Beissbarth Displays Prototype Aligner at Automechanika Show
Nestled amongst its current product line-up at the recent Automechanika show in Frankfurt, Germany, was a prototype of Beissbarth’s latest generation 3D wheel alignment. Called the Easy3D, the new system builds on the tried-and-tested Beissbarth reference system and therefore combines the benefits of an open 3D system with a familiar user-friendly user interface. In addition, the camera used in the company’s KDS.NG axle measurement system is also used here.
The low measuring station width – 600mm to the left and right of the vehicle is all that is required – saves space in the workshop. The measuring heads are mobile, allowing for use in both small workshops and at different measuring stations. And when the system is not in use it can be stored away compactly in the workshop. Speaking about the prototype, Andreas Andorfer, managing director of Beissbarth GmbH, said: “Easy3D offers an especially ‘smart mix’ of customer benefits, which is unique in this form: the mobile system is easy to handle, saves space and is flexible in its uses.” The 3D wheel alignment system will be ready for series production and market ready in mid-2009.
