The CWT Multi-Bal 5500 balancer is up and running, and preserves all the best features of the Multi-Bal 5000 but adds both new software and hardware updates.
A new and improved user interface includes a more robust 23" wide-screen monitor with touch-screen controls as well as new software that helps to drive the technician toward a solution.
The new software also adds "CounterWeight Shaping" (CWS)- a feature that can assist a properly trained technician how to shave off material from "cam ground" style counterweights. The results of this new feature are "operator dependent" - meaning the technician is required to properly input the parameters of the work into the interface - but then the software can offer a solution for balancing through material shaving.
New mechanical / hardware features include a redesigned drill mounting system.
Heavy Metal Vector Forecasting (HMVF) remains standard on the Multi-Bal 5500 - a feature that assists the technician in not only achieving balance to tolerance from left to right on whatever work is being spun, but also allows any residual imbalance (any imbalance left beyond the set tolerance parameter) on the ends of the work to be placed 180 degrees out of phase so that cancellation of any residual excitatation may occur. Put another way, HMVF forecasting allows the technician to address not only where to add or remove weight to combat an imbalance, but it also allows the tech to address the position (or phasing) of that imbalance.
CWT is a brick and mortar business that features in house design, engineering, computer software development, and CNC machining, welding, painting, and shipping preparation for our products. We specialize in balancing.
Our capabilities mean that if you have an application that rotates which can benefit from balancing, we can most likely develop a product that can help you meet your goals.
