Truck wheel balancers, also known as Commercial Vehicle Wheel Balancers are machines used to ensure the even distribution of weight around the wheels of a truck.
They play a crucial role in maintaining the stability and smooth operation of the vehicle. These balancers are designed to identify and correct any imbalances in the weight distribution of the wheel and tyre assembly on large commercial vehicles such as Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV), Buses, Coaches, Trucks, Tractors, lorries and earth-moving vehicles.
Imbalances within the wheel rotation can lead to uneven tyre wear, vibrations, and reduced handling performance. Truck wheel balancers utilise sensors and rotating equipment to measure the weight distribution and then the user can apply counterweights to ensure that the wheel spins evenly. This process enhances driving comfort, safety, and the overall lifespan of the vehicle tyres and other components.
