Universal Balancing has introduced its V100S vertical-axis balancing machine with automatic mill correction.

Offering high accuracy and repeatability, the machine is capable of handling any component weighing up to 100kg that requires the correction of unbalance by milling.

The self-contained V100S can be fully integrated into high-speed automated production lines with the deployment of pick-and-place robots.

Workpiece loading/unloading and manual correction is avoided and machines can be added or removed from the line in order to meet changing production volumes, ensuring a continuous operation.

The machine features a high unbalance reduction ratio of 99.65 per cent.

The milling head, which gives 300Nm cutting torque, is able to accommodate axial through to radial positions and cuts arc angles of up to 180 degrees in the part on the rotary table.

It can be adjusted to allow different cut angles for a range of components.

The height and radii of the milling cut changes automatically for each part.

A high-suction extraction vacuum removes virtually all metal chips produced by the mill cutting process.

A 10in (25cm) precision air chuck offers 2.5-micron repeatability with interchangeable jaws clamping on the inside or outside diameters of parts – even those incorporating a shaft (such as the pump impeller).

With a compact footprint of 2.2 x 2.4 x 1.3m including extractor, the V100S is capable of balancing in one or two planes.

The jaws can be changed in less than two minutes and the milling cutter in less than one minute.

The mill head position adjusts in a matter of seconds at the touch of a button, thanks to the use of servo motors.

The V100S is being used within a range of industries to balance components such as brake drums and discs, impellers, differential parts or others with or without their own journals that require correction by milling.

The touch-screen-operated measuring system for the V100S features displays available in imperial, metric and multiple-unit options (including gmm, gcm and ozinch), automated machine procedures for tooling compensation and calibration and advanced proving routines.

Part/batch serial numbers can be recorded for quality- and process-control purposes.

All information for individual jobs, including setup, correction and calibration, is stored permanently, enabling fast retrieval when required.

Results can be logged to a file, SQL database, printer, network or serial port, while advanced diagnostics allow fault analysis to be carried out both on site and remotely through the internet.

Four-level password protection locks down functions within a module or for whole pages.
