The Static and Dynamic Balancing Unit is developed to study and analyze the oscillations and vibrations and how to eliminate or diminish them.
Desktop unit mounted on a structure made of anodized aluminum profiles, with a painted steel panel and with legs.
All the elements of the MED unit are made of aluminum, stainless steel and treated steel.
This unit has:
An electrical motor with variable speed which can reach 8,300 r.p.m.
It has a transmission through pulleys and a belt from the motor to the shaft.
2 Balancing discs. They are made of aluminum and have a diameter of 150 mm.
An aluminum external disc, that we will name Graduated disc. It has a diameter of 150 mm.
The unit is completed with a set of sector masses and weights to do the practices:
2 Sector masses of 27º angle.
2 Sector masses of 114º angle.
2 Sector masses of 43º angle.
2 Sector masses of 72º angle.
18 weights of 60 gr., 40 gr., 30 gr., 20 gr. and 15 gr., to do the balance of masses in rotation experiments.
Auxiliary module for the electrical supply and the motor control. At its back, there are connections and at its front part it has a potentiometer to control the speed of the motor.
Manuals: This unit is supplied with the following manuals: Required services, Assembly and Installation, Starting-up, Safety, Maintenance & Practices Manuals.

Some Practical Possibilities of the Unit:
1- Balance on an individual plane of revolution.
2- Balance on separated planes of revolution.
3- Easy demonstration experiments.
4- Illustrate the dynamic balance of rotation and reciprocating systems.
5- Balance of reciprocating masses.
6- Observe the effects on oscillations of various conditions of partial balance in the reciprocating systems.
