System automates time-consuming alignment while saving space
PowerBay express alignment system delivers precise, high-speed alignment while using a minimum amount of shop space. Features HS401 HawkEye high-definition digital imaging sensors, which use high-resolution digital cameras to deliver measurements in less than 3 minutes. PowerSlide system communicates directly with alignment console to lock and unlock turnplates and slipplates automatically, as needed, through alignment process—without any input from technician. Inflation Station automatically sets tire pressure for each wheel simultaneously; technician simply sets recommended tire pressure at console and attaches an air hose mounted to the lift at each wheel. High-resolution digital imaging cameras and high-definition wheel targets of HawkEye sensors offer an enhanced field of view, reducing distance requirement from front turnplates to front bay wall to secure accurate alignment readings. Capability allows system to be installed in a smaller bay space and perform alignments at almost any lift height without compromising camera’s ability to monitor the targets. Included flush-mount RX scissor lift offers ample lifting capacity with a small footprint, and shallow-pit installation eliminates need for long approach ramps. Hunter Engineering Co., Bridgeton, Mo.
