Two new aligners from Hofmann
Garage equipment manufacturer Hofmann has introduced the next generation of its Geoliner wheel aligner series. Two new models have been introduced, the Geoliner 670 Gen 4 and Geoliner 680 Gen4; both aligners feature Hofmann’s icon-based Pro 42 software, a ‘one-touch’ programme that is designed to make the most effective use of the information required by the technician carrying out the alignment procedure.
Both of the new Gen 4 3D wheel aligners feature HD cameras and new design compact wheel targets that enable accurate real-time alignment readings and diagnostic data to be produced in less than 90 seconds. In addition, the use of 3D modelling to determine each wheel’s position and diagnose chassis problems eliminates the risk of missing collision damage or mismatched tyres and wheels and allows chassis cradles and A-arms to be easily adjusted.
Hofmann points out that the Geoliner 670 Gen 4 and Geoliner 680 Gen4 are also fully equipped with complete and up-to-date OEM data for virtually every vehicle built over the past 25 years, enabling everything from a Smart car to a long-wheelbase van to be accurately diagnosed and aligned. Other standard features include versatile wheel clamps incorporating industry-proven grips to provide secure attachment of the target to each wheel. The patented target positioning procedure covers a wide range of vehicle types without hardware changes and no additional adapters are needed to measure vehicles with custom wheels and tyres. Both machines are also supplied with a 19-inch TFT wide screen monitor, a Windows 7 PC and a colour printer.
All Hofmann wheel aligners are supplied with installation, operator training and a two-year warranty as standard.
