Piercing/Punching Correction

This method of balancing customer-specific parts utilizes a metal removal process known as piercing or punching. This involves using specialized tooling to remove small sections of material from the part surface at pre-calculated vectors to achieve specified balance. Piercing or punching can be accomplished in either a horizontal or vertical attitude, employing any number of tooling shapes and sizes to extract material from a given part. Typical parts utilizing this correction process include thinner metal components such as flywheels, hubs or housings.
