1 Plane Measuring and Balancing Machine for Railway Carriage Wheels Type BVW-F

The machine type BVW is a hard-bearing (force measuring) balancing machine, designed to process disc shaped rotors with large diameters and high weights. Both determination of unbalance and mass removal for correction takes place in one clamping (one station). The rotor may be loaded either manually (lifting gear) or automatically (robot or loading gantry).
