December 8, 2016 -- The new John Bean® B2000P Wheel Balancing System is the only automated diagnostic wheel balancing system that offers touchless measurement and analysis. Featuring the patented Opti-Line™ pull correction, the John Bean B2000P improves ride performance and rectifies pull problems that cannot be fixed by wheel alignment alone.

“Featuring all the traditional attributes of a high quality John Bean Wheel Balancing system, the new B2000P also includes laser-based 3D profiling that provides automatic diagnostic analysis,” said Adam Brown, product manager for John Bean. “The automatic data entry by the John Bean 2000P removes the chance for error and inaccurate results. When combined with precise wheel balancing, the Runout Force Vectoring (RFV) diagnostics ensure uniformity based total ride quality.”

Key features of the John Bean B2000P Wheel Balancing System include:

Runout Measurement - hundreds of thousands of measurement points are taken with a high resolution to create a 3D model of the tire and wheel assembly.

Laser Based Runout - quickly and easily provides advanced geometry related measurements using technology that surpasses the performance of mechanical roller-based systems.

Automatic 3D Tire Laser Mapping System - high resolution camera and laser based topography mapping emulates the same technology used by tire manufacturers in industrial applications. Tire tread and sidewall color analysis allows depth, wear and abnormalities to be displayed in a simple to interpret format.

Opti-Line Pull Correction - eliminates the need for multiple tire rotations to reposition tires and reduces the time required for road tests. Handles any kind of wheel, including wheels with directional tires.
