Internal combustion engines use turbochargers as a way to output more power. Some turbocharger impellers can reach speeds up to 300,000 rpm.
Unbalance at high speed generates vibration that will not only reduce the engine performance, but may eventually cause permanent damage to the whole system. Needless to say, turbo balancing machines are important in maintenance activities for turbocharger systems to work in optimal conditions.

Balancing cost reduction and efficiency improvement targets is a common source of frustration for maintenance and engineering managers. For facilities that operate continuously with no window for unplanned shutdowns, poor reliability and availability of machinery is far more serious, but even in factories with regular opportunities for maintenance, recovery can still be expensive and time consuming.

We will discuss the building blocks of a good laser system and how you can untangle the gobbledygook of tech specs in order to make the best selection for your applications.Understanding how a laser system works (not just how to operate it), will make you a better aligner. We will explore and break down the most common methodologies.
