automobile and truck brake disks manufactured around
the world are balanced or at least checked for balance.
Various correction methods are used, including adding
weights. But the most common method today is removing
the unbalance by milling. Vibrasys offers a variety
of machine solutions depending on production volume.
The machine shown is a 3 station, fully automatic balancer
for disk brakes. The photo shows the clamping of the
part. After the mill plunges into the part, the entire
clamping fixture with part rotates through an angle
determined by the amount of unbalance.
