Precision Balancing were recently represented by company director Chris Morse at the Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA) Vibration and Balancing Training Seminar at the St Kilda Road Parkview Hotel in Melbourne. The technical seminar was presented by Gene Vogel who is the Pump and Vibration Specialist for EASA USA.
Gene covered a range of topics from the basics of single and two plane balancing to the difficulties of flexible rotors and dealing with resonance in rotating objects. Gene’s wealth of knowledge and practical experience was greatly appreciated by those attending the two day seminar.
Gene travels extensively delivering technical papers on vibration and industrial balancing. This was Gene’s first trip to Australia and he was impressed by the commitment and hospitality of the Australasian Chapter of EASA. Before joining EASA, Gene operated his own business in the field of industrial maintenance training. He has an extensive background in vibration and dynamic balancing and chaired the St Louis Chapter of the Vibration Institute from 1993-2000.
The Australasian Chapter of EASA is an active group whose members, from all over the country, are involved in the supply, repair and servicing of principally electric motors but also pumps and other electrical apparatus.
