Expert Fan and Shaft Service and Repair
Niagara Frontier Custom Fabrication is proud to announce we have assumed the balancing services previously provided by ACT Associates as they closed their doors after 60 years in business.
Niagara Frontier’s core business is custom metal fabrication in our 35,000 square foot facility located in Buffalo, New York and industrial services for clients in Western and Central New York. We have been associated with ACT as both a customer and vendor and are proud to carry on their reputation for quality service. We have set up fixed-shop balancing test stands and have retained the services of Jim Farnham and Adam Kerr, formerly balancing technicians with ACT Associates.
Please be assured you will receive the same high level of service from NFCF as you received from ACT Associates. We look forward to earning your business and confidence.
Our experience working in industrial, commercial and institutional facilities can help you prevent maintenance problems as well as handle emergencies that may arise.
Dynamic Balancing is the ability to balance while in motion or when switching positions, using a balancing machine with two sets of bearings connected to sensors.
Static Balancing is the ability of a stationary object to balance. The fan unit is placed on low-friction bearings so that it rotates gently and settles, thus identifying the heaviest point. Excess material is removed and the process is repeated until there is no longer an obvious heavy point. A non-rotating spindle tool can also be used to identify downward deflection and location of imbalance.
