Case Study: ProTyre Abingdon

The latest premium garage equipment install from our expert engineers was at the Abingdon branch of ProTyre where they received a welcome upgrade to their tyre fitting equipment.

This ProTyre shop prides itself on exceptional levels of customer service and so premium garage equipment to help offer this is a must. Specialising in mechanical repair such as vehicle servicing and MoTs sees the tyre machinery in regular use. That's before you consider the fitting part of the business which covers cars, vans, 4x4s and agricultural vehicles.

With premium brand wheels on offer including Michelin, Pirelli, Bridgestone and Continental, a top of the range equipment line up was a must.

Enter the megaspin 820P Wheel Balancer. With the ability to provide live recommended actions on screen using a colour TFT display for further visual representation, this machine takes balancing to a new level.

Whilst ensuring their new megaspin 820P Wheel Balancer was installed efficiently and with no hitches, our engineers were also able to introduce the One Weight Balance technology. This enables our tyre changes to balance a wheel using just one weight (not just a static balance either).

The branch also had a megamount 713XL Tyre Changer to compliment this advanced new balancer.

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.

Case Study: Kam Servicing

Megamount 603 tyre changer and Megaspin 420 wheel balancer installed recently at Kam Servicing in Heanor
A spot of ingenuity from our engineers at this recent install in Kam Servicing in Heanor.

There was a limited amount of space to work with, but we successfully managed to install a Megamount 603 tyre changer and a Megaspin 420 wheel balancer. The main concern was making sure they didn't get in the way of the doors or each other, and we managed to create the perfect fit. Both machines are able to operate seamlessly in tandem without disruption to the other. 

The above image shows how we were able to make the most of space we had for the install whilst minimising the tyre equipment's overall footprint in the workshop.

Case Study: Training 2000 Blackburn

Alignment Solution + Lift for UClan FacilityEnter heading here...

Training 2000 has been established for over 50 years and is a large Group Training Association offering business solutions, commercial courses and Apprenticeship programmes across multiple industry sectors.

In 2017, Training 2000 became part of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) meaning that their apprentices have a direct route to a Degree Apprenticeship.

Speaking to Hofmann Megaplan after the installation representatives from the association said they went for the Hofmann Megaplan Ssence HD because of its simplicity and its ease of use for the students. The entire team couldn't wait to get stuck in and start aligning vehicles.

Steve from Training 2000 added "The simple to use software has all the tools needed for an organisation like us. The print out reports and saved data comes in good use when students want to track their progress throughout the terms."

Commenting on the alignment engineer for Hofmann Megaplan, Steve added: "Chris Jones was very helpful and provided excellent on-site training."

See the full gallery of the install including Ssence HD and Alignment Geolift below.
