By way of example, the VibroDAQ portable system allows one and two-plane rotor balancing, and is equipped with an LCD touchscreen display. Sophisticated algorithms are used for grinding wheel balancing and control, meeting ISO1940 requirements. This device is provided with USB 2.0 (high speed, full speed) and RS-232 communication interfaces.

Similarly, VibroDAQ 4 is a measurement system for the multi-plane balancing of different rotor types. The system allows one, two, three and four-plane rotor balancing, as well as vibration measurements (including FFT).

Master Abrasives already sells a comprehensive range of machinery and equipment, and the addition of balancing equipment allows the company to offer a complete package for grinding and finishing, along with technical applications advice.

Ian Meredith, applications engineering manager, says: “The VibroDAQ basic balancer and advanced balancer will be available for use and demonstration in our grinding and finishing showroom, alongside our grinding machines, coolant nozzles and abrasives.”
