At this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Hunter Engineering Company showcased the benefits of in-house collision repair alignments.
With live demonstrations on site, Hunter representatives showed that by performing collision repair alignments in-house, shops can increase profits, improve the quality and accuracy of repairs as well as maintain factory alignments, as well as eliminate unnecessary transport and waiting, improving efficiency and lowering cycle times.
Compatible with most frame racks on the market, Hunter’s turnplate kit features four turnplates, ramps, wheel chocks and a wheeled cart that provides easy mobility and compact storage. The portable kit can be used with two-post lifts or on a flat floor; enabling shops to align vehicles that may be too large or long to fit existing alignment lifts.
In addition, service providers can perform Suspension Body Dimension Audits to identify components affected in an accident, including axle setback and offset, wheelbase, tread width, ride height, max steer, symmetry and more.
Hunter’s sophisticated WinAlign software offers more than 400 videos and animations covering all aspects of wheel alignment today, providing step-by-step instructions on how to make alignment corrections and illustrate the causes of problems.
