Wheel alignment equipment supplier Supertracker has introduced a new six-sensor aligner, the STR130RW. The versatile aligner is capable of carrying out checks virtually anywhere in the workshop; it can be operated on a full wheel alignment lift, a standard four post lift, a two post lift, and on a level surface.
Supertracker has appointed Tom Lovesy as its general manager. The son of managing director, Trevor Lovesy, and grandson of original founder Keith Lovesy, Tom’s appointment shows the continuity of the wheel alignment specialist’s ownership. The company is preparing to enter its third generation of family management as one of the leading wheel alignment specialists in the UK market.
Having spent the past thirty years improving its position in the UK alignment market, Southampton-based Supertracker continues to introduce new innovations into its product range and 2018 will follow the same creative path. At the moment, ADAS systems are grabbing industry headlines.
Southampton based Supertracker, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of wheel alignment equipment, has launched Shoot & Go, an automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system designed to obtain technical Wheel Alignment data. Now available to order on the STR600 and STR120B aligners, Shoot & Go uses a digital camera installed in front of the lift, ramp or pit, to detect the number plate of the vehicle in service.
Southampton wheel alignment equipment supplier Supertracker will expand its product range in the early part of 2017 to include a new model for the agricultural market. Final tests have recently been completed on the laser-based four-wheel aligner, which Supertracker says will guarantee accurate results alongside ease of use. Modern tractors’ ability to travel at speeds of up to forty miles an hour have led some established and potential Supertracker customers to enquire about wheel aligners for agricultural vehicles, which the company states will open up a new avenue of sales opportunity.
Supertracker will introduce its first 3D wheel aligner in October. The company is marking its 30th year of successful trading with this new landmark. Managing director Trevor Lovesy says: “Over the past couple of years we have experimented with the new concept of 3D alignment and concluded that the crucifix style systems have a definite limitation in terms of space, flexibility and accuracy. However we have now introduced the STR600 3D wheel aligner that completely eliminates these problems as we have moved the camera location to the lift which eliminates the need to move a vehicle backward and forward to obtain readings.”
As one of the UK’s leading specialists in wheel alignment, Southampton-based Supertracker says it strives to give its customers exactly what they are looking for. The wheel aligners offered by Supertracker are the result of listening to customers’ individual requirements, it says, of which the two most important are easy operation and the best profit margins for its alignment equipment. Supertracker has been producing British built wheel aligners for the past 28 years, offering a varied selection of alignment products. They range from two-wheel tracking gauges right through to top of the range computer aligners which can be used anywhere within a vehicle workshop area.
The organiser of Brityrex International 2014, SingEx-ECI International, said that it will seek to take the show “to the next level” following feedback from the 2014 edition of the show. A foundation for increased success has been laid by an expanded programme of informative and engaging discussions in the form of TyreTalk seminars, enhanced product variety, numerous product launches and first time appearances at a UK tradeshow, the organiser said.
Southampton based wheel alignment equipment specialist Supertracker has recently added a brand new product to its product portfolio, while continuing to provide a high standard of customer training. While the new, “bridge model” STR210R model was initially previewed at the Commercial Vehicle Show in April, its introduction came into the second half of 2013, and […]
Supertracker has given wheel alignment support to West Midlands father and son driving team, Keith and Dylan Evans and their Subaru Legacy Estate in the annual Help4Heroes 4×4 European Rally 2013. The team was awarded Total Off-Road Magazine’s 'Best Non Land Rover performance', having been primed by Supertracker, which set up and adjusted the wheel alignment and sourced special Landsail tyres for the 14-day trip across a number of European countries, visiting numerous battle locations and memorial sites from WW1 and WW2.
Supertracker reports that a growing number of tyre retailers are using the company's concepts to tailor their own in-house training sessions. UK sales manager and principal engineer Jerry Barker was recently invited to sit in on a specialised advanced wheel alignment course by one of the UK's leading tyre and automotive retailers.
Wheel alignment specialist Supertracker has unveiled the prototype of its new STR210R aligner. The fully computerised laser wheel aligner will be introduced into the market in the near future, and was on display at the CV Show 2013 for inspection and discussion with a member of Supertracker's national sales team.
Over the past twenty five years, Southampton based Supertracker has built up a reputation as one of the UK's leading wheel alignment specialists, and although the company has never expanded into Continental Europe it does have a rather unusual and successful association with Africa.
Supertracker has been present as an exhibitor at Brityrex for a number of years now and this year – the Southampton-based firm’s 25th anniversary year – will be no different. Supertracker says it believes Brityrex to be an important stage for the company to further establish its presence in the UK as one of the most progressive and successful alignment experts in the market. Managing director Trevor Lovesy views Brityrex 2012 as representing a perfect opportunity to meet up with the company's growing customer base and look towards opening additional business opportunities with potential new customers.
