With more than 30 years of knowledge in the field of vehicle diagnostics, Hella Gutmann Solutions (HGS) provides the independent workshop with the repair solution to tackle virtually every service-related problem with its renowned mega macs range.
With the advanced technology of modern vehicles dictating the simplest of services and repairs, the independent garage needs capable diagnostic equipment to compete with main dealers. Service functions, such as oil depletion, electronic handbrake, condition based service, DPF regeneration and adaptive top-up are just a few functions once considered dealer-only operations. Add to this basic settings, adaptions and coding, which are required after replacing components, and the complexity of a modern vehicle is soon realised.
In addition, today’s vehicles house radar sensors and cameras connecting to advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), which also require calibration following any accident repair and many simple repairs. For example, recalibration is required after steering and suspension replacement and even something as comparatively trivial as an adjustment of the vehicle’s tracking.
HGS is a market leader in ADAS calibration, with the only multi-brand solution to this challenge, covering over 92 per cent of the UK and Ireland car parc. Head of Business Development for HGS UK, Neil Hilton explains why this equipment is going to be vital to independent workshops in the coming years: “With the already high level and complexity of vehicle technology increasing with every new model, keeping abreast with the latest developments and being equipped to find the answer and fix the problem is more difficult than ever, which is why, drawing on our reputation for quality and market experience, HGS has developed a range of state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment that can interrogate these vehicles quickly and accurately.
“Each of these devices also includes a unique HGS feature, which is the ability to calibrate camera/radar-based driver assist systems used with the latest ADAS technology.”
For the workshop, the tools offer a simple solution, without the need for extensive training and is one of the most in-depth, capable tools on the market today. Coupled with free technical support service, two years’ warranty and software with no time-out, it is easy to see why HGS is popular for diagnostic and ADAS calibration equipment.
Hella’s route to market is predominantly through wholesalers who are supported with a complete service solution. The HGS team will assist motor factors on product demonstrations and training, as well as marketing, trade days and website content to provide extra service downstream. The equipment is supplied ready to be delivered to the end-user with no intervention, removing the need for stock holding; therefore, end-user confidence in the diagnosis will result in more component sales and fewer returns.
