Dynamic balancing becomes necessary for a wide range of commercial and industrial equipment for the obvious reason that virtually all rotors eventually become unbalanced from a variety of conditions. For example, some operational causes of unbalance include rotor fouling from accumulated dirt or other deposits on the rotor, bowing of rotors due to uneven heating or shaft damage, loss of rotor material from friction, and other causes.
Rotor unbalance is the uneven distribution of mass around an axis of rotation. A rotating mass, or rotor, is said to be out of balance when its center of mass (inertia axis) is out of alignment with the center of rotation (geometric axis). Unbalance forces the rotating axis to orbit off center. This is the most common cause of vibration in rotating systems.
