BALANCING of Rotating Machinery
Balancing of Rotating Machinery
This course covers single plane balancing in detail and introduces dual plane balancing for rotating machines. It includes both field balancing and shop balancing techniques. Topics such as pre-balance checks, influence coefficients, static-couple and course workshops are included. This course is partial preparation for the ISO 18436-2:2014 Vibration Analyst Category III & Category IV Certification Exams and the Balancing Specialist Exam by the Vibration Institute.
Columbus, Ohio - June 14th-18th
Balancing of Rotating Machinery
BRM covers single and basic two-plane balancing techniques. It includes both field balancing and shop (balancing machine) balancing. Topics such as pre-balance checks, inﬂuence coefficients, balance quality and tolerances, residual unbalance testing and case histories are included. It is partial preparation for the Vibration Analyst Category III and IV Certification Exams, and Balancing Specialist Exam.
All registered attendees in the Balancing of Rotating Machinery training course will receive:
The BRM training is a four and one-half day course and will begin at 1:00 p.m. and conclude at 6:00 p.m. on Monday. It will then begin at 8:00 am and conclude at 5:00 pm daily Tuesday through Friday. Subject to change.
Basic aspects of machine balancing, single plane balancing, two plane balancing techniques, turbine generator balancing, roll balancing, fan balancing and shop balancing.
There is a workshop supporting each chapter. The student will test their knowledge and understanding of the material presented for that chapter by completing the workshops during the time allowed in class. The instructor will then review the workshop with the class. The student’s time and understanding of the work shop materials will aid them in their preparation for the exam.
