Nibbling/Notching Correction

This method of balancing customer-specific parts utilizes a metal removal process known as nibbling or notching. This involves using specialized tooling to shear small sections of material from the part edge surface at calculated vectors to achieve specified balance. Normally accomplished in a horizontal attitude, nibbling/notching removes metal from the outside diameter of any given rotor in any number of heights, widths or depths. Typical parts utilizing this correction process include various transmission components such as hubs or housings.
