VSR™

Turbo Technics

Vibration Sorting Rig

The TT VSR™ was first launched in the UK in 1984 in response to the problem of vibration occurring at high speed in turbochargers fitted to passenger cars. The VSR™ was designed to measure vibration within the complete rotating assembly at speeds similar to the level seen in the vehicle.

Core balancing is the method specified by turbo manufacturers to ensure that a turbocharger meets quality standards. The Turbo Technics VSR™ balancing machine offers a 100% quality control system which both measures and corrects turbocharger vibration throughout the entire speed range, which may extend to 300,000 rpm depending on the model. This ensures quiet turbocharger operation and a long service life.

Following many years in production, the Turbo Technics VSR™ still remains the most advanced and universally chosen turbocharger core balancing machine available. A programme of continuous development builds on this winning formula and maintains a competitive advantage over rival machines. Greater computer processing speed, faster cycle times and network integration are just a few recent improvements.

A range of TT VSR™ machines are produced, with models suitable for small workshops, medium to large remanufacturers and OEM producers.

The extensive range of adapters and accessories cover virtually all turbo core types, including reverse rotation.

A number of Turbo Technics VSR™ in OEM use have balanced in excess of 1 million turbos each and are still in operation today.​
