Pasio 5

Universal balancing machine for rotors up to 5 kg

Pasio 5 - Universal balancing machine for rotors up to 5 kg
  • Compact design
  • Small space requirement
  • Fast and uncomplicated set up
  • Installation without foundations
  • Highest measuring accuracy
  • Ergonomic operator concept
  • Quick change-over from workpiece to the next
  • Suitable for magnetized rotors

Special features

  • Space-saving single-unit design with integral measuring station and measuring unit
  • Easy to operate through permanent calibration – requires no calibration runs
  • Correction in two planes or separate according to static and couple unbalance is possible
  • Rotors can be mounted on their original shafts or on mounting arbors, complete assemblies can be installed in their housing
  • Automatic measuring cycle with infinitely variable settings for acceleration, measuring and braking time.

Range of application

Universal balancing machine Pasio 5 is ideally suited to extremely small work-pieces such as miniature armatures, miniature fans and complete assemblies. They are conceived for use in research and development, in batch production or in repair shops.

Change-over to new rotor types is straightforward and only requires a minimum of time.

Unbalance correction is made manually by addition of material (e.g. balancing plasticine) directly on the machine or by removal of material on optional manually operated or semi-automated machining units.


  • Hard-bearing, horizontal balancing machine with permanent calibration for standing or seated operator
  • The complete workplace consists of the following major components: machine table, mechanical balancing unit comprising roller bearings or V-blocks, belt drive, measuring instrument and control system
  • The machine can be installed without foundations and without bolts and is immediately ready for operation
  • Measuring CAB 820 (basic measuring unit)
  • Optional: Measuring device CAB 920 - the high end solution regarding operation, versatility and accuracy
