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.”
Garage equipment brand Hunter’s UK distributor has launched a new wheel aligner targeting workshops “starting out” in the provision of the service. Pro-Align says the new entry-level Hunter PA200 will allow more tyre shops to “enjoy the financial, efficiency and customer service benefits that result from ownership of a Hunter wheel alignment system.” The PA200 features a two-camera system and uses the same imaging technology found on the company’s popular, range-topping Elite TD system.
