Multiplane Balancing – Zero Imbalance or Specified Imbalance

In the DATS Multiplane Balancing Software, there are two options, optimise for ‘Zero imbalance’ or optimise for ‘Specified imbalance’, but what is the objective of these two options?

Multiplane balancing to a “Zero Imbalance”

This as the name suggests will reduce the imbalance in the shaft to the least amount possible.

It is very difficult to balance multiple planes to zero imbalance as there is always a trade off from one plane to the another. However, the Prosig Multiplane Balancing software will find the best solution to reduce the imbalance on all planes to the lowest level possible.

This would be the idea solution.

Multiplane balancing to a “Specified Imbalance”

In a production environment however the ideal solution is not always desired. For example, some compromise could be made if a small imbalance did not adversely effect the shaft and the machine, but decreased the cost of manufacture dramatically.

But how would a development engineer know where the line between zero imbalance and an acceptable imbalance lay?

The only way to truly know would be to test certain shafts at varying levels of imbalance. At this point the Prosig Multiplane Balancing software offers a solution unlike any other. It has the facility to specify an imbalance level and have the software balance to that rather than zero.

The perfect development tool and the perfect production tool!
