Garage Equipment Division
FOCUS offers innovative, patented solutions and the widest range of products in the world. High performance, superior accuracy, operational simplicity, reliability are the features which distinguish the FOCUS line of garage professional balancing machines.
Since 1952 FOCUS offers the most diverse and complete range of balancing machines available on the market, in addition to wheel alignments and tyre changers for cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles. In 1952 moreover FOCUS created the cone adapters for balancing machines and since then the company continued developing and producing high precision centering systems for any type of wheel.
Major tyre manufcturers worldwide choose FOCUS for its extremely high-tech industrial systems for mounting, inflating, matching, bead seating-optimizing, balancing, uniformity and eccentricity.
Automatic approach to the correction position
To facilitate and speed up the calibration procedure, FOCUS has introduced the automatic approach to the correction position on all balancing machines equipped with electric brake that are not provided with automatic positioning system. Once the measuring launch is completed, the wheel automatically stops around 15° from the exact point of application of the counterweight, allowing […]Continue ›
The innovative FOCUS software which detects the rim width
What is it? Virtual Sonar is the new FOCUS software which enables, in the absence of an actual sonar device, to detect the rim width of steel rims without having to enter them in manually. The software automatically calculates the rim width from the first correction plane and checks its reliability based on the measured unbalance and […]Continue ›
KIT ADAS CCD
ADAS positioning system
FOCUS ADAS CCD KIT allows positioning of the CCD sensors on any ADAS/ACC calibration structure by means of universal adapters and, through a very quick and simple software included in the alignment program, enables to facilitate the positioning. WHY?Before carrying out the calibrations of ADAS and ACC systems it is necessary to check alignment of the […]Continue ›
OPB: ONE PLANE BALANCING
CORRECT BOTH STATIC AND DYNAMIC UNBALANCES: ONE PLANE, ONE WEIGHT, HALF TIME
OPB is the innovative FOCUS program that enables a 40% balancing time saving. Static unbalance is the source of most vibrations felt by the driver. On the current wheel balancers, even if it is possible to balance only the static, it is very difficult not to increase the residual dynamic value, with the consequent risk to […]Continue ›
THE NEW TOLERANCE CALCULATION SYSTEM
With traditional wheel balancing, a wheel is considered balanced when the residual imbalance is less than 5 g per plane, independent of the wheel’s dimensions and weight. The vibration a driver perceives when driving, considering whatever imbalance, also sources from the wheel’s weight and shape. The heavier the wheel is the less a residual imbalance […]Continue ›
Perfect balancing in just one spin!
Greatest accuracy during the positioning of stick-on weights through laser spotter: perfect balancing in just one spin. Preview of the exact weight positioning spot visible already during the wheel dimensions acquisition phase. During the correction, the LASER SPOTTER pinpoints the exact position for stick-on weights application inside the rim. Thanks to the electric brake – […]Continue ›
