MCU Balance - Sensorless Unbalance Detection

for rotary tables with direct torque drive

Consistently high workpiece quality, optimum tool life and a long machine service life require low-vibration operation. The early detection and elimination of impermissible machine vibrations is an essential prerequisite in this regard.

mcuBalance is easy to retrofit and identifies the smallest imbalances by means of drive-internal signals.

The operator receives clear instructions for action.  Mass of balance weight and the exact position on the rotary table are displayed in graphic and tabular form.

Mass of balance weight and the exact position on the rotary table are displayed in graphic and tabular form.

This solution's special feature is its ability to measure even at low rotational speeds. An advantage that is especially relevant when machining large parts, since the speeds required by sensor-based systems are not possible due to masses.
