This year’s Automechanika Birmingham is set to be an “essential” event for workshops of all sizes, thanks to a host of exciting new workshop systems and concepts being unveiled by leading wheel equipment specialist Pro-Align.
For smaller independent workshops or those operating on restricted budgets, Pro-Align will unveil its new Essentials Range which includes wheel alignment systems, tyre changers, a wheel alignment lift and wheel balancer. Alongside these, Pro-Align will demonstrate its new entry-level Hunter TCX45 tyre changer and the new Hunter SmartWeight Pro wheel balancing system.
Meanwhile, for more extensive workshops with a higher throughput of vehicles, Pro-Align will present two brand new innovative systems that can help workshops maximise their alignment bay revenue and inflate their tyre sales.
The Hunter Quick Check Drive is a new ‘touchless’ drive through alignment inspection system featuring 32 lasers and eight cameras which deliver total toe and individual alignment readings without the need for the vehicle to stop, any data input or technician intervention.
The final ground-breaking system being introduced by Pro-Align is the new Hunter Quick Tread Edge automatic drive-over tread depth reading system. The wholly Hunter manufactured Quick Tread Edge is a first for the aftermarket, measuring a more significant section of the tyre than ever before. Still, additionally, the valuable edge wears too, a highly susceptible area of the tyre.
“We’re extremely excited to present such a wide range of brand new systems and concepts at this year’s Automechanika Birmingham that can help boost the fortunes of workshops both large and small,” comments Paul Beaurain, managing director, Pro-Align. “Some businesses remain hesitant about investing large sums of money, so for them, the Hunter Essentials range is an ideal introduction as to what Pro-Align and Hunter can offer them and their business.
Meanwhile, for those with a more forward-thinking outlook, the new advanced Hunter systems provide an excellent opportunity to grow their business by expanding their service offering, improve efficiencies and conversion rates while also enhancing customer service and ultimately their reputation.”
In addition to the host of equipment on display, Pro-Align will also be running a unique live competition from its stand which will showcase the sheer number of alignment and tyre replacement opportunities that can be generated by just one dealer.
