Direct measuring of correction planes
The main reason many wheel balancers are inefficient at work with alloy rims is using a traditional technology for detection weight installation sites. Calculations are made on the basis of wheel’s width and diameter data inputted manually via the gauge arm, and rim profile preset by the wheel balancer’s manufacturer.
However the mismatch between the actual rim profile and the suspended profile, the actual place of installation may significantly deviate from the estimated by the offset and the diameter. This in turn, leads to a residual imbalance. And therefore requires additional balancing cycles.
The measuring system based on Direct3D technology allows direct entry of weight adjustment parameters.
To input the parameters it is necessary to put on the electronic gauge to the supposed plane of load adjustment.
Based on data, the machine accurately calculates the required weight and its location. The final stage of Direct3D technology – adjustment of weight by the means of electronic gauge: accurately on distance, corresponding to input exactly in an angular position, the operator fixes the weight in the clamp, pulls it out to acoustical signal and presses to the rim. This technology allows balancing any wheel in one cycle.
Precise tape weights placing
When placing the weight by sight at 12 or 6 o’clock position (especially from the internal side of the wheel), it can be displaced up to 20 mm causing residual imbalance of 5–6 g per 50 g.
The final stage of Direct3D technology is the placement of tape weights with the gauge arm:
• precisely to the estimated distance
• precisely to the estimated angular position
• operator fixes the weight with the gauge arm clip, pulls the arm out till the beep sound and sticks the weight to the rim
