Balance Systems has a forty-years competence in the design and development of balancing machines and auxiliary systems for adjustments of the automatic balancing functions of wheels, of dimensional analysis pre/in/post - process, wheel-piece contact control and piece-wheel contact control, and systems for optimizing the processing of adjustments; during this long period of activity it has represented a technological and performance reference of the sector; the products developed are:
• High-performance balancing machines for electric motors, rotor of alternator, brushless rotors, fans, electric fans, brake disk, drums, clutches, turbines, flywheels, shafts, pumps, wheels, pulleys, propellers, couplings, spindles
• Customized balancing machines.
• Automatic balancing equipment for grinding wheels able to remove the vibrations generated by the imbalances due to the non-homogeneous distribution of the rotating, with the aim to increase the duration of the components, the quality, the machining precisions of the finished piece, reducing waste and consumption.
• Wheel-piece contact control system based on AE sensors (Acoustic Emission) able to provide information to perform machine reset, grinding wheel-piece contact control, tool sharpening control (controllo affilatura utensili), control and optimization of the manufacturing process. All of this has the aim to reduce processing times, reduce tools wear and prevent crash events.
• Measurement systems for in-process dimensional control (during the working process) and post-process (at the end of the working process) of the workpiece, in order to guarantee a constant precision, restricted tolerances and the geometric control of the surface of the worked piece.
Balance Systems is constantly seeking innovative and technologically advanced solutions for the continuous improvement of its products and for the development of new products in order to consolidate and expand its markets. Develop tomorrow’s technology, always exceeding expectations, allowed the Company to offer always unique solutions at low costs and at highly flexibility in order to satisfy any customer need. Our mission is to create and maintain high quality, design unique solutions able to reduce production costs and time, always paying particular attention to the needs of our customers, and passion is the energy at the base of all our efforts.
Balance Systems in present today with own commercial and technical service branches in USA, Germany, France, China (sales agency and service technicians), all the other developing areas in the world are covered by agents. Over 70% of the production is intended for the foreign market.

BUSINESS MODEL AND SOURCE OF PROFITS
Balance Systems is active above all in the automotive sector and exports in all the world. Balance Systems works in a niche market, but our competitors are giants compared to our Company in terms of resources; therefore Balance has always tried to develop highly technological and flexible products in order to always offer cutting-edge solutions to meet the different needs of our customers and firmly position the Company into the reference market.
The most important competitors at the global level are distributed in Europe, Usa and Asia.
Compared to competitors, the position of the Company remains competitive through technologic advantages, a traditional flexibility and orientation to the specific needs of the customer. On the cost and price side, the benefit of American and Japanese competitors is accentuated year after year and now also Chinese competitors are entering the market. The major strength of the Company manifests itself in front of special projects where it is able to provide customized and studied solutions compared to customer needs. Unfortunately it is quite known that developing and producing customized technical solutions even if professionally rewarding, the results can often not be satisfying.

Short description of the aspects of innovation that characterize the business enterprise
Balance Systems is characterized by two company’s core businesses: automatic, semi-automatic and manual balancing machines division aimed at developing machine tools for balancing electric motors, power tools, starter motors, brake discs, fans, etc., and systems division aimed at developing solutions for monitoring the production process of grinding machines.
The technological skills required to develop new products and to reach a competitive level of innovation play an essential role in our company as they allows us to properly meet the needs of market. Every day the company works to acquire, increase, develop multidisciplinary skills concerning microelectronics, sensors, firmware, software, wireless transmission, electromechanics, magnetism, mechanics and micromechanics, analysis of vibration, image analysis, etc.
Almost all of these competences are held by the company although we often collaborate with Italian and foreign universities, research institutes, specific specialized suppliers, some of which form the partnership of this project.
The industrial strategy that up to now has characterized corporate choices has always been focused on greater specialization in its area of expertise, projecting the company into a leading position in terms of technology, product performance, flexibility and utmost care to customer needs.
Aiming at a development objective while remaining within our highly specialized field means expanding the range of products so as to cover other industrial sectors and grow with a network of partners with whom ambitious projects can be set up, without losing focus on its core business (Make or Buy evolved).
Over the years the following skills have been acquired:
• balancing methods and techniques
• algorithms for balancing of flexible rotors, turbochargers, crankshafts, brake discs, transmission shafts, motorized fans
• workpiece processing methods
• pre-balancing and dynamic balancing algorithms for grinding wheels, on 1 and 2 floors
• in-process and post-process gauging systems
• digital signal processing (filters, FFT, ect)
• FEM analysis
• Machine Directive 2006-42-CE, FMEA and FMECA Methodology, Analysis of residual risks of complex systems
• EMC Directive 2004-108-CE (Radiated emission En 55022, Discharged immunity, burst, surge, induced RF, radiated electromagnetic fields EN 61000-4-2 / 3/4/5/6)
• Project management techniques
The constant activities of identification, definition and development of new products and technologies, involved not only the acquisition of the aforementioned skills, but also the creation of specialized laboratories and the acquisition of specific development tools and instrumentation for functional and electrical tests.
