ConsultancyMost of us have experienced the vibration through the car steering caused by the tyres being out of balance! If it is not addressed, how it will wear out tyres, wheel bearings, and also the driver!

There are many other rotating parts, where balance is extremely important in order to minimise wear, noise and vibration, and if corrected can provided extended machine life, reduce down time and of course maintenance costs.

There are several areas where we at Andrews Precision can add our expertise to assist our customers:-

Product Design – to use our experience to check designs to minimise potential balance problems, by “designing out” possible problems. A small amount of money spent at this stage is well worth the effort.

Assembly Processing – to examine the assembly operations to make recommendations on how components can be best assembled to minimise out of balance situations

Balancing tools and processes – the design, manufacture and testing of suitable processes and tooling.

We can provide Consultancy on your premises, or we are quite happy for you to bring your problems to us to examine and report on. We will agree either a daily or hourly charge based on discussion of your requirements.

Our experience tells us that balancing problems sometime appear from the most unlikely sources – the list below may surprise some:-

  • Armatures
  • Cams
  • Camshafts
  • Clutches
  • Driveshafts
  • Gears
  • Pinions
  • Rollers
