Minimize noise vibration
Unbalance is the major source of machine vibration and noise
Reduce structural stress
The forces produced by unbalance have to be absorbed the surrounding structure.
Minimize operator fatigue and annoyance.
Exposure to vibration affects operator efficiency
Increase machine life
The time between outages can be extended if the machine is running smoothly
Increase bearing life
Bearings bear the brunt of unbalance forces
Increase product quality
Minimizing vibration, especially on machine tools, produces better parts.
Increase personnel safety
Dangers with machine failure are minimized
Lower operating costs
Energy consumption is reduced and increase machine availability.
