Integrated Mill Head Automatically Balancing Corrects Unbalance

Shanghai Jianping Dynamic Balancing Machine Manufacturing Co., Ltd: International provider of innovative solutions, Jp Balancing introduces its A1LX20 Automatic Vertical Balancing Correction Machines with automatic mill correction. Offering high accuracy and repeatability, it is capable of handling any component weighing up to 35kg that requires correction of unbalance by milling.


Self-contained, the  A1LX20 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 and streamlined operation.


An outstanding feature of this versatile balancing machine is the very high unbalance reduction ratio it provides - 99.65% - probably the highest currently available on a vertical balancing machine.


The milling head which gives 300 Nm 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. In addition, 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. High suction extraction vacuum removes virtually all metal chips produced by the mill cutting process.


Further underlining the system's speed and flexibility, the jaws can be changed in less than 2 minutes and milling cutter in less than 1 minute. The mill head position adjusts in a matter of seconds at the touch of a button, due to the use of servo motors.


The A1LX20 is being used within a broad 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.


Measuring system

The touchscreen operated measuring system for the A1LX20 features simple intuitive displays available in imperial, metric and multiple unit options (ie gmm, gcm, 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, allowing fast retrieval when required. Results can be logged to a file, SQL database, printer, network or serial port in an easy to edit format, while advanced diagnostics allow fault analysis to be carried out both on site and remotely through the internet. Furthermore, four-level password protection locks down functions within a module or for whole pages.
