THE Truck Wheel Balancer
A full‐menu of time saving features
include dynamic, static, and performance alloy settings allowing you to balance
large and small wheel configurations with minimal effort and speed. Brightly
displayed LED indicators mark the exact amount and location for wheel weight
placement in mere seconds. Like all Ranger wheel balancers, the RB24T is
commercial‐grade for perfectly balanced
wheels day after day and around the clock.
Automatic Weight Optimization
truck wheel balancer automatically calculates the minimum amount of weight
needed to achieve an optimal balance for the tire and wheel configuration so
you use less weight which adds up to real savings and increases your bottom
Drive‐Check™ Technology Proprietary Drive‐Check technology
dramatically improves rotational measuring typically used to diagnose and
repair ride disturbance complications. The highly precise RB24T performs a
computer generated driving simulation then checks and measures the tire/wheel
assembly for imbalance and possible run out of the rim and tire. With the
RB24T, virtually all possible complaints due to rotational imbalance are
eliminated before the wheel is mounted on the vehicle.
A touch‐pad display panel simplifies
speed entry of wheel data and helps guide technicians through balancing
procedures. Operator function keys are labeled with simple, easy‐toread icons helping operators
identify and command all balancing functions. Bright LED weight placement
indicators show weight positions as the wheel is gently rolled to exact top‐dead‐center. A pneumatic braking
system automatically engages and secures the wheel firmly in place as soon as
the weight placement indicators are lighted and positioned at top‐dead‐center.
The highly precise and accurate RB24T features 64‐bit architecture
and single‐chip technology for unprecedented speed and
accuracy. Single‐chip 64‐bit architecture provides improved stability and
accuracy along with greater application speed and data processing while using
less hardware. By reducing hardware, service and maintenance costs are reduced
and equipment life cycle is increased. An extremely fast dedicated hyper
transport protocol allows data to communicate with the micro‐processor
at much faster speeds resulting in lower power consumption, reduced heat and
increased stability and accuracy.
Although versatile, single phase motors have their limitations, especially in
heavy start‐up conditions. Single phase motors require special
starting arrangements such as capacitors, additional windings and switches in
order to get them turning under load. The RB24T features a robust 380V three‐phase
drive motor to overcome these limitations and get heavy wheels spinning
quickly. A built‐in digital solid‐state phase converter produces 3‐
phase output voltage regardless of single or three phase power supply.
Multi‐Directional Quartz Piezoelectric Force Sensors
The RB24T uses highly precise dual‐component piezoelectric quartz load sensors combined
with a single digital rotation encoder that measure both longitudinal,
transversal, and shear effects for multi‐directional force unbalance detection. The
piezoelectric force sensors used on the RB24T are very sensitive and offer long‐term
stability and freedom from fatigue for a service life that is virtually
unlimited. The high rigidity quartz crystal sensors result in very high
frequency detection in all three directions of measurement.
Fully Equipped Multi‐Piece Wheel Mounting Adapter Kit – Everything is Included
Quick‐Chuck Kit ‐ Our quick‐chuck kit reduces operator fatigue and decreases
set‐up times dramatically.
Installation and accuracy is not affected by the weight of wheel because auto‐centering hardened steel wheel‐holding supports lift, hold and
automatically center heavy wheels with ease. Perfectly balanced three‐jaw chuck features a forged steel
body and hardened wheel‐supports and gear slides.
Flange Plate and Stud Kit ‐ A universal flange plate kit
features multi‐position interchangeable pins to
provide quick setup and universal fitment. The kit adapts to varying lug bolt
Standard Cone Kit ‐ The RB24T tooling package
includes a fully equipped six‐piece
cone kit for full coverage of most all wheel configurations from cars and light
trucks to super‐duty truck, bus and OTR. This
well‐equipped package includes five
standard cones and one dual tapered cone; individual cone sizes; 2.00‐2.75, 2.75‐4.00, 4.00 – 5.75, 6.00 – 6.50,
6.75 – 8.00, 8.25 – 9.00, and 10, 75 – 11.50.
An integrated wheel lift helps technicians mount wheels effortlessly on the
balancer preventing potential injuries and reducing fatigue. The 500‐pound capacity push‐button controlled wheel lift
quickly raises the wheel to exact heights and a bearing mounted slider
positions them for easy mounting. One handed operation means the technician’s
free hand remains able to control the wheel assembly once it is lifted into the
wheels need power assisted braking in order to safely reduce wheel spin. The
faster the wheel starts and stops increases productivity and profits. The RB‐24T features electro‐magnetic pulse control combined
with pneumatic braking to get heavy wheels stopping in mere seconds. The
pneumatic braking system engages automatically as soon as the weight placement
indicator is positioned at top‐dead‐center. Automatic air brakes hold
wheels firmly in place during surface preparation and weight placement
operations. Up‐front controls on the display
panel allow you to engage and disengage the pneumatic brake with a simple push
of a button.
