With the active balancing system AB 9000 from Hofmann, it is possible to optimize the production process, especially when milling and turning (MillTurn) asymmetrical parts.
In MillTurn processes, parts are changed asymmetrically by milling, i.e. they are no longer rotationally symmetrical. This leads to a strong centrifugal force load during a subsequent turning operation. Cutting parameters have to be changed and the speed has to be reduced in order to be able to maintain the product quality.
These process-related imbalances often have to be pre-balanced by adding counterweights. The size and position of these weights have to be calculated and attached manually, which leads to a significant extension of the manufacturing process time.
