Hofmann Releases New geodyna Wheel Balancer
June 2, 2016—Hofmann announced Wednesday the release of its new geodyna 8250p Wheel Balancer.
“The Hofmann geodyna 8250p is the ideal wheel balancer for use on all types of cars and light trucks,” said Brian Gates, product manager for Hofmann. “By integrating innovative, time-saving features, we have introduced a real difference-maker. The geodyna 8250p is not just another wheel balancer, but a stand-out in the market and valuable shop asset that will improve shop performance and productivity.”
Features of the geodyna 8250p Wheel Balancer include:
- Integrated Wheel Lift – automatically raises the wheel to the last centering height with the platform returning to rest position for reduced floor-to- cycle time. Sensor in handle automatically detects hand force to move lift accordingly.
- Radial and Lateral Run-Out – high accuracy laser technology measures degree of deviation from a perfect circle, enabling match-mounting to improve roundness and reduce geometric vibrations.
- Touchless Parameter Entry – no need for manual entry or using a measuring caliper as all of the wheel parameters are measured by lasers and the camera is built into the wheel balancer.
- User Interface – highly intuitive touchscreen user interface allows for rapid, time-saving selection of cycle modes.
