Successful Alignment Install - Edgefield coachworks (Edinburgh)
Edgefield Coachworks is an award winning body repair centre in Edinburgh. They wanted to add a flexible, precise alignment system to their busy business and Hofmann Megaplan duly obliged with an Ecoline 88 4 wheel alignment system.
CCD or 4 wheel alignment systems, are a popular mobile system consisting of sensors mounted to each wheel. CCD aligner communicates with a PC via Bluetooth and compares the results to a database. The results are easy to see and once the alignment is complete a print off the data can be produced for you customers benefit. They require little specialist knowledge from the workshop as the interaction with the PC talks the technician through the process.
- More accurate than lasers
- Less alignment knowledge is required for the technician than laser
- Mobile so you can switch bays with a single aligner
Need to know:
- Results can take as long as 10 minutes
- An update to the data is required when new cars come onto the market
- Busy centres can monopolise the aligners time
In short if you’re a small / medium sized set up, with multiple technicians with varying abilities, CCD has its benefits. The system automatically instructs the operator through the adjustments and gives feedback to the customer to build your relationship. They are mobile too, so allows flexible working throughout the workshop.
