Hunter Road Force Elite balancer update 4.0 released
LAS VEGAS-Miscentering during wheel balancing is a major cause of improper balancing and customer comebacks. Hunter’s Road Force® Elite features Automatic CenteringCheck® technology with new 4.0 software that checks assembly centering on every spin and notifies the technician of improper centering. The result is improved quality, increased shop efficiency and customer retention.
Road Force® Elite 4.0 software also features a Balancer Report Card™ with a specified inner error and outer error amount and a letter grade to optimize weight placement. Presenting a ‘scorecard’ to the technician after a balance has been completed enhances balancer performance. Hunter’s patented vision system completes a 3D scan of the wheel to determine the accuracy of wheel weight placement, which helps technicans learn on-the-job.
The vision system also enhances Hunter’s patented SmartWeight® technology, making Road Force® Elite the most accurate and efficient balancer on the market. The system also features automatic spoke detection, which guides technicians to place wheel weights behind the spokes.
