A guide for mechanical engineers to balancing machinery in order to reduce production loss, maintenance costs, and downtime due to machinery failure. Some of the methods described require either inexpensive instruments or none at all; they include single-plane and two-plane balancing, the four-run method with phase, the static-couple method, flexible rotor balancing, and balancing nonrotating parts.

If you're responsible for the production, installation, or maintenance of equipment, this practical, how-to guide offers proven methods for balancing machinery in order to reduce production loss, maintenance costs, and expensive downtime due to machinery failure. From the fundamentals of balancing to the latest advanced techniques, the book explains the full range of mass balancing methods in use today, including balancing with no instruments...single-plane balancing...the four-run method without phase...two-plane balancing...the static-couple method...flexible rotor balancing...and balancing nonrotating parts. Machinery Vibration: Balancing shows you how to implement simple methods to mass balance without expensive instruments, and explores such topics as the vestor mathematics of balancing, mass centering, index balancing, and designs for balance weights. Featuring hundreds of illustrations, real-world case studies, and worked-out problems, this essential on-the-job reference will give you the information and know-how required to solve any balancing problem on any piece of equipment.About the Author:
