LAS VEGAS (Dec. 2, 2014) — Hoffman USA displayed its Hofmann geodyna 7850p at this year's Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Vegas.

This video wheel balancing system includes a BW4030 wheel lift for fast handling of wheels up to 154 pounds. The wheel is automatically raised to the last centering height and the platform automatically returns to the rest position, thus reducing floor-to-floor cycle time, Hoffman said.

The balancing system includes a fast touch screen monitor with large digits and colored weight position indicators and a redesigned weight tray with 18 weight pockets.

The balancing cycle is only 4.5 seconds.
