Active balancing

HydroBalancer HB 6000

The active balancing system HB 6000 compensates rotor unbalance during the rotation using fluids. Balancing is achieved using ring containers which are divided into four chambers.

Balancing System HydroBalancer HB 6000
  • Features
    • Balancing during rotation in one or two planes with unbalance monitoring.
    • Balancing with the help of fluids, e.g. cooling lubricants of a grinding machine.
    • High precision balancing through extremely fine fluid metering up to very high rotational speeds.
    • Space-saving integration of the ring container in the machine spindle or rotor.
    • Pre-balancing software for manual correction of basic unbalance; HB 6000 then only balances the new operational unbalances.
    • Also suitable for retrofitting existing machines.
    • Compatible replacement for Hofmann HK 5000 balancing systems incl. type BM sensors.
    • Cost effective solution.
  • Applications
    • Automatic (active) balancing of grinding wheels and grinding spindles or other rotors.
    • Balancing during operation without having to stop the machine.
