Haweka introduces Vamag aligner range
With a 15-year track record as a leader in laser wheel alignment for commercial vehicles, Haweka UK is frequently asked to supply wheel alignment systems for passenger cars. In January this year the company, which is also well known for its Haweka range of centring accessories for wheel balancing, began test marketing a 4-wheel 8CCD camera alignment system for cars and vans.
Haweka UK says the project “exceeded expectations” and the company is now partnering with Italian manufacturer Vamag to bring its wheel alignment systems to UK customers. Vamag srl is one of Europe’s leading suppliers of high quality car alignment systems and has manufactured garage equipment for over 30 years.
According to Haweka, it identified the need for equipment that offers a step up from laser technology and provides the customer with a printout of results. The Vamag 8-CCD equipment, the AM2003BT, fits the bill. And the garage equipment supplier adds that because it can be deployed in any location around the workshop, it does not tie up a lift for wheel alignment. The system has a 15,000-strong vehicle database; Haweka comments that it makes 4-wheel alignment quick, easy and accurate, within an affordable budget.
We are also able to incorporate some useful accessories from the Haweka range,” added Peter Spraggs, Haweka UK’s managing director. “For example, many workshops favour the famous Haweka Pro-Clamps, whose spring-loaded nylon feet are specifically designed to avoid scratches on alloy rims. We also offer the Haweka steering wheel level, a handy device to get the steering perfectly aligned before clamping it. Our mobile technicians are happy to demonstrate the Vamag kit anywhere in the country and offer professional training and back-up.”
