Airplane Propeller Balancing Machines

hvs airplane propellerThe Hines HVS-200 in the photo is a static or non-rotating balancing machine configured and tooled for balancing airplane propellers. This balancer reads the amount and angle of unbalance in 1 to 3 seconds. Balancers for propellers and tooling, weighing over 50 pounds (25 Kg) come with pneumatic or hydraulic lifts as standard to assist the operator in lifting and lowering heavy propellers safely. Because the HVS style balancing machine doesn’t need to rotate the part to determine the amount of unbalance it is both faster and safer than most other balancing machines. A static balancing machine reads accurately in seconds, some on-machine corrections can be made. Corrections are generally made by wiring on weights to meet FAA requirements. Heavier propellers will have a lift to carefully lower them on to the balancing equipment.

This machine is just one example of the many configurations and weight ranges available. Hines Industries also manufactures dynamic balancing machines. Dynamic balancers will display the amount of two plane unbalance. Two plane is the amount and angle required to correct for force and couple unbalance.

The right balancing machine for you depends on the size and mass of the propeller. Contact Hines to find out what machine and tooling is best for your propellers and process.
