Corghi offers upgraded wheel balancers
Corghi has upgraded its range of wheel balancers for premium garage work with the new Plus classification distinguishing advanced features and benefits. The latest machines are available exclusively through Rema Tip Top in the UK.
The latest wheel balancer from Corghi is the EM9580C Plus TS, which is equipped with premium touchscreen and contactless technology. Positioned between the top of the range models and standard Corghi machines, the fully automatic EM9580C Plus TS offers a competitively priced option with high functionality and performance.
The balancer offers greater efficiency, working without ever touching the wheel, or any manual operation by technicians. Reduced spin and diagnostic times, alongside the graphic interface and touchscreen technology, make the EM9580C Plus TS one of the fastest on the market, Rema Tip Top states. The distributor recommends the balancer to tyre centres, car dealers and car manufacturers dealing with large volumes.
Corghi also offers the EM9980C Plus, featuring a high-end specification suited to large tyre depots undertaking a constant stream of work. Spin and diagnostic times are improved by 40 per cent over the previous generation, while the new Hiddden weight programme automatically identifies without contact the number and position of the spokes in hidden weight balancing mode. Also featuring a touchscreen interface, the model speeds up operations and work programme selection. Wheel dimension measurement is undertaken by a contactless system enabled by high precision laser sensors that automatically measure all wheel dimensions in a few seconds during the measurement cycle. At the end of the spin cycle, the wheel is stopped and brought automatically into the balancing position (RPA). The integrated LED light illuminates the work area to facilitate rim cleaning and application of the counterweights. The internal point laser pointer indicates the correct position for applying the adhesive counterweights with absolute precision.
The EM9980C Plus also features a new automatic electromechanical wheel-clamping system, which cuts operating times and increases centring precision.
The range topping Eyelight Plus DiagnosticLine is one of the most technologically advanced wheel balancers on the market, its distributor adds. The machine is equipped with an industrial personal computer and is totally automatic. In addition to the four centring cones, Eyelight Plus is equipped standard with the “High Precision Collets” kit for optimal wheel centring. The kit includes eight double-faced low conicity collets made with high mechanical resistance steel. The new cabinet now includes side housings for the kits so the work area is always kept in order.
