Understanding and Applying Balance and Vibration Theory

Balancing is becoming more and more critical in the manufacturing of rotating machinery. Ever-increasing operating speeds, lighter weights, and the drive for increased quality and customer satisfaction have all contributed to the need for better vibration and noise reduction, and therefore tighter balancing tolerances.


Many manufacturers find their balancing methods and processes outdated, resulting in balancing becoming the bottleneck of the process. In addition, in many cases, balancing tolerances have not been updated in years, resulting in vibration levels not consistent with today's demanding global market.

This balance and vibration theory course will provide a theoretical and practical framework that will allow attendees to identify and correct any balancing problem. If you have vibration problems caused by unbalance, or a costly, inefficient balancing process, or just want to learn more about balancing, the course from VibraSys is right for you.

Course Outline:

• Fundamentals of Balancing and Vibration
• Relationship Between Vibration and Unbalance
• Sources of Unbalance
• Methods of Unbalance Compensation

• Overview of Balancing Machine Characteristics
• Criteria for Selecting a Balancing Machine
• Determining the Proper Balance
• Methods of Testing a Balancing Machine

"Steve Reimann has been one of the most effective presenters at our (EMCW) Conferences. His knowledge and unique presentation style make his seminars a valuable learning experience."

Charles T., Executive Director
Electrical Manufacturing and Coil Winding Association

"The school was successful in demystifying the purpose and techniques of balancing our small, high-speed fans. Steve Reimann's presentation was thorough in concepts and practice in a manner that was usable for the varied level of employees in attendance."

William D., Senior Project Engineer

Benefits of the Course:

• Save Tens of Thousands of Dollars in Capital and Operating Costs by Balancing to the Proper Balancing Tolerance
• Increase Throughput by Optimizing the Unbalance Compensation Process
• Avoid Unnecessary Costs by Selecting Only the Balancing Machine Features You Need

• Reduce Manufacturing Costs by Designing for Manufacturers and Manufacturing for Better Balance
• Improve Operator Efficiency and Motivation Through a Better Understanding of the Process

Why Should I Attend?

The course is available in one- and two-day versions. The one-day version is an intense discussion of balancing theory and its application to design and manufacturing issues. The two-day version spends more time on specific applications and problems the attendees may be experiencing.

Who Should Attend?

The course has been developed for design and manufacturing engineers, quality control personnel, production supervisors, and maintenance specialists. In addition, special sections and formats are available to include balancing operators and other production employees.

"The VibraSys seminar brought together our design and manufacturing personnel and gave them a common understanding of balancing issues. As a direct result of the seminar, we modified our approach to tolerancing, which allowed us to streamline our balancing process, dramatically reducing costs."

Frank B., Senior Manufacturing Engineer

About the Instructor

The seminar leader, Steve Reimann, has been active in the balancing industry since 1977. During that time, he has amassed a wealth of experience and knowledge in balancing and vibration analysis. His education includes a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering and a Masters of Business Administration. He has published over a half-dozen articles and presented numerous technical papers at industry conferences on balancing theory and applications. Steve is president of VibraSys which, among other things, represents CEMB balancing machines and vibration instruments. VibraSys also offers consulting services in those fields. Steve is a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the EG-1A Aerospace Balancing Committee.



We provide full consulting services on all aspects of balancing, including proper tolerancing, process development, compliance with international standards (ISO, SAE, API, ANSI, etc.), and workforce training.
