In addition to balancing machines, Hines Industries manufactures computer controlled, straightening machines. A straightening machine can be used to automatically straighten your rotors to fine tolerances. Hines machines straighten: axles, gears, shafts, spindles, tooling, tubing, and turbines.
Straighteners can test for runout in one to five or more locations. Total Indicated Runout (TIR) can be measured by contact or non contact sensors on smooth to irregular or splined surfaces. Hines straighteners are known for their accuracy, repeatability, speed, and small floor space requirement. Runout (TIR) gaging may be added to any of our balancing machines as well.
