Techplus launches John Bean V1200 Elite Imaging wheel alignment system

Garage equipment specialists Techplus has launched the John Bean V1200 Elite Imaging wheel alignment system to its ever-growing product portfolio.With no moving parts, new alignment software that’s easy to learn and use, and a robust, compact design, the V1200 Elite Wheel Alignment System requires minimal space and none at all in the front of the lift. It’s built to work with any alignment lift style and enhance performance in just about any shop.

Rolling run-out compensation means no more hassles: just mount and roll to measure, with no lifting, no head-charging, no head-leveling and no adapters. Place the V1200 Elite on the lift and it’s ready to align.

Repairable on-site and boasting remote service and automatic software and specification updates, the V1200 Elite means more revenue for your business, with no more calibrating, no more cables and no more worries.
The V1200 Elite’s next-generation aligner software features a notification system that provides critical information without slowing down the alignment process, with an adaptive user interface that delivers instant access to productivity tools and assistance whenever required.

Using advanced XD cameras and sophisticated monitoring algorithms, the V1200 Elite Wheel Alignment System detects issues with suspension stress and errors from lift clamps, environment, and more. To save time and ensure accuracy on every alignment, users are notified only when necessary — with additional information never more than one click away.

Each rear wheel pod uses two cameras to image a front wheel target and a reference pod mounted at the front of the car, allowing a clear view of all targets through full rotation. The left-side reference pod then uses its camera to create a full 3-D alignment without obstructions from low hanging vehicle components.

Reference pods work easily with either a lift or a pit, allowing for flexibility in installation and placement so they don’t interfere with normal work flow. (Typical mounting is at the front edge of the lift surface on the outer edge of the runway.) And since all communication within the V1200 Elite happens wirelessly, you never have to worry about beams and cables taking up valuable space in the shop.
