Principles of Balancing and of Balancing Machines
The construction and operating principles of several types of modern balancing machines are reviewed. Soft support, hard support, and resonant machines are described. Plane separation and the need for Wattmeter filtering are discussed in relation to balancing requirements and signal conditioning. Larger rotor facilities and automated production facilities are described.
