Comparison of One-Unit Ball-Rod-Spring Balancer with Traditional Ball-Type Automatic Balancer

Abstract:

Article Preview

Ball-type automatic balancers have been applied successfully to suppress unbalance vibrations of a rotor. A traditional ball-type automatic balancer consists of several balls moving along a fixed circular orbit. A new type of balancer, the ball-rod-spring balancer, in which the ball may move in the radial direction as well as in circumferential direction, has been proposed. This study aims to compare the performance of the new type of balancer with the traditional ball-type auto-balancer.
