Measuring Instrumentation for Balancing Machines

Unmatched precision with a friendly face... Hofmann designs measuring instrumentation for the user.

Powerful core software with application-specific features address your unique balancing needs, including automated graphics and multiple-language options.

PC-Based Operator Interface: Power Through Simplicity

Hofmann´s pc-based instrumentation with dynamic proprietary software works with all balancing machines:  horizontal or vertical, rotating or non-rotating, simple or complex. It applies the familiar Microsoft® Windows®-based interface that runs on either a standard industrial-grade pc or a standard desktop pc for use in less-harsh environments. Both include a touchscreen option.

As the system’s operator station, the computer displays unbalance results as easy-to-read polar graphs and supporting digital readouts. Standard drop-down menus with straightforward option windows help simplify setup and maintenance.

Enclosures for Hofmann industrial-grade instrumentation meet NEMA 12 and IP65 class requirements.

HMI for Industrial Automation

Hofmann machines for automated production lines provide an HMI (Human-Machine Interface) with intelligent functionality and the ability to precisely control complex measuring, correction, and motion functions.

The "face" of these power applications is a user-friendly operator interface for both setup and operation. Our HMI uses the Microsoft Windows operating system on a high-quality, flat-screen industrial computer with touchscreen operation.

During the balancing process, the monitor displays amount and angle of unbalance, speed and rotational direction, tolerance indication, and both numerical and polar-graphic representation of unbalance. The display can be customized for the operation.

For machine automation control, the HMI communicates with the PLC (programmable logic controller) through proprietary Hofmann software. Simple screen design and configurable buttons streamline the setup and fine-tuning of machine control functions.
