There are some tyre shops and garages who simply want the best, and see the value in investing in high-end equipment.
For those customers, the megaspin 1200P is the machine of choice, representing the flagship in the Hofmann Megaplan range. Literally loaded with every feature we have at our disposal, such as No Checkspin, OWB (One Weight Balance), megaclamp pneumatic clamping and Ultra HD Graphics, the megaspin 1200P also boasts our AVS (Anti-Vibration Software) for rim/tyre diagnostics such as uniformity, and Touchless capturing of the rim data via a laser scan which takes the full profile of the rim.
The megaspin 1200P can either be used in the traditional sense, whereby it becomes probably the simplest, fastest floor-to-floor wheel balancer on the market, or in a more diagnostic sense, where the advanced characteristics of the rim can be used to determine where on the vehicle each wheel is best suited for the best ride. ‘Top of the range’ really doesn’t do the megaspin 1200P justice, it sets a new standard in wheel balancers, appealing to those where, quite simply, only the best will do.
The ability to balance without having to do a subsequent checkspin makes this one of the fastest balancers start to end there is. Two laser spots each show the correct positioning for adhesive wheel weights and clip-on wheel weights ensuring accuracy is not compromised where speed is gained. For a regular sized tyre, the measuring cycle is less than 5 seconds. This speed is aided by the pneumatic clamping which allows a fast fixing of the tyre on the balancer. What's more, an LED light enlightens the position inside the rim where the adhesive weights need to go. All this has been designed through practice to avoid the need for repeat positioning of wheel weights and offer fitters greater efficiencies in a routine process.
Hofmann Megaplan has worked on a completely new chassis for the 1200P, meaning the workspace is significantly more accessible than on conventional wheel balancing machines. A secondary function to the LED light is the ability to help the operator ensure the rim is clean and a Touch Screen means easy access to the balancers settings. The system is designed to be intuitive in use with input where you'd expect them to be if required.
OWB is a software feature fast becoming a favourite amongst Hofmann Megaplan customers. Where possible the balancer will show only one single correction plane instead of two, cutting the need for wheel weights in half. This leads to time savings of up to 30% on a standard balance for 70% of wheels.
OWB is a revolutionary step forward for wheel balancing. It is simple, fast, easy-to-do and highly precise.
