VSR 500

The Turbo Technics VSR 500 (Vibration Sorting Rig) Series models are high-speed core balancing machines for measuring and correcting imbalance of larger turbocharger core assemblies, covering commercial vehicle and heavy industrial applications. The VSR 500 series is designed for high versatility and comprises a range of machines suitable for use from low-volume repair work to medium-volume production lines.

As larger commercial vehicle turbocharger pressures and speeds have increased, high speed balancing of the rotating assembly has become necessary to achieve reliability. This trend was recognised by Turbo Technics in the mid-2000’s and led to the development of the VSR Mk5 which has evolved into the current VSR 500 series.
