Electronics Upgrades Examples

Dave Shows at Dr. Driveshaft in Houston has a very old Axiline Balancer.  Tim stopped in and asked Dave if it would be beneficial to him to be able to balance faster and with more accuracy.  The answer was yes, so he had Tim upgrade his machine.  Took a bit of trial and error to retrofit Dave’s machine, which has a 20,000 pound press for assembling driveshafts, but now he balances faster than ever!

Taylor Lastor at TRE in Cleveland had a fire in his shop that destroyed the electronics on his Hines machine.  Miraculously, the drive motor still worked, so we were able to install a speed controller and new T&S electronics and got him back up and running.

Mike Lewis in Willets, California upgraded this 15 year old machine with new electronics. Now it is a fully functional machine equipped with the latest electronic technology!

American Coolaire uses a special design single-column machine in production to balance large fans for chicken houses and other industrial uses. T&S had to design a non-contact photo-eye system special application electronic system for this machine. This was a complicated project but now is a 6-second spin machine!

Wayne Calvert picked up his new machine in Colorado Springs in 1955. This was the first Stewart Warner balancer in the North Texas area. It took 15 minutes to install the new electronics and 30 minutes to get Wayne’s son Randy familiar with the software.

The electronics on this machine were repaired and a photo-eye system installed for Jack Schoeller.

Leon Rutt bought his Pro-Bal PB1000 machine new in 1989. He has balanced many diesel cranks on this machine. The original electronics would not handle this 1,800 lb 8-foot 3516 Cat Diesel crank on his 5-foot long 1000 lb capacity hard bearing machine. The new electronics solved this problem.

This refurbished PB1000 Pro-Bal was outfitted with T&S electronics and purchased by Green County Machine in Wisconsin.
