Balancing Services

At Electronic Balancing Company, we provide expert, certified balancing services for both individual components and complete assemblies. We have the skills and equipment to balance parts weighing as little as 1/8 oz. up to large scale items measuring up to 50’ in length x 13’ in diameter and weighing up to 100 tons. Our ability to quickly identify and remediate out-of-balance conditions assures smooth-running, trouble-free operation of rotating components and machinery.

Mechanical vibration is a destructive force that can reduce the service life of rotating equipment. Leveraging our balancing services for new parts and equipment or after a repair reduces bearing load. Minimizing vibrational forces significantly decreases stress, increases the performance and life expectancy of shafts and bearings, and reduces the risk of catastrophic equipment failure. Well-balanced components allow rotating equipment run much quieter, extends maintenance intervals, and reduces downtime due to repairs.

Whether your project involves thousands of parts or a single critical piece, we diagnose and correct balancing issues efficiently and effectively. We perform welding, drilling, grinding, milling and more to address problems with weight to achieve required balancing tolerances. Our in house machining capabilities also allow us to handle any specialized tooling needs quickly and efficiently.

Examples of parts we have balanced include gas and steam turbines, generator rotors, compressors, pumps, fans, gearbox components, couplings, and drive shafts, and many more. As an FAA licensed repair station, we have the credentials to service aircraft-related components and equipment. All of our calibrations are traceable to N.I.S.T.

As leaders in the field of precision balancing since 1947, we offer fast turnaround times and competitive pricing for our shop and field services. We also provide 24-hour emergency service to minimize issues with downtime. Contact us today to learn more about our balancing capabilities.
