Berichtsfunktion-auswuchtsoftware-PMB
Report generation

Output of a freely configurable report about the balancing process in form of an HTML or PDF file.

Bewertungskriterien-Polardiagramm-PMB
Evaluation criteria

Coloured marking of the required / actual ranges in the polar diagram and the balancing instructions. The operator can see at a glance whether he has already reached the specifications. In automated balancing, this also determines when the automated process transfers the balancing object as good or as reject to the workpiece handling.

Mittelwertbildung-analysesoftware-PMB
Averaging function

Calculates the average of several measurements. Individual measurements and average values are plotted in the diagrams so that you can see the quality of your setup at a glance. External influences on the result are minimized, limits of reproducible balancing are pushed to better balancing results.

Statistik-analysesoftware-PMB
Statistics

Generation and output of statistics with key data such as mean value, scattering and distribution of the unbalance values for series balancing. Freely configurable input data. Very helpful to reveal systematic influences in pre-production and then, for example, to revise injection moulding tools so that less balancing is required.

Kalibrierung-bearbeiten-Auswuchtsoftware-PMB
Cal editing

Helpful for setting up new balancing tasks. You can subsequently change the information given during calibration and thus correct the calibration. For example, you can subsequently shorten runup ramps that were initially set too large and thus conserve process time.

Oberfläche-reduziert-PMB
Reduced user interface

User interface reduced for simplified operation. Particularly suitable for manual balancing by semi-skilled assistants. The full user interface can be unlocked by machine setters with a password.

Oberfläche-benutzerdefiniert-auswuchtsoftware-PMB
User defined interface

Work surface of the balancing software defined according to your specifications. The full user interface can be unlocked by machine setters with a password.

Ramp-up balancing

Rampenwuchten-auswuchtloesung-PMB
Ramp-up balancing

Instead of measuring at fixed rotational speed, the run-up is recorded and used

to calculate the balancing solution. This allows you to change the balancing speed

simply by moving a cursor without the need for an additional run. This is a great simplification when setting up new balancing tasks, especially for rotors with difficult to control rotational speed.

Rampenwuchten-1-Sensor-PMB
Ramp-up balancing 1 sensor for 2 planes

An extension to ramp-up balancing, which is particularly advantageous for high-speed rotors (turbo, dental turbines...). Instead of 2 sensors and one evaluation speed, 1 sensor and 2 evaluation speeds are used. This has advantages for rotors that behave partially elastic at high speeds.

Rampentabs-wuchten-PMB
Ramp-up diagrams unbalance + delta

Extension for the ramp-up balancing. Additional diagrams with unbalance over speed and unbalance difference between two balancing operations (delta) over speed are displayed. Helpful for selecting the optimal balancing speed when setting up new balancing tasks.

rampenverfahren-EFK-PMB
Ramp-up diagrams transfer function + IC + process characteristics

These additional options for the ramp-up method support process developers for new balancing tasks and series balancing. If you would like more detailed information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

auswertungsassistent-analysesoftware-PMB
Analysis assistant

In the ramp-up balancing, analysis speeds are selected manually by the setter or operator. The analysis assistant automates this for tasks with challenging rotor behaviour. After a few test measurements, a preset of good settings is automatically generated.

Rampenwuchten-optimiert-PMB
Optimized ramp-up balancing

An extension of the ramp-up balancing. This method calculates solutions that are characterized by a minimum area under the acceleration curve. This special procedure is particularly used for series balancing in the production of turbochargers.

Extended evaluation

Selbstlernender-Algorithmus-auswuchtprogramm-PMB
Auto-learning algorithm

The software learns to automatically adjust the phase and magnitude of removal, even with gradually changing pre-production. This compensates for tool wear and reduces the number of removals per workpiece. Improves the cycle time.

0-Punkt-Offset-PMB
0-point offset

To balance to a specific unbalance (offset), you can specify it here. E.g. manual compensation of the unbalance of a balancing adapter. E.g. targeted unbalance of a component which is compensated by another targeted unbalance after assembly by other components.

Fortgeschrittene-Berechnungen-wuchtobjekt-PMB
Advanced Calculations

Extended information on characteristic values, calibration and the distribution of the unbalance over the bearings of the balancing object. Very well suited for simulating the effects of changes in the design of rotating parts (e.g. bearing distance) on the unbalance situation („What if..“).

abtragsrechner-auswuchtsoftware-PMB
Material removal calculator

For automated balancing systems, calculates the removal profile for unbalance correction with grinding or milling tools. Incl. internal logging (where mass already has been removed, it cannot be removed again in the following step).

Interface and automation

antriebssteuerung-PMB
Drive control

Control of drives by UMS (hardware, unbalance measuring system). Controls the drives of our complete systems as well as your own drives. Output of set values for DC motors, frequency inverters (VFD), air drives and CAN bus commands. Manual operation possible, automated remote control by the balancing software is the most used standard.

positionierung-wuchtobjekte-POS-PMB
POS

Module for controlling stepper motors for positioning the balancing objects for mass removal. For automated mass correction in machines or manual marking of the removal position by the operator.

Protokollierung-auswuchtsoftware-PMB
Logging

Creates a log file with one line for each individual balancing object. This line contains all relevant balancing values. Machine and human readable.

TCP-Api-fernsteuerung-PMB
TCP-API

Module for remote control of the balancing software via customer control programs. The connection is made via TCP protocol. Excellent solution for integration into superior automation controls.

Webservice-SAP-PMB
SAP web service

Characteristics of the balancing object are transferred directly from/to an SAP system installed at the customer’s site. Serial numbers are checked for plausibility, incorrect workpieces are reported to the operator. Balancing recipes (rotor file, calibration) are loaded according to the serial number. Our interface to Industry 4.0

Oberfläche-Status-software-PMB
User interface “Status”

Reduced status screen as user interface particularly suitable for automated operation. It is not possible for the operator to exert any influence. The full user interface can be activated by the setter with a password.
