4. Aids Bead Seating
- When mounting and inflating new tires, the tire bead may
not reach its optimum seat on the rim due to rusted steel
rims, lack of lubrication during mounting, or difficult mounting
of low-profile tires.
- In some cases, the GSP 9700 load roller produces enough
force to seat the tire bead properly without road testing
Hidden Vibration Problems With OEM-Matching
The GSP 9700 OEM-Matching
procedure duplicates the tire force variation measurement
and rim runout low-spot matching method used exclusively
by vehicle manufacturers to provide that "new
car ride." The OEM-Matching procedure cancels tire force
variation with rim runout. (This is not the same as balancer "matching" that
merely minimizes weights required.)
The GSP 9700 indicates if the assembly can be OEM-Matched
or if the tire or rim is out of spec and needs to be replaced.
Tires with marginal force variation can even be matched to
other rims at a later date. (Exclusive Match Code feature)
Easily Chosen Balancing Procedures
Display shows weight types and placement selection.
- Standard balance using clip-on weights.
- Combination of clip-on and adhesive weights.
- Hidden adhesive weights only.
Infinite positioning (no "best
- Patch Balance: using weighted patches inside oversized
off-road tire applications.
Automatic Double Dataset®Arms
Inner and Outer Dataset® Arms double as measuring
tools for lateral and radial runout and speeds placement of
clip-on or adhesive weights. Reduces possible errors by eliminating
manual data entry.
Simply move Dataset arms to "touch" any
chosen position for instant and accurate entry of data. (See
Split Weight® Mode
Exclusive Split Weight® Mode feature splits
the weight into two smaller weights providing the most accurate
balance and reduced weight inventory.
- No need to inventory large weights.
- Multiple choices in case required weight is out of stock.
- Avoid trim ring obstructions.
Servo Stop Wheel Positioning (patent
Positions rim at Inner DATASET® Arm
weight location for exact placement of adhesive weights.
Servo Stop Wheel Positioning constantly repositions
wheel to seek desired weight location (TDC or BDC) and returns
even if pushed away.
- With a double tap of the
foot pedal the "intelligent" DC
drive system activates motor-assisted wing nut spin on/off.
Eliminates hand cranking of the wing nut to "take up" the
unused spindle threads.
- Strongest wing nut in the industry is just as fast to use
as less durable quick clamp designs.
