What is on-site balancing?

Have you noticed that your machine is vibrating or shaking more than usual? Chances are, it's unbalanced. Everything that rotates needs to be in a state of balance in order to run smoothly while in operation. As machine speeds increase, the effects of an unbalance become more apparent. Today's technology offered by PMT allows accurate balancing right where the equipment sits. No more costly downtime due to a machine being removed and taken to a shop.

 

what are the effects of an unbalance?

  • Premature belt and/or bearing wear
  • Shaft damage
  • Frame damage
  • Structural damage
  • Increased amp draw

 

what can a Balance from pmt do for you?

PMT's on-site balance services can help eliminate downtime, saving you time and money. Some people say that balancing is never a problem. Nothing could be further from the truth. Bearings, housings, foundations, supports and structures all play a part in keeping your rotating equipment balanced. If one or more of these factors become highly loaded, the machine's life span can be significantly reduced. Vibration coming off the machinery can be transmitted to adjacent machines, affecting their performance.
