Core and Rotor Balancer CMT-48 VSR Basic
Thanks to our experience in manufacturing of balancing machines and flow benches and constant cooperation with turbocharger repair shops and OEMs like BorgWarner and Garrett, CIMAT developed a machine CMT-48 VSR Basic, which has become a must-have machine in turbocharger industry.
The machine CMT-48 VSR Basic has two balancing set-ups in one housing. The unit on the left side is used for high speed balancing of turbocharger core assemblies (CHRA) and the one on the right side is used for balancing rotors and compressor wheels. This machine is perfect for small and medium size turbocharger repair workshops as well as for R&D departments of manufacturing companies.
Top balancing accuracy
The use of of polymer technology in the machine housing ensures that external vibrations are dampened.
Hard bearing calibration (ABC)
The use of polymer technology in the machine housing also allows using hard bearing calibration, which means that operator has to fill out only geometrical parameters of a rotor to be able to start balancing process.
Quick and easy rotor dimensioning
Correction planes are indicated with a linear laser. This reduces errors made by the machine operator while using a caliper to measure a distance between correction planes.
Automatic rotor positioning
Thanks to servo motor it is possible to automatically position a rotor for a mass correction. As a result, machine operation is easier, faster, and more operator-friendly.
CIMAT has developed an energy-saving adapter system for our VSR machines, built in a plate and sleeve configuration—the plate fixes a core assembly (CHRA) to the machine and a sleeve drives a rotor with compressed air. CIMAT’s innovative solution provides an energy savings, which wind up translating to cost savings. With CIMAT’s innovative adapter system, 10 plates and 10 sleeves are equal to 100 traditional adapter configurations. Additionally, every plate and every sleeve is universal and fits up to a dozen bearing housings and turbo wheels—meaning fewer adapters will work with more assemblies. This innovative solution allows your company to save time and money.
