Rotary introduced a full line of wheel alignment equipment at the SEMA Show that’s fast, accurate and easy to operate, plus has no minimum bay size requirements and can be used anywhere in the shop.
“Rotary has eliminated the restrictions that come with a lot of alignment equipment,” says Rob Dabrowski, vice president of wheel service equipment for Rotary parent company Vehicle Service Group. “We’ve done away with the need for a huge tower installed at the front of an alignment bay, which frees up workspace. At the same time, we’ve made our equipment really easy to use because you shouldn’t feel like you need an advanced degree to run a simple alignment machine.”
Rotary wheel alignment systems include the R1080 Baysaver 3D, R1070 CCD Pro and R1060 CCD Shop. All three are completely mobile and can be used with any alignment lift, including Rotary’s new XA14 alignment scissor lift, Y-Lift vertical rise platform lift or AR Series four-post lifts, including Shockwave-equipped models.
Each portable aligner console can be positioned anywhere for ultimate convenience. Data is transmitted wirelessly directly from the measuring heads to each other and the control unit.
The R1080 Baysaver 3D high-performance wheel aligner provides automatic camera positioning and target recognition. It comes with self-centering three-point, quick-locking tire clamps. It can provide an alignment reading in as little as eight seconds and works at any height.
The R1070 CCD Pro displays programs and data in easy-to-use 3D graphics that guide the technician through the measuring process step by step. The mobile control unit cabinet contains a powerful PC, printer and monitor, as well as special supports to store and recharge the measuring heads.
The R1060 CCD Shop controls all the characteristic angles of both axles using four measuring heads with eight CCD sensors. The mobile control unit cart provides convenient storage for the computer, printer, monitor, battery charger, clamps and accessories.
