Wheel Balancers

The OPTIMA wheel balancer utilizes 3 laser measurement units with CCD cameras that are integrated into the balancer. Since the surface of the rims in the market does vary from dark, dirty, black to shining chrome with a laser device only there would be problems in scanning several wheels.

Product Description

Tyre Service Equipment – Wheel Balancers

OPTIMA

The OPTIMA wheel balancer utilizes 3 laser measurement units with CCD cameras that are integrated into the balancer. Since the surface of the rims in the market does vary from dark, dirty, black to shining chrome with a laser device only there would be problems in scanning several wheels. Combining the laser technology with CCD technology known from the aligners does solve this issue. The scanner components of the OPTIMA wheel balancer perform a variety of geometric measurements of the complete wheel assembly, the rim and the tire during shaft rotation. These measurements are interpreted by the wheel balancer’s on-board embedded PC to provide the features described in the previous slides and perform geometric matching to improve the wheel running conditions.

Features

Electro-mechanical clamping device “power clamp” makes clamping of the wheel easy for the operator and always accurate for the measurement. The balancer “knows” if a wheel has been clamped and if it has been clamped properly since the clamping procedure is monitored by the internal processor. With the electro-mechanical design there is no need for an air supply at the OPTIMA wheel balancer and issues like air leaking gaskets etc. will never occur. Clamping errors are an issue of the past with the power clamp system.

Automatic wheel weight placement selection including the appropriate ALU mode makes the operation of the OPTIMA wheel balancer very simply. Out of this the operator does not need to take care
– what kind of wheel he balances 
– what wheel weight placement mode is to be used (clip – clip / ALU)
2m

Non touch 3 D Imaging wheel profiling capability and automatic wheel weight placement mode selection (clip – clip / ALU) reduce possible mistakes done by the operator when wheel data are entered.
2n

Non touch rim run out capability is very accurate and ensures that the real run out is measured. Measurement of run out with a laser device is the technology used by the tire manufacturers in the industrial applications. Since radial and lateral run out is measured also a wheel mounting error on the balancer can easily be detected.
2o

Automatic split weight mode capability including spoke count and detection of spoke location makes the feature SPOKE an “easy to operate” feature for the operator. In the past the operator had to understand how to operate the SPOKE feature (enter the number of spokes and place a spoke on the 12 o´clock position to activate the spoke feature), now he simply pushes the F4 button to activate the split mode. The value for both stick on weights on the left side will be displayed immediately. Selling spoke placement as a service generates additional profit for the shop.
2p

Thread depth indication TDI The TDI function gives an information to the user if the tread depth is OK, CRITICAL or BAD. The feature is realized in a way that it gives an indication only (in fact it measures the center of the tread and can detect regular wear only) and NOT a real value thus not requiring any additional cycle time. 
2q

Rim measurement (available from software 2.9) If a rim is clamped on geodyna optima and measurement started, the machine will recognise that it is a rim only and no tyre / wheel assembly and measure automatically radial run-out of both bead seats as well as lateral run-out of the rim. The test results are viewed on the screen and can be output on the printer. Two lines were added to the optima parameter screen. 
2r

Laser pointer feature to attach adhesive wheel weights on alloy rims makes mechanical gauge arm completely obsolete. The operator sees where to place the weight in the 5 o´clock position and does not have to watch the screen or listen to an audible signal while attaching the stick on weights.

Geodyna 980L

Geodyna 980L adds to tire tread life with its 2-Plane/Dynamic, off-the-vehicle balancing of truck tires. A pneumatic wheel lift is standard on the geodyna 980L, so heavy lifting is eliminated and proper wheel mounting is guaranteed. Users are assured accuracy with semi-automatic entries of wheel distance and diameter, along with easy re-calibration that saves on costly service calls. The geodyna 980L comes standard with mounting adapters for both hub-piloted and stud-piloted truck wheels. As a bonus, the geodyna 980L also comes with a passenger/light truck centering cone kit for automotive use.
