Hunter Engineering Co. has updated its Road Force Elite wheel balancer with Automatic CenteringCheck technology to have new 4.0 software that checks assembly centering on every spin and notifies the technician of improper centering.
Miscentering during wheel balancing is a major cause of improper balancing and customer comebacks. The Road Force Elite 4.0 software features a Balancer Report Card with a specified inner error and outer error amount and a letter grade to optimize weight placement that allows the technician to evaluate balancer performance.
Hunter’s upgraded software completes a 3D scan of the wheel to determine the accuracy of wheel weight placement, which helps technicians learn on-the-job. The system also enhances Hunter’s patented SmartWeight technology and automatic spoke detection, which guides technicians to place wheel weights behind the spokes.
