Innovative products need a website that reflects the advanced technology of those products.

With that in mind, John Bean has redesigned its website to make it easier to locate more in-depth information so customers can make informed decisions about which of the John Bean wheel service products are best for their shop locations.

“Our main objective in the redesign process was to produce a resource that would be more valuable, user-centric and responsive on all platforms and devices. We concentrated specifically on making the website easier for visitors to understand and find useful information about our solutions,” said Mariana Montovaneli, Director of Marketing for John Bean. “Before we got started, we asked customers how we could best enhance the John Bean website experience. We have incorporated many of their suggestions for a more robust and thorough site.”

Easy navigation

Streamlined for easy navigation, the newly updated website features detailed information about the complete John Bean product line, including ADAS calibration, wheel aligners and balancers, tire changers and lifts. In addition, each product section includes specific information such as technology enhancements, benefits of the products and frequently asked questions (FAQs) to help customers make sure they are purchasing the right product for their specific shop size.

Another notable feature of the new website is a series of videos that demonstrate how each of the products operates and how they improve shop efficiency and productivity. There are more training options for John Bean customers, and the website also makes it easier to locate a John Bean sales representative to answer questions or help with an order.

“The new look and feel of the website match the innovation of John Bean products, and the improved functionality reflects their efficiency and productivity enhancements,” said Montovaneli. “We encourage shop managers to visit the new site to see how John Bean can help grow their businesses.”

New technology available

New 360-view camera calibrations is now available for the John Bean Tru-Point ADAS Calibration System. This will allow vehicle calibrations to be completed more quickly and easily.

“ADAS calibration is not an area to cut corners. By staying true to the commitment made for Tru-Point, the John Bean engineering group has released an innovative software update that is made available with the use of the TGT-05 kit,” said Jordan Krebs, Product Manager for John Bean. “With the new procedures available starting with the 1.6.0 software update, Tru-Point now has 360-view camera calibrations that do not require the use of lasers, tape measures, plumb-bobs, or drawing on the floor, simultaneously making the process more streamlined and comprehensive.”

Easy to calibrate

John Bean customers can use the TGT-05 kit to easily calibrate the 360 cameras for a variety of manufacturers including Audi, Bentley, Ford, Lamborghini and Volkswagen. The kit attaches to opposing corners of the 360 mats on either side of the vehicle and serves as a reference point for the Tru-Point cameras to ensure the actual mats are straight, square and properly aligned to the vehicle’s cameras before beginning calibrations.

The TGT-05 kit contains four BKT-15 brackets and corner reflectors to attach to the corners of one pair of 360 mats. These brackets can be moved from mat to mat. Customers can purchase additional BKT-15 brackets to permanently attach to any additional mats they may have for other manufacturers.

A one-stop solution for ADAS calibration, Tru-Point uses highly accurate advanced camera technology, targets and top-of-the-line software to quickly uncover any vehicle alignment issues so users can perform an accurate ADAS calibration.

“Expanding coverage for automated placement is at the forefront of the evolution of Tru-Point, so we recommend our customers keep an eye out for exciting new hardware and procedural updates we will be introducing to further expand their capabilities,” concluded Krebs.
