John Bean Wheel Balancer: Redesigned Software Interface

John Bean Wheel Balancer w/ Redesigned Software Interface

The B2000P detects all wheel dimensions, resulting in automatic selection of the balancing mode, weight type and positions.

John Bean has redesigned its software user interface for its B2000P Wheel Balancer to improve functionality and boost performance.

“The John Bean B2000P wheel balancer now has a software user interface that matches the look of John Bean wheel aligners, making the software on the BP2000P easier to use,” said Mariana Montovaneli, director of marketing for John Bean. “The interface offers a set of features for the B2000P to ensure that our customers have the most intuitive and productive solutions available today.”

Enhancements to the John Bean B2000P interface include the automatic data entry feature that automatically detects all wheel dimensions, resulting in an automatic selection of the balancing mode, weight type and positions. Since no manual data entry is necessary, this time-saving feature will speed up the balancing cycle time while minimizing operational errors.

Another key element of the B2000P is laser 3D surface mapping, which utilizes a high-resolution camera and laser-based technology to provide sidewall analysis, as well as depth, wear and tire surface abnormalities that are displayed in an easy-to-read format.

The addition of the optiLine software interface feature on the John Bean B2000P helps bring accuracy to another level. Because all tires are not the same, drivability issues can develop, including vibration and pulling. By suggesting the optimal location for each wheel in the set based on a predetermined set of criteria, optiLine addresses any pull or vibration-related issues.

The John Bean B2000P wheel balancer is the only automated diagnostic wheel balancing system that offers touchless measurement and analysis, according to the company. Automatic inputs remove the chance for error and inaccurate results. When combined with precise wheel balancing, the Runout Force Vectoring (RFV) diagnostics assure uniformity based total ride quality.
