RoboticsBalancing Machines With Robotics

Hines has years of experience designing and manufacturing automated balancing machines with conveyors and multi-axis robotic equipment. With these features you can reduce your operating costs and part throughput time, and increase product quality.

wood chipper hcThe balancer is a single station, cradle balancing machine configured and tooled for balancing wood chippers. This machine is just one example of the many configurations and weight ranges available.

The right balancing machine for you depends on many variables related to your part attributes such as weight, production throughput requirements, and budget. Wood Chipper balancers are typicallys based on the Hines Cradle Balancing Machine (HC).

Balancing Equipment ToolingBalancing Equipment Tooling

The goal of balancing is to align the mass center (principal axis of inertia) with the geometric axis (centerline) which includes the center of gravity of the workpiece. To do this, the tooling must be accurate enough to hold the workpiece in precisely the same manner as the workpiece will be held in its final application. If the tooling fails to do this, then no matter how well balanced the workpiece is on the balancing machine, the workpiece may vibrate in its final application.

Hines Industries specializes in stock or custom tooling systems for precision balancing. Whether the balancer is an HC, HO, HVR, HVS, or Special, Hines provides the right tooling answer.

This includes:

  • Adapter Plates
  • Collets
  • Straight, Tapered, and Threaded Shafts
  • Air Activated Tooling Systems
  • Spring Activated Cone Systems
  • Weight Activated Expansion Types
  • as well as numerous "Specials" to do the job right!

Mass Centering Balancing Machine

The fully automated mass center wheel balancer shown below reduces unbalance by improving the initial phase of product manufacturing. This greatly reduces the amount of correction required during the final production phase. It includes a conveyor system, welding equipment, and other balancing equipment options.

Wheel balancers are based on the Hines Non-Rotating Balancing Machine.
