The Bosch portfolio of
advanced wheel balancers ranges from compact, tech friendly balancers to
sophisticated electronic and laser-actuated units. According to the company, Bosch
balancers offer precision balancing with clear and accurate displays,
incorporating easy-to-use features and navigation.

“Hard working Bosch wheel
balancers combine the latest electronics with robust engineering, designed to
make wheel balancing highly productive,” said Frank Nowaczyk, Group Product
Manager, Wheel Service for Bosch Diagnostics Business Unit. “Whether the shop
needs a large, high volume unit or a small, compact balancer, these durable,
trouble-free balancers provide accurate, fast wheel balancing whenever it is
needed,” he said.

The Bosch wheel balancer
portfolio includes:

WBE 4110 COMPACT WHEEL
BALANCER

The WBE 4110 is a compact wheel balancer offering an Invisible weight mode for
hiding weights behind spokes and a weight optimization mode that reads wheel
imbalance, allowing the technician to match tire and wheels for greater
accuracy. A simple and intuitive control panel provides greater functionality.
The unit includes a Quick Clamp wing-nut, extended 40mm shaft, and standard
five (5) cone passenger car and light truck cone kit.

WBE
4140 WHEEL BALANCER

The Bosch WBE
4140 wheel balancer features an easy-to-read upright LCD monitor, with
intuitive and straightforward steps illustrated on the monitor. The 4140 offers
an attractive blend of accuracy, reliability, and versatility, including the
ability to accommodate a wide variety of stock, alloy, and custom wheels used
on passenger cars and light trucks, as well as motorcycle wheels with the
proper accessories. Separate programs for static versus dynamic balancing, and
multiple-user formats for shops that may have several operators, provide many
different choices. The software incorporates an innovative capability to match
wheels and tires to each other, offsetting possible negative effects of
tolerance build-up. And the programming also allows for selective positioning
of weights behind the spokes of alloy or custom wheels without any negative
effects on the accuracy or quality of the balance. An automatic ‘2D’ measuring
system, which automatically records Diameter and Distance of the correction
weight location, is included as a standard feature.

WBE 4230
The WBE 4230 is a strong workhorse in a small package, featuring a bright and
easy to read enhanced color LCD display and straightforward, exact
attachment of all concealed adhesive weights using the electronic Easyfit data
recording arm. The unit includes an electronic sensing arm for rim distance,
diameter and width, and 11 balancing programs for passenger car and motorcycle
wheels, with a split program for exact positioning of weights behind the
spokes. The WBE 4230 can be converted easily to pivot pin or motorcycle wheel flange.
Included are holders for flanges and accessories, and standard five (5) cone
passenger car cone kit (44-130mm), with light truck spacer ring

WBE 4430
Bosch’s WBE 4430 offers automatic, precise and quick wheel data input via
electronic data sensor arms, and features an Easyfix data recording arm for
measuring rim diameter, or indication of adhesive weight position on the inside
of the rim. The data recording arm, with adhesive weight clamping adapter,
automatically locks if accurate positioning of concealed adhesive balance
weights is on the inside of the rim. An inner wheel light and laser ring light
the interior of the rim, which aids precise fitment of balance weights at TDC
or BDC positions. The WBE 4430 features user programmable hot keys that provide
a shortcut to the most frequently used features, and the unit’s integrated
self-test software and calibration routine ensure simplified machine
maintenance. A multi-user program allows parallel operation by service staff.

WBE 4510 WHEEL BALANCER
A laser sensor on the WBE 4510 provides fully automated measurements for tire
width, run-out and tire symmetry. Balance force, combined with laser run-out
measurement, match mounts tire and wheels to solve balance and
eccentricity-based vibration problems. The laser run-out eccentricity
measurement calculates the best possible match mount locations based on all
four harmonics, not just the first harmonic. This yields more effective
predictions of the match mount results, reducing unexpected poor results and loss
in technician labor time. The unit’s weight optimization mode measures
individual rim and tire imbalance, allowing the technician to match tire and
rims for reduced weight use. The WBE 4510’s standard, pneumatic, integrated
wheel lift effortlessly lifts and centers the wheel on the balancer shaft for
more accurate mounting. Other features include automatic, three-parameter entry
(3D), quick clamp wing nut, extended 40mm shaft, standard five (5) cone
passenger car cone kit (44-130mm), and light truck spacer ring.
