PRACTICAL METHODS OF ENGINE-BALANCING 1 240011

Remarking upon the progress made by the builders of machine-tools in providing equipment for locating and correcting the unbalance of rotating parts, the author divides into three major groups the units of a motor car that require particular attention and treatment to assure a smooth-running mechanism and gives details of the actual methods employed by the company he represents to balance the parts that constitute each group in the vehicles it produces.
Representatives of the engineering and the manufacturing departments of this company studied the subject intensively and determined the types of balancing-machine and the methods to be employed, and special balancing equipment was devised also. Details of the balancing practice for crankshafts, flywheels, connecting-rods, clutches and propeller-shafts are presented and the subjects of impulse balance and the maintenance of balance for assemblies of parts are discussed.
