Hennessy will reveal new balancer at SEMA

Hennessy Industries Inc. will unveil the Coats-branded Vero Series V200 Wheel Balancer at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Nov. 5-8, booth #43167.

Hennessy says its next-generation Coats balancer focuses on superior design, ease of use and a thorough operating cycle to help tire dealers deliver a better balance the first time, every time.

“With the V200, we insisted on high levels of accuracy rather than give our users an 'OK' balance that risks a customer comeback,” says Kevin Keefe, vice president of marketing.

“Vero literally translates to ‘the truth.’ We’re arming tire dealers with the true information they need to minimize residual imbalance in order to reduce comebacks and get a better balance the first time, every time.”

The V200 features the next generation of Coats’ Direct Drive technology. Unlike indirect drive systems that use belts and pulleys, Direct Drive combines the motor and spindle into a single, prebalanced assembly that stays accurate for years and never needs to be recalibrated to zero. 

The company says every feature of the V200 works together to improve accuracy. A patented laser-guided weight placement system pinpoints the exact weight location, both radially and axially, minimizing residual imbalances. The industrial-grade touchscreen has an intuitive interface that helps technicians perform 85% of wheel balances without ever touching the screen.

“During the engineering phase of the V200, we looked for opportunities to improve speed, reduce operator error and accelerate training,” says Keefe.

“The result is the V200’s new user interface. We’ve standardized the wheel balancing into a step-by-step process that speeds up the balancing process, eliminates training hurdles and puts one-spin accuracy within anyone’s reach.”

Hennessy is offering a chance to win a Vero Series V200 Wheel Balancer. Enter the contest at SEMA booth #43167 or register at Winners will be announced Dec. 15, 2013, via email.
