The letters of Alignment - Royal Mail fleet (Aberdeen)
With the Royal Mail having thousands of vehicles out on the road, delivering mail to millions of homes, it is unsurprising that their vehicles clock up considerable mileage. As running costs make up a significant percentage of overheads and having badly aligned vehicles can only escalate this issue further.
With this in mind Royal Mail fleet Aberdeen have taken delivery of their Hofmann Megaplan megaline System 4 laser alignment system. It comes in two options, either wall mounted or on a trolley. At Hofmann Megaplan have many alignment options available, from the very feature driven 3D aligners to this, the most basic laser alignment system. Whilst the system lacks the computerised assistance found on more modern CCD and 3D aligners having a high quality machine and some - but not quality.
Laser alignment was first commercialised in the 1990s, laser wheel alignment is you basic form of alignment. Systems consist of a pair of targets or ‘flags’ mounted to one axle and a pair of laser heads mounted to the other wheels.
