Traditional balancing methods such as stroboscopic balancing, balancing scales, and balancing stands are time-consuming and require specialist knowledge. When balancing outside the grinding machine, residual unbalance in the spindle bearing and clamping errors are also not dealt with. Due to the reduction of the grinding wheel diameter during processing, the unbalance changes continuously, which is why it needs to be measured permanently and rebalanced if necessary.
ACCRETECH SBS UK, Ltd. has been developing solutions to increase the accuracy and efficiency of the grinding process for over 25 years in collaboration with grinding machine manufacturers, retrofitters and end users.
SBS balancing technology ensures a smooth run
The fully automatic SBS balancing system is integrated in the grinding machine as an in-process control. It permanently monitors the unbalance and signals any necessary rebalancing to the machine control. The balancing process is started by the machine or by pressing a button and is carried out fully automatically.
ACCRETECH SBS offers various built-in (Internal) balancing heads to facilitate integration in the spindle nose: with signal transmission, power and control commands at the front or the rear of the spindle. Add-on (External) balancing heads are also available and can be assembled on the grinding wheel flange or spindle nut. The automatic External balancing heads come with either slip ring based contact type or contactless signal transmission.
