Pinnacle Automotive Systems is proud to present the next generation Jumbo 3D Heavy Truck Aligner (J3DHDA) with the ability to align six axles simultaneously in under three minutes, which can also include two steer axles. Imaging technology enables you to accurately and efficiently align a tractor and trailer up to 62-ft. in length. Other new features include drawbar gauge, drive through, bushing calculator, steering lock, frame-based axle alignment and frame reference input.
The Drawbar Gauge feature aligns a full trailer fitted with a swiveling tow bar at the front. The drawbar gauge fixed on the tow bar will align all the axles parallel to it.
Drive Through is an upgradable feature designed for fleet applications. This new add-on feature takes vertical camera columns and spaces them out to four meters; this allows the vehicle to pass through in between them and enables the technician to drive straight out instead of backing the vehicle out, improving shop flow.
Bushing Calculator enables the Jumbo 3D to make adjustments on the wheel in free mode. The software system guides the technician to position the cam in the right direction.
Steering Lock is another new safety feature that locks the steering wheel against the floor instead of the driver seat. It is mandatory to lock the steering wheel while performing the roll-on runout compensation. Trucks designed with seat memory settings and automatic pre-adjustment seat positions will fail to hold the standard steering lock due to the seat resets.
Frame-Based Axle Alignment is now easier to use; before this feature, technicians could only align the wheels, now they can align the frame. Before this feature, technicians had to rely on inaccurate measurement techniques using a standard tape measure that identified the gap distance between the tire and the chassis. No longer will technicians have to assume accuracy with the frame-based axle alignment feature.
The J3DHDA has all of these features and benefits at an economical price point delivering accuracy at an affordable price.
