Coats Vero Series V200 wheel balancer

LA VERGNE, Tenn. (June 30, 2014) — Hennessy Industries Inc. has launched the Coats Vero Series V200 wheel balancer, which features “ProBalance Technology,” a balancing algorithm and unbalance correction methodology that solves a leading cause of comebacks—residual unbalance, according to the company.

“ProBalance Technology, coupled with the most accurate drive and measurement systems, calculates the precise amount and location of corrective weights to deliver a no-compromise performance balance. This eliminates the risks associated with other technologies that intentionally leave residual unbalance,” said Kevin Keefe, vice president of marketing for Hennessy.

“Vero literally translates as ‘the truth.’ We’re arming tire shops with a more accurate balancing method designed to reduce the vast majority of unbalance-related comebacks and deliver a performance balance the first time.”

The V200 features Coats’ Direct Drive technology, which combines the motor and spindle into a single, factory pre-balanced assembly that stays calibrated to zero and reduces noise and vibration, the company said.

The unit’s patented Laser Guided Operation pinpoints the exact weight location, both radially and axially, eliminating trial and error. An industrial-grade interactive touchscreen interface delivers step-by-step balancing cycles.

More information about the V200 is available by calling 855-876-3864 or on the Hennessy website.
