Rotor balancing is a complex tasks, however if performed correctly it can significantly increase the lifespan and performance of your machinery. In this post we investigate why it is important to use dynamic balancing for magnetic rotors
What is meant by dynamic balancing for magnetic rotors?
Magnetic rotors are integral to high performance, highly efficient electric machines in a range of industries including:
- Aerospace and defense
- Energy regeneration
Why dynamically balance magnetic rotors?
Magnetic rotor balancing is essential for many reasons. For instance, the majority of magnetic rotors operate at very high speeds and require very tight tolerances. Surprisingly, even the smallest amount of unbalance due to centrifugal forces during rotation will cause the assembly to vibrate. If left undetected, and as the rotational speed increases, so will the vibration, resulting in damage and premature component failure.
Dynamically balancing the magnetic rotor assembly will remove or minimise imbalance, allowing the rotor to run without vibration, and in turn extend its lifespan.
Why choose WDB Ltd?
With over 50 years’ experience delivering exceptional dynamic balancing services, the WDB Ltd team have consequently acquired an unrivalled depth of knowledge across a range of industries.
We are able to achieve extremely tight tolerances, using specially made non-magnetic equipment. Our handling expertise and use of protective materials means that we can significantly reduce the risk of foreign object damage (FoD) during balancing.
In addition, our high precision balancing machines have the capacity to dynamically balance any rotating part from just a few grams to 30 tonnes. We also balance to any ISO grade such as G0.4 to G6.3, and over a wide range of service speeds.
How do you improve the service life of your magnetic rotor assembly?
Specialist dynamic balancing will improve the service life, accuracy, and quality of your machinery by efficiently highlighting unbalanced components, saving your money in the long-run.
