For the International Reifen
2016 fair in Essen, Germany, auto component major Bosch has presented new tyre -service
devices and related test equipment.
These include two wheel balancers with a feature allowing contact-free
measurement of the tyre width. As the measurement results are displayed within
seconds, the efforts for the tyre specialist are reduced significantly.
Bosch has also presented a Tyre
lift relieving the load on the tyre specialists' back allowing them to work
ergonomically even with tyre changers of the latest generation. In addition,
the workshop expert Bosch also presents latest systems for vehicle diagnoses
and headlight adjustment.
New wheel balancers
The Bosch WBE 4440 Sonar and
WBE 4240 Sonar Digital tyre changers are equipped with a new feature allowing
contact-free measurement of the tyre width. Within just six seconds, WBE 4440
automatically displays the measurement results on a 19-inch LCD screen; WBE
4240 provides the same information on a digital display.
A 360-degree light ring ensures enough light
for attaching the balance weights. At the same time, it allows a clear view
into the rim interior. Moreover, the new Bosch wheel balancers allow stopping
the wheel at the optimum unbalance position. In case of WBE 4440, three
different laser marks also help positioning the balance weights manually. This
feature is optionally available for WBE 4240 as well.
New lift accessory for tyre changers
Bosch developed the new TSL
230 tyre lift particularly for tyre changers of the latest generation. It
allows its operator to work ergonomically at all times. The lift is installed
on the right side of the tyre changer, right next to the bead breaker. This position
and the integrated roller bed accelerate and ease the bead-braking process thus
increasing the workshop efficiency. The lift can, for instance, be installed
onto the pneumatic TCE 4400 and TCE 4470 tyre changers equipped with a tiltable
assembly column for car tire fitting. Both of these Bosch devices are
particularly suitable for tire specialists dealing with high volumes.

By means of KTS 970, Bosch
offers automotive workshops and tire specialists a great access to the business
of professional vehicle diagnosis. The package consists of both a KTS 570
diagnostic tester and a DCU 220 tablet computer for mobile application at the
workshop. This system allows performing complete ECU diagnoses. It is equipped
with a dual-channel multimeter and a a dual-channel oscilloscope. The
diagnostic tester and the tablet computer are connected via Bluetooth. The
Esitronic workshop software guides the user through all test and diagnostic steps.
