The compact 3D balancer with digital display
F380 is an entry level wheel balancer with unbeatable features and quality, granted by the deep study of every single element.
Mechanics developed with the help of computer simulations, AutoAdaptive mode and innovative software Virtual Sonar which, in the absence of an actual sonar device, detects the rim width
- Detection of wheel data
The automatic gauge enables detection of distance and diameter (from 12″ to 28″) with relative activation of desired balancing program (clip-on or stick-on weights). No error due to manual inputs possible.
The machine enables the operator to work according to his preferences. The correct application of counterweights can be selected in two different modes: with the accuracy of position repeater or the conventional 12 o’clock position.
- Virtual Sonar
Virtual Sonar is the new software for a 3D wheel measurement which enables, in the absence of an actual sonar device, to detect the rim width. After having detected the first correction plane thanks to the automatic gauge, Virtual Sonar calculates the position of the external plane, according to the measured unbalance and the tolerance calculated with AutoAdaptive mode.
- AutoAdaptive Mode
The innovative tolerance calculation system AutoAdaptive Mode is based on the evaluation of the residual imbalance limit value corresponding to an acceptable perceived vibration. For each wheel that is balanced, the software AutoAdaptive Mode detects weight and dimensions and calculates the tolerance value that will cancel any vibration perceived on the steering wheel. AutoAdaptive Mode grants the highest comfort when driving.
- Programs: ALU S - SPLIT - OPTIMIZATION
F380 features all the latest programs for unbalance correction. Unlimited correction modes for stick-on weights (ALU S), hidden weights behind the spokes (SPLIT) and matching (UNBALANCE OPTIMIZATION).
The entire range of FOCUS balancers is manufactured to the strict high standards imposed by the company. Heavy duty batch balancing use doesn’t hamper even the smallest of FOCUS balancers. Thanks to this sturdiness, the choice of an appropriate model is not subject to intensity of use but only to service requested. Each model differs from the other in levels of process automation and analysis capability effect on wheel.
- Wheel guard (optional)
The extremely low spin speed enables use of machine without wheelguard.
The choice of optional wheelguard protects operator and ambient from mud and water sprays.
