The Acuro Plus is a complete system consisting of a toolholder and a tool can be balanced in one plane or, for particularly long systems, in two planes. An adapter system with automatic clamping provides the same pulling forces as an actual machine spindle. Via a menu-driven system, the basic data input is complete.

The Acuro Plus is a complete system consisting of a toolholder and a tool can be balanced in one plane or, for particularly long systems, in two planes. An adapter system with automatic clamping provides the same pulling forces as an actual machine spindle. Via a menu-driven system, the basic data input is complete.

At the end of a measuring operation, the actual position of the unbalance is shown on the operating screen. The unbalance can be shown directly on the tool by a red laser light. To compensate the determined unbalance, the operator has two options. He can remove the material by drilling or milling. For this option, the best position for material removal is calculated by a software algorithm calculating the position of the balancing bore (size of the bore diameter and depth). The other option uses balance rings or balancing weights/screws. During this operation, the operator receives the exact positioning or screw-in depths.

The balancing machine requires a conventional 110-V power connection and 87-psi compressed air.
