The company that supplies balancing machines to the automotive industry find its application in crankshaft, brake disc, flywheel, turbochargers and tyre and wheel assembly. The wide range of applications are designed based on the experience, constant research and development and end-user feedback. S S Sharma, Senior Vice President – Sales & Service, Schenck Rotec India told Auto Components India that, “We would be able to deliver German technology machines at Indian cost because of the competitive manufacturing and labor cost prevailing in India.”

Balancing machines are vital for any body which rotates and especially in auto industry the applications of the same are obvious. The uneven distribution of the masses mainly cause unbalance and it causes centrifugal forces. These forces appear to act on a body moving in a circular path and the forces caused, direct the body away from the centre around which the body is moving. Because of these forces, vibrations and noises occur during rotation which eventually cause crackling sounds especially at high speeds. Because of these vibrations, bearings, suspensions and housings are subjected to high stress resulting in greater wear. This will affect the life of the components, revealed Sharma.

Not only these products, even the miniature components like screws and clamps will get more wear and tear. Switches, pipes and cables are affected by vibration and this in-turn tosses the life of the handlers. On top of that the noisy vehicles’ brands will get deteriorated and cannot fetch its space in the market. The quality of the products also gets degraded. These negative effects like disruptive vibrations, noises and imbalances could be overcome using balancing machines. “With over 100 years of experience we offer the right solution for every task and rendering tailored balancing solutions to customers. Having a technology centre in India, we would always put our hands in the technological move and ensure the same is matched with the German standards. We have a balancing machine from Germany which is set as benchmark and the calibrations are taken care accordingly mapping the outputs. We are vying with our fellow players and demonstrated that we deliver German technologies at Indian cost,” added Sharma.

The company always stick on to ISO standards and keep innovation as the formula for its solutions. Calibrations are parred with German standards.
