Balancing of Drive Shafts

With our balancing machine we can balance and optimize Drive Shafts up to a length of 10 mtr. and a flange diameter of 550 mm.

The balancing process of the cardan shaft is always carried out according to the requirements of DIN ISO 1940 with the corresponding balancing grades G16 (cardan shafts for trucks and locomotives) and G6.3 (cardan shafts for passenger cars, paper machines, fans, impellers, ship drives, turbine wheels for aircraft drives, printing machines & centrifuges).

Drive Shaft shorten shortening and lengthening

We carry out length changes of cardan shafts of all types. After we have either lengthened or shortened the cardan shaft according to customer specifications, it is balanced on our balancing machine in accordance with the standards.

In doing so, we additionally support our customers in the technical design as well as in the determination of the relevant parameters.
