SEMA Show, Day Four: Ravaglioli balancer has wheel lift
Rav America, the U.S. division of Ravaglioli SpA of Italy, has redesigned its G7 series balancers. The company displayed the refreshed equipment at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.
New features include a zero-gravity pneumatic wheel lift that enables technicians to control the tire with one hand, according to Chad Triptow, account manager.
In addition, the tire is positioned on a pneumatic shaft which can be operated by a foot pedal or by touch-screen monitor.
Triptow says tires can be match mounted to reduce ride vibration, and a laser pinpoints the exact placement of wheel weights.
The new balancers are available now. For more information, visit www.ravmerica.com.
