A rotating mass component with high balancing quality is provided. The balancing is performed in a substantially automated manner and without chip formation. A method for balancing a rotating mass component, such as a rotor is achieved by deposition welding of welding points on the mass component. The mass symmetry respective to the rotation axis is improved. The deposition welding takes place through cold metal transfer welding, in particular of a plurality of individual mass points.
