Are you considering an alignment upgrade?

By autotech-nath on November 29, 2023

Straightset says workshops should consider upgrading their wheel alignment system to 3D technology – coupled with a suitable lift, this will carry out a swift and accurate assessment of a vehicle’s toe, camber and caster measurements. It will also carry out an initial body dimension check – a great indication of potential body damage.

The company supplies the Beissbarth range of equipment and advises that the Q.Lign, pictured, is one of the most compact web-based 3D systems that features a comprehensive database of OEM alignment data for a range of all makes and models of vehicles up to a 5m wheelbase.

The system guides the user through the entire process and presents the measurements on an Android tablet, this can also be accessed on a phone or laptop. These values are compared with the latest OEM data before an adjustment report is generated, which can be printed off or emailed to the customer. Once adjustments have been made, a quick caster sweep is performed with the steering wheel returned to the straight-ahead position to generate the after- adjustment report alongside the initial figures.
