Hunter introduces faster heavy-duty alignments
Hunter Engineering Co. has introduced its next-generation Winalign HD Alignment System, which provides accurate, three-axle wheel alignment readings in four minutes versus approximately 12 minutes for its previous aligner.
The company says the improved Winalign HD Alignment System uses four or six DSP700T heavy-duty alignment sensors.
DSP700T sensors use exclusive roll-forward compensation to compensate all sensors at once without the need to jack each axle. The new system decreases setup time and equipment wear through a completely reengineered setup process.
DSP700T sensors are cordless and are compensated at the same time by Hunter’s unique pusher. Hunter's DSP700T sensors are accurate to a range of 600 inches (1,524 centimeters) to cover all truck, bus and trailer lengths, according to the company.
When equipped with the timesaving capabilities of Hunter's optional Fully Integrated Alignment Turnplate Kit (FIA), the system produces full vehicle measurements in as little as four minutes.
Hunter says each sensor is protected by a lightweight, durable and rubberized shell. The self-centering wheel adaptors offer high-versatility for trucks and buses, which often have low- hanging bumpers or air dams, and fit steel and aluminum wheels ranging from 15 to 28 inches (38 to 71 centimeters) in diameter.
The new software allows trailers to be aligned without unhooking the power unit. The system can also align trailers without a power unit using an optional kingpin adaptor.
