The new AC400 Touchless Alignment Wheel Clamp from John Bean provides secure clamping without touching the rim. This device allows service technicians to receive accurate and repeatable results coupled with ease of use and durability, according to the company.

“The John Bean Touchless Alignment Wheel Clamp is unique in the marketplace because it allows the user to securely clamp to the tire without touching the rim while still giving them accurate and highly repeatable results,” said Jon LaRue, director, product management for Snap-on Equipment. “The AC400 is fast and easy to use. Clamping is accomplished with a single fast-action adjustment knob which adjusts to the full range of tire sizes, without exchanging accessories, in just a few turns. Service technicians will see an immediate improvement in performance and productivity when they start using the AC400.”

The clutch limited-clamping force of the John Bean AC400 Touchless Alignment Wheel Clamp ensures consistent and secure attachment, the company said. With its patented, self-centering design, the John Bean AC400 allows measurement of cross-diagonal and tire-rolling radius that helps to reveal collision damage and mismatched tire sizes. Made of durable, drop-tested, lightweight cast magnesium construction, the AC400 eases the weight users have to carry. The AC400 also features a large, comfortable handle that is simple to operate and accommodates gloved hands, the company stated.

John Bean offers a video (view below) that highlights the features and benefits of the AC400 and provides instructions on how to operate it. In addition, customers can learn more about the John Bean AC400 by calling 877-482-4866 or visiting www.snaponequipment.com/johnbean.
