Research of the Static Balance for Spherical Rotor


Article Preview

For spherical rotor of gyroscope and some other high speed rotor, static balance is important. The paper introduces a static balance method for spherical rotor: the position of the spherical rotor is fixed by the use of the special clamp apparatus, and then determines the unbalance mass using the electronic balance. This method has no strict requirement to the clamp’s symmetry and dimension and locating precision of the locating hole. The balance precision only depends on the precision of the electronic balance and shape error of the clamp’s locating surface, which makes the balance method has high precision and preferable operability.
