PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The diagnostic wheel balancer for high-end tyre shops, car dealerships and garages , tuning shops and car manufacturers. With 3D camera technology: 5 CCD cameras scan tyre and rim from different directions with special 3D laser stripes. In a single measuring run all data is detected and possible defects in tyre or rim are diagnosed and documented with utmost accuracy.

  • Measurement of tyre pull effect (tyre conicity)

  • Allocation of wheels to their best possible position on the vehicle in order to avoid tyre pull effect (OptiLine function - optional)

  • Detection of flat spots on the tyre

  • Detection of possible damage to tyre sidewall

  • Checking of bead seat

  • Measurement of radial and lateral run-out of tyre and/or rim

  • Tread depth measurement in 5 different positions and visualisation on screen

  • Tread wear analysis (signalling need for wheel alignment)

  • User-friendly touch screen monitor for visualisation of the diagnostic results in brilliant 3D colour maps

  • Graphical user interface PLATINUM for intuitive user-machine communication and high-productivity diagnostic wheel balancing

  • Print-out of all results in test records, or screenshots via optional printer. Output also to USB memory stick.

  • Documentation of the condition of a set of wheels

  • Patented virtual plane measurement (VPM) technique

  • Automatic non-contact acquisition of wheel data and balancing mode (weight type and position)

  • Automatic non-contact identification of number and position of spokes for split-weight mode

  • Relocation of weight position via geodata® gauge arm with AutoStopSystem and patented adhesive wheel weight clamp

  • Diagnostics of unsmooth ride and optimisation in a single additional step

  • Electro-mechanical Power Clamp device for accurate clamping and centring of the wheel

  • asanetwork capability via optional software client

3D imaging diagnostics

feat-3dimagingdiagnostics

The type, size and position of a defect in the tyre are identified, measured and visualised by non-contact 3D imaging technology.

easyWEIGHT™

feat-easyweight

Pinpoint laser identifies exact weight placement location for increased accuracy and efficiency.

Match-mounting

feat-matchmounting

Radial run-out diagnosis of the wheel is performed during unbalance measurement, hence without compromising on productivity. High run-out is automatically detected during rim diagnosis, providing match-mounting.

Oversize shaft

feat-oversizeshaft

The 225 mm length allows the use of stud-hole flanges and other accessories for almost every type of rim.

PLATINUM user interface

feat-platinumuserinterface

Highly intuitive and fast touch-screen monitor with large digits, coloured weight position indicators and PLATINUM user interface – improved intuitiveness and ergonomics.

Radial run-out

feat-radialrunout

Peak-to-peak and 1st harmonic graphs of wheel run-out are provided for an easy diagnostic of the issues. Rim run-out and matching information are provided when necessary.

Rim scanner

feat-rimscanner

The rim scanner automatically detects rim diameter and offset as well as the number and position of rim spokes. Then it automatically chooses balancing mode, weight types and weight positions.

Split weight mode

feat-splitweightmode

Hides adhesive weights behind two adjacent spokes so they cannot be seen from the outside.

Wheel guard

feat-wheelguard

The patented and ergonomic telescopic wheel guard reduces the footprint.

easyALU™

feat-easyalu

Touch the rim with the gauge arm to enter the rim dimensions and automatically select the weight balancing mode.

Power Clamp™

feat-power-clamp

Patented automatic Power Clamp™ electromechanical clamps the wheel accurately with a constant force, reducing the opportunity for chasing weight.

QuickBAL™

feat-quickbal

30% reduced cycle time, less than 4,5 seconds, maintaining the same high accuracy.

VPM technique

feat-vpm-technique

Measurement system for high precision and repeatability.
