Bee Line debuts new alignment system
This 4-head alignment system comes complete with all the equipment needed to accurately and efficiently align passenger cars and light trucks, as well as longer vehicles such as transit buses, commercial trucks and RV’s. Plus by adding the proven Bee Line tandem aligner and using just two of the alignment heads, centerline frame-reference alignment can be performed on heavy-duty trucks, the company says.
The four alignment heads span a distance up to 60 ft., and Bee Line says the system introduces new technology that uses four heads with ultra-fine lasers and high resolution sensor boards for a longer striking distance that’s extremely accurate and highly repeatable.
One of the most important advancements of the LC7580 system is the ability to accurately gauge and calculate set-back on Twin-steer vehicles. Bee Line says the ability to measure and adjust timing will set all Twin-steer tires in line. Parallel steer axles are important for increased tire life. This system uses four heads to measure all steer axles and the acclaimed tandem aligner to gauge rear axles, the company says. Gyros in the front and rear heads allow for caster measurements to be taken on all steer axles.
