COATS ProRide Diagnostic Wheel Balancer

Hennessy Industries

April 2, 2012 - Products

Hennessy Industries’ new COATS ProRide Diagnostic wheel balancer, available in standard clamp locking and pneumatic locking (PL) models, is designed to make wheel diagnostics fast, easy, and accurate, according to the company.

The ProRide Series features touchless radial runout diagnostics and wheel weight location recognition. Accurate runout measurements help identify troublesome tires and wheels, and cycle times are fast enough to use on every assembly, Hennessy stated. Selecting the weight mode and starting the balance involves pulling the distance arm to the desired location and lowering the hood.

A positioning pedal keeps the assembly in place during the application of wheel weights, and technicians can choose to apply weights using the arm, which locks when positioned in the correct plane, or with the Laser Guided Operation feature, which pinpoints the application location in the 5 o’clock position.

Up to four technicians can save their preferred settings independently, and the Static on Screen display simultaneously presents static and dynamic data to identify any excess residual static imbalance.

The standard clamp locking model features a threaded shaft for more traditional mounting, and the Diagnostic PL model features a pneumatic locking mounting system, which Hennessy said reduces mounting time by several seconds. Operators hold the assembly in place and press the foot pedal to activate the pneumatic cylinder, which applies a consistent pressure on each wheel and helps eliminate mounting errors. The assembly automatically locks in place at the proper weight placement location.
