With an easy-to-use touch screen, the new Hofmann geodyna 9000P Wheel Balancer features advanced non-contact 3D imaging technology that is virtually user error-proof for expert balancing every time, the company says.

“The innovative non-contact 3D imaging technology on the new Hofmann 9000P scans the rim and tire profile to measure radial tire run-out, bead seat run-out on the bare rim and radial and lateral rim run-out on both sides,” said Adam Brown, product manager for Hofmann. “In addition, the wheel is also scanned to within 0.1 millimeter accuracy to examine all externally visible scratches, cuts, bulges, blisters, flat spots and uneven wear-out that could potentially lead to safety issues. Simple to use, all a service technician needs to do is clamp the wheel, close the guard and let the geodyna 9000P do the rest.”

For use on all types of cars and light trucks, the versatile, durable Hofmann geodyna 9000P Wheel Balancer features:

Automatic Acquisition – Provides automatic and non-contact detection of wheel dimensions, balancing mode, number and position of spokes, amount and position of weights, lateral and radial run-out of tire and rim, match mounting and geometric issues.

3D Imaging – Five high-resolution laser cameras scan the complete rim and tire profile to provide visual evidence of results, which increases customer awareness and satisfaction.

Run-Out Force Vectoring (RFV) – Determines the virtual loaded run-out contact patch of the wheel assembly and calculates the spring rate by measuring tread width, sidewall height, surface singularities and estimated tire pressure.
