Snap-on introduces the John Bean RFV 2000 Automated Diagnostic Wheel Balancer. The John Bean RFV 2000 incorporates “stripe-of-light” technology that provides advanced measuring processes to eliminate the need for mechanical measuring devices used in other wheel balancing systems. With three-dimensional data obtained from optical cameras, the RFV 2000 provides a three-dimensional scaled color display of the tread, sidewall and wheel along with a graphical representation of data to allow pinpoint location of localized runout. Other features include:
- Identifies tread depth and drivability issues; only diagnostic balancer on the market that automatically identifies wheel surface issues such as bulges, flat spots and cuts.
- Match-mounts out of round tires and wheels, utilizing run out and calculated radial force variation.
- Easy to use; only diagnostic balancer on the market that diagnoses a wheel in a fully automatic mode.
