This high-level, multi-instructor-led course is bringing participants a deep understanding of balancing methods and confidence with hands-on practice on test rotors. 

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • Conduct effective balancing of machine trains in the field: calculation of trials, evaluation of results, decision making.
  • Select strategy ensuring minimum disruption costs and proper data quality.
  • Use calculation tools the most applicable to situation, evaluate inputs and outputs and recalculate between balancing methods and data conventions.
  • Get a deep understanding of balancing process allowing effective supervision of solution weights installation and troubleshooting data integrity problems.

3 days

This course is designed for machinery diagnosticians, startup engineers and remote diagnostic center specialists.
Machinery Diagnostics (MD)
Although GE will not refuse persons who do not meet pre-requisites, the Advanced Field Balancing course will start where the Machinery Diagnostics course ends. Without the prerequisite, participants will not get full understanding and the expected return on investment.
