The Simple Balancing Unit "MES" developed by EDIBON is an unit to study and analyze the oscillations and vibrations and how to eliminate or diminish them.
This unit is sustained by anodized aluminum profiles on which are mounted steel panels. This gives to the unit stability and lightness.
The MES unit is basically formed by a shaft mounted on bearings. This shaft is coupled by pulley to an electrical motor with variable speed that will make it turn. The whole is fixed to the support structure by means of springs which make the unit oscillate in case there are vibrations or forces without being balanced.
This shaft has 2 discs coupled: one of them is the pulley, and the other is a graduated disc. The disc have drills to proceed, through fixing the masses, to the system destabilization and then to its subsequent balancing.
A ruler can be used in the MES Unit to see easily the measurement of the system displacement with a needle placed at the right side of the unit.
The unit is supplied with an Auxiliary Module for the electrical supply and the motor speed control.
The unit is completed with a set of sector masses and weights of different values for doing the experiments.
- Demonstrations and experiments in the balancing of coplanar rotating systems.
- Balance in a single plane of revolution.
- Observe the effects on oscillations of various conditions of balance.
