How do you know which wheel alignment machine is the best? Is it the technology? The durability of the machine? Or maybe it is a combination of everything? Not only do we have the answer but we worked out how to make the best better!

The megaline Ssence ULTRA combines a 3D/HD alignment system with integrated handheld tread depth scanner. By marrying these two devices we are able to provide the ultimate in wheel alignment services. Continuously providing high quality garage equipment is standard for Hofmann Megaplan. It is shown brilliantly in the robust and ergonomically designed unit which enhances productivity and your ability to deliver alignment and tyre services.

What is so different about the megaline Ssence ULTRA?

The ULTRA sets a totally new standard in wheel alignment, by introducing the revolutionary new TreadReader technology!

Winter Wheel Alignment System Tips

A quick one this month on the havoc cold weather can wreak when it comes to your wheel alignment system!

Keep your Turn Plates Turning, no matter the weather...

 The severity of weather makes a massive difference of course but cold weather normally means more ice on the road. As such we see more salt, dirt and sometimes even sludge on the roads. All of this will collect within the wheel arches of vehicles and it can easily fall onto your turn plates. This will result in corrosion of the turn plates and their useful lifespan being decreased. Did you know a very fine spray of lubricant daily can save your turn plates from corroding? A small cost to make a big saving long term.

Caster Swings + the cold = A MUST! 

​Don't forget your caster swings, especially in the cold!

Most machines are able to bypass doing a caster swing and so this may not be a check you think to regularly complete. However, this could mean you are missing out on service up sales from damage more commonly caused during the winter months. 

Hitting the kerb at any speed can have a noticeable effect on alignment but many don't realise the unseen damage that happens. We commonly see bent wishbones in the winter months from cases where a customer has skidded on ice and had an impact with the kerb. 

Not doing your caster swing check could mean you are missing out on replacing bent wishbones. Your customers will thank you as they drive away safer!

Infrared Interruption 

Most modern computer wheel alignment machines use infrared technology. That includes 3D and CCD alignment machines. 

We always receive, without fail, several callouts over the winter periods where erratic readings or blocked beams have been reported on these systems. The issue is often quite an obscure one. 

We've found that many garages are now starting to use infrared heaters to keep their workshops warm in the winter. The issue? Unfortunately, these heaters are polluting the space with infrared rays. It is an easy problem to overcome though. The solution is to simply not to shine the heaters near the wheel aligners whilst in use.

Keep warm and keep aligning with the accuracy these machines are built to offer! 

Your winter alignment woes?

​Have you got any other winter alignment woes or tips to overcoming issues thrown up by the cold weather? Let us know now. Our engineers are always on hand to help. Call 01480 8-9-10-11 today and arrange to speak to a member of the alignment team.

Hofmann Megaplan is consistently working hard to ensure the customer service we offer exceeds the expectations of those purchasing our machines. A big part of this is training, and who better to train our team than the individuals manufacturing the product?

Still operated by the Cascos family, the same passion and pride goes into every lift they manufacture, from scissor lifts to 4 post ATL/MOT Servicing lifts. It is the way that the company has operated since it was established in 1965.

As chosen UK distributors of Cascos Lifts, Hofmann Megaplan takes its responsibility very seriously in ensuring this incredible product is handled correctly after making its journey to the UK.

Bewildered by MOT Classifications? A Beginners Guide to MOT Bay Classes

There are a number of different pieces of equipment that make up an MOT Bay and understanding what is needed for classification can be a bit of a head spinner!

Here at Hofmann Megaplan, we pride ourselves on our MoT Bay knowledge and experience, having been a leading supplier of garage and MOT equipment since 1931.

Our specialist division for handling automotive testing equipment within the workshop, works to ensure you have the right equipment in your garage and to make sure your ATL MOT workshop operations run efficiently with little interruptions. They have put together the below quick beginners guide to understanding the different Class bay's when it comes to ATL/MOT.

Read more on our service lead MOT Bay installations here!

Class 1 & 2 ATL MOT Bays

Many garages are unaware that their existing ATL MOT bay can be modified to cater for Class 1 & 2 vehicles, however having a specific Class 1 & 2 ATL MOT Bay can be highly beneficial to the efficiency of testing certain vehicles including:

  • Motorbikes
  • Scooters
  • Mopeds
  • Motorcycle Combinations (e.g. sidecar)


More often than not getting a Class 1 & 2 bay is a no brainer. By contacting our knowledgeable team we can provide specialist insight into achieving this.

Class 4 ATL MOT Bays

As your standard passenger car is the most popular form of transportation, it is of no surprise that Class 4 ATL MOT Bays are the go to when investing in MOT testing equipment. Due to the workload these bays see there is a need for them to be more robust and durable than ever.

Equipping your garage with the right Class 4 MOT bay can be a struggle though, as they can come in all shapes and sizes. By delivering our comprehensive analysis and design bespoke to your workshop, we can offer and advise on the best solution for your space and services. This peace of mind approach is imperative and ensures your bay is right and ready to start making you money ASAP!

Class 7 ATL MOT Bays

With heavy duty vehicles comes larger MOT testing equipment! Where the opportunity to get business from light commercial and heavy commercial machinery testing presents itself, you are going to need specialised Class 7 ATL MOT Bays and equipment to deal with the enormity of each task.

For dealing with the sheer weight and size of the vehicles, you will need a lot of space and very robust equipment. The need to plan well and get thing right first time is key, else a simple project could end up costing you more than needed. 

​If you need to draw on ​our expertise and advice for your MOT equipment, contact us online now or call us today on 01480 8-9-10-11 to speak with one of our MOT Station specialists.

Case Study: Ecoline 88 installed in Paris

Hofmann Megaplan are proud to supply wheel alignment equipment not just in the UK but also across Europe!

The above image shows one of our most recent installs of an Ecoline 88. This machine was installed in an accident repair centre Paris, France. 

The Ecoline 88 is one of the most popular wheel aligner models ever sold by Hofmann Megaplan, not least because it includes some luxury additional features whilst keeping its overall cost down compared to similar machines.  

Owners of this machine will enjoy the ease of use when attaching the 3-point 'GrabClamps', the heavy-duty mechanical turnplates and the advanced measuring heads that come as standard, making full 4 wheel alignment a walk in the park.

The 'GrabClamps' alone makes this aligner worth the investment. The measuring head is mounted to the wheel using sprung-loaded 'arms' that grab the tyre, and 3 nylon locators on the rim. This ensures there is no metal to metal contact and thus no damaged rims.

Whichever geographical market you are looking to purchase your new garage equipment for, you can contact our team today online and a member of the appropriate department will be in contact to help with your new purchase.

Cascos Continues Innovation & Introduces New Elite Colours for 2019

New for 2019, Cascos have introduced a stunning new colour scheme in their ever popular range of vehicle lifts!

Here at Hofmann Megaplan we partner with Cascos Lifts to provide the ultimate ATL MOT range, and are proud to present the launch of the new graphite colour scheme for the 'Elite' brand line.

As always, Cascos continue to supply in the Platinum colour scheme or indeed any other corporate colour schemes upon request.

Continuing Innovation

​Cascos have recently carried out an audit of all their materials and component suppliers in order to ensure full traceability of their origin and quality. As a result, the company can have absolute faith in the product they supply and this has resulted in the ability to support a class-leading 5 year warranty.

James Boon, EVP of Garage Equipment commenting on Cascos Lifts:

"It's a well recognised fact that, although you may pay more for the Cascos brand vs. a cheap vehicle lift from the Far East, the Cascos will be by far the cheaper buy in the long term, simply because of the length of life and cost of ownership along the way."

"We still get calls to service Cascos lifts that are 30 years old, which is testament to the build quality and justifies completely the initial outlay."

As the Chinese garage equipment market grows increasingly stronger and popular, Cascos continue to develop high quality and durable products that are able to withstand the test of time. The focus is on customers who place quality and longevity as the most important assets, leading to long term cost savings and efficiencies.

Interested in our Cascos range?

The Wheel Alignment Blog | 3 New Years Alignment Resolutions to make this year

Alignment is an ever evolving practice with technology meaning constant innovation. Making sure all the wheels point in the right direction is only the start now!

With so much changing in the world of wheel alignment systems and technology constantly making for new capabilities of our alignment machines, there are more services then ever before to offer and thus more revenue potential for your garage.

Here are our top 3 areas to watch out for in 2019 when it comes to your alignment system: 

Keep it Calibrated in 2019!

So often we get phone calls from customers complaining of issues with there aligner. Turns out the machine hasn't been calibrated in 2 years. Worst case I've seen machines go 3 years + without a calibration.

Hofmann Megaplan recommend calibrating Laser alignment systems every year while Computer machines should be calibrated every 6 months. This is simply because there are more measurements and to keep that extremely high level of accuracy the machine needs this regular check up.

Whilst we're there, using the latest software and database is essential. Failure to do so can mean not having the latest vehicle information and may lead to lost sales.

And voila you now have the latest machine out there.

ADAS Calibration Equipment - it's a no brainer!

 

ADAS (or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are a common occurrence on modern vehicles, designed to remove the scope for human error when driving. Of course if these have not been calibrated correctly the vehicle may not know which way is forward to begin with.

These cameras need to be calibrated. In fact any time you have work done on an area that houses a ADAS sensor, it should be recalibrated! Given that as a garage you are likely to work on one of these areas of the car, upgrading your aligner to include ADAS Calibration Systems could be a no brainer

Find out more about ADAS Calibration systems here

Selling Alignment in 2019 just got easier

Technology can even help you sell alignment service to your customers this year. Devices like TreadReader give you a hand held tread depth scanner that can be quickly rolled over all 4 tyres of a vehicle. From there a simple report is produced giving the customer information of the condition of tyres, alignment and key performance indicators like increase in stopping distance. These reports are hard to ignore and could save a drivers life where they otherwise may have carried on with unsafe tyres.

You can even use the TreadReader to build your business pipeline. A visitor to your garage might not need new tyres now but the information the TreadReader provides you with means you'll know when they will.

ADAS Diagnostics Explained

Everything in today's world is becoming more technologically advanced including vehicles. The standard inbuilt systems are becoming more intelligent meaning maintenance and servicing requires new knowledge and kit.

Here at Hofmann Megaplan, we are making sure the garage equipment we offer is up to date with the latest capabilities. This also means up to our industry-leading standards. The latest of these advancements that is becoming more common on the road is ADAS Systems. You could be dealing with vehicles already that have ADAS as standard but are you ready for ADAS calibration

Types of ADAS 

ADAS means vehicles are now more intelligent then ever before. They collect and use data in new ways to keep drivers safe. These uses include but are not limited to:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Adaptive High Beams
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Collision Warning/ Detection System
  • Driver Monitoring (Drowsiness Detection)
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Night Vision
  • Pedestrian Detection
  • Parking Assist (Rear View Cameras)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition

Vehicles fitted with ADAS technology will have cameras mounted centrally on the windscreen. This means when a windscreen is replaced, the ADAS will require re-calibration to ensure all systems are working correctly. Advanced ADAS systems can also include cameras and sensors in the front and rear bumpers and wing mirrors for full 360 degree applications. the number of scenarios where work is completed that requires recalibration of these systems is endless and failing to do so can result in customers leaving your garage in danger.

Keeping up to date with ADAS

The team at Hofmann Megaplan regularly undergo training on the latest systems including most recently an ADAS training day at our showroom. Technology is constantly changing our industry and we place an extremely high value on investing in our people to ensure they continue providing above and beyond service backed up by their knowledge.

We make sure all of our engineers and sales team have the exact understanding needed to deal with your garages specific requirements, from picking out the right equipment to training you up on its use.

Need to upgrade your alignment system to feature ADAS calibration? Check out ADAS calibration systems on our website today and contact us online now or call us today on 01480 891011 to find out if your system is compatible with ADAS Diagnostic and calibration systems.

Does your garage need an alignment salesman?

Look no further than the Hofmann Megaplan TreadReader, capable of diagnosing misalignment and tyre wear condition in a way that informs customers and increases service sales.

This hand-held alignment technology provides an instant visual health check and promises to boost the sales of your alignment services.

James Boon, EVP of Garage Equipment on the TreadReader

"There is something about human nature that makes many of us naturally suspicious when someone tells you that you have to spend money! However, the TreadReader presents the customer with a very real appraisal of their tyres, in a color-coded and numbered format which is easy to understand, on a report that simply can't be argued with. It removes any doubt or apprehension in its entirety."

The unit itself is lightweight, robust (the company claims it has the same characteristics of the well-known brand hammer Drill) meaning it can withstand the volume use of a heavy-handed technician and requires just a few seconds to run over all 4 tyres for instant upload to a smartphone or tablet via the TreadReader App, which can then be converted into a hard printout or emailable document.

The TreadReader is the device taking the tyre and alignment industry by storm with its ability to inform customers in a clear and concise manner of the dangers their vehicle might be putting them in. The added bonus? A boost in business for garages that might otherwise have been missed out on. 

For more information on this innovative technology, take a look at the TreadReader on our website now.
