AAPEX 2012: Bosch debuts WBE 4430 balancer with wheel illumination
Bosch is introducing the new WBE 4430 wheel balancer at booth #5037 this week at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas, Nev.
“The WBE 4430 and all Bosch wheel balancers are designed to provide superior accuracy, repeatability and value,” says Mike Tortorello, product manager, balancers, changers and lathes at Robert Bosch LLC.
The balancer features an LED light ring that illuminates the work area. With automatic one-touch data entry, Bosch says the WBE 4430 is for shops looking for high performance equipment at affordable prices. It also includes high-performance low taper mounting adaptors for more accurate and repeatable mounting.
“All Bosch high performance wheel balancers include the performance mounting adaptors at no additional charge,” Tortorello says.
A simple to use, picture-based software interface is designed specifically for intuitive operation by the most novice users. The WBE 4430 wheel balancer increases weight placement accuracy through the use of a laser light indicator as well as a self-locking weight application arm that eliminates user error and ensures that the weight is placed at the proper location every time, says Bosch.
