Moment Weighing

Moment Weighing

SimuTech provides a moment weighing service for finite element model validation and for quality assurance. Moment weighing is a technique for locating an object's center of gravity.

A common application for moment weighing is optimization of turbine blade loading sequence (stacking order). Blade weight and the center of gravity location are measured and analyzed with a proprietary software package to determine the blade stacking position (loading chart) that minimizes unbalance.

SimuTech has moment weighed turbine blades ranging in length from 1 to 60 inches.
