Hunter Adds Diagnostic Connectivity With Latest WinAlign Software

Posted on August 13, 2019

In conjunction with the latest update to WinAlign software, Hunter Engineering Co. has begun shipping the next generation of its Quick Tread Edge drive-over tread depth measuring tool.

Hunter says Quick Tread Edge enables service providers to maximize tire sales and provide customers with informative, in-depth inspection results. Quick Tread Edge can only be used with WinAlign 16.1.

Paired with Quick Check Drive, Hunter’s touchless alignment inspection system, automatic alignment and tire readings are captured in seconds. The system can cycle passenger-car vehicles through every 3-5 seconds, according to Hunter.

In addition to supporting shops using Quick Tread Edge, WinAlign 16.1 enables shops to integrate a Hunter aligner with the Autel MaxiSys ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance System) Aftermarket Calibration kit to speed ADAS calibrations.

Hunter says the integration reduces time to position an aftermarket ADAS fixture by 50% or more. The Hunter/Autel integration is only possible with WinAlign 16.1
