A Laser Wheel Balancer for Supreme Speed and Amazing Accuracy
The LS43B laser wheel balancer is capable of handling wheels up to 43” in diameter. On average, the cycle time is only 7 seconds, which makes it one of the fastest floor-to-floor balancing machines Ranger has ever created.
Ranger’s revolutionary 3D Auto Data Entry system combines their exclusive DataWand™ and Quick-Touch Data Arm™, which will allow you to automatically enter all wheel parameter settings in seconds flat. That gets you wheel diameter, wheel width, offset distance, and targeted weight placement selections for exact balancing every time. All you’ll need to do is extend the built-in measuring wands and tap the wheel. After that you’ll be able to achieve your desired wheel profile and wheel weight settings without having to manually input the data. That being said, if you’d prefer to do things yourself, you can use the manual soft-touch control panel to enter the data in manually.
Laser balancers are increasingly being used in high-volume shops since they eliminate second-guessing and speed up weight placements. This means that the balance check you perform after placing inboard and outboard weights will almost always be clean. The fewer weights you use, the more your bottom line will increase. Not only that, but your customers will love the long-lasting balances that make their rides feel like new again.
When ALU modes are selected and stick-on weights are desired, an instinctive laser will mark the low-side of the wheel at the 6-o’-clock position, making stick-on weight placement and installation a breeze. Once it’s time for the clip-on weights, the intuitive data control will automatically sense that the topside weight position is desired and pinpoints the laser at precisely 12-o’-clock. Laser-Spot™ weight-positioning lasers provide greater weight placement accuracy while helping reduce mistakes. More single-spin balances and fewer customer comebacks will increase productivity and profits. It couldn’t be easier.
Automatic wheel data entry
The LS43B features Ranger’s 3D Auto Data Entry technology, which means you’ll never have to manually input wheel parameters again. On average, it takes an ordinary tech an average of three seconds to retrieve the wheel diameter, wheel width, and offset distance from the balancer. Ranger’s extendable DataWand™ is capable of automatically retrieving all outer wheel information, while the inner data set arm detects the offset distance between the machine and your tire-and-wheel configuration.
Highly precise digital sensor technology
Ranger’s Digital Sensor Technology is highly accurate and features a 16-digital signal processor and single-chip technology that increases productivity and offers unprecedented speed and accuracy, especially during the sophisticated balance and weight placement techniques which are required for new high-tech OEM and aftermarket wheels.
Once you lower the spacious wheel hood, the LS43B laser balancer spins into action, delivering precise outboard and inboard weight placements in mere seconds. You’ll be able to choose the option that best suits your specific wheel profile, such as static, dynamic, and ALU weight placements.
After a quick spin of the wheel, a dual-plane automatic electromagnetic braking system automatically slows, stops, and holds the wheel in the correct position, which then eliminates the need for a foot-activated brake with wheel-holding pedals. Your technicians will be able to move freely without restraints when placing weights on both the inner and outer faces of the wheel. At the exact moment the brake is engaged, dual Laser-Spot™ lasers come to life and will pinpoint exactly where either the stick-on or clip-on wheel weights should be fastened. A bright, wide LED beam is activated at the precise moment the balancer brake engages. The LED assist light, dual lasers and auto brake will all remain active until the stop button is manually pressed.
Multi-directional quartz piezoelectric load sensors
This wheel balancer utilizes extremely precise dual-component piezoelectric quartz load sensors combined with a single digital rotation encoder which together can measure the longitudinal, transversal, and shear effects for multi-directional force unbalance detection. Since the sensors are comprised of fine quartz, you’ll receive extremely high frequency detection in all measurable directions.
Quick and precise setup
A self-centering, non-marring Quick-Nut and bell adapter set will make sure you’ll have proper centering of the wheel. It will also eliminate common, counterproductive setup errors. You’ll be able to mount wheels faster and easier, minimizing the risk of customer come backs or costly wheel damage.
Mounting cone package
Every LS43B comes equipped with both standard and heavy-duty mounting cones, in addition to a full accessory tooling package. It includes Ranger’s standard car and light truck cones, as well as heavy-duty truck cone. This high-quality package includes three automotive and light truck cones, including: 1.75” – 2.75”, 2.75” – 3.50” and 3.50” – 4.25”, as well as one truck cone 4.50” – 5.00”.
Tape weight feeder
This balancer features an open-top side shelf which accommodates a large roll of Ranger Quick-Peel™ adhesive tape weights. Your purchase of the LS43B comes with a wheel weight starter kit which fits directly into a built-in tape weight feeder. If you need anymore weight, they are available for purchase any time.
Automatic weight optimization
The LS43B laser wheel balancer sports a computer interface with weight optimization technology which automatically calculates the minimum amount of weight needed to achieve optimal balance. Minimizing weight usage at your shop is sure to add up to significant savings over time, dramatically increasing your bottom line.
This balancer has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible. It sports an anti-reflective, touch-pad display panel which features tire and wheel assembly graphics that help simplify the speedy entry of wheel data. The display panel efficiently guides techs through each balancing procedure. All operator function keys are labeled with simple, easy-to-read icons to help operators identify and command all balancing functions.
LED rolling wheel weight displays
There are bright LED weight placement indicators which show weight positions as the wheel is gently rolled to exact top-dead-center. Tiered weight placement indicators help identify out-of-sight weight placements, including split-weight or hidden “behind-the-spoke” techniques. Indicators will end up assisting operators with clip-on and tape weight placement at precise locations for zero-on balancing.
Wheel weight starter kit
Every new LS43B laser wheel balancer comes with a free kit of wheel weights. The starter kit contains one bulk roll of 100 silver adhesive steel tape weights, one bulk roll of 100 black adhesive steel tape weights and a starter box of mixed clip-on steel weights. It’s Ranger’s way of getting you started right. If you ever find yourself needing more wheel weights, they’re available for purchase at any time.
