Touchless wheel alignment is a method of aligning a vehicle's wheels without physically touching the tires or using traditional clamps and targets. Touchless wheel alignment differs from traditional methods of connecting sensors or targets directly to the wheel, but instead utilizes advanced technologies such as lasers, cameras, or other optical sensors to measure and analyze alignment angles.
① Non-contact measurement: The system can measure the wheel alignment angle without physical contact with the wheel. This is achieved through the use of sensors that capture data remotely.
② Fast and efficient: Compared with traditional methods, non-contact wheel alignment systems generally provide a faster measurement process. No physical fixtures and targets are required, simplifying the alignment process.
③ Precision and Accuracy: The advanced optical technology used in the non-contact wheel alignment system provides high precision and accuracy when measuring the alignment angle. This allows for more accurate adjustments and improves overall alignment.
④ User-friendly: The contactless system is designed to be user-friendly, reducing the complexity of the alignment process. Since there are no physical attachments, setup is simplified and allows for faster operation.
⑤ Reduced human error: Because there are fewer physical components involved, non-contact wheel alignment reduces the possibility of human error during the alignment process. This enhances the consistency and reliability of alignment measurements.
⑥ Advanced software integration: Non-contact wheel alignment systems are often equipped with sophisticated software that not only captures alignment data but also provides analysis and diagnostic capabilities. This helps technicians make informed decisions about adjustments.
⑦ Cost reduction: Compared with traditional physical contact positioning systems, non-contact wheel alignment reduces the need for additional tools and devices, reducing repair and maintenance costs.
The automotive service industry's desire for increased efficiency, accuracy and ease of use drives the adoption of contactless wheel alignment technology. This method represents a technological advance in the field of wheel alignment, bringing benefits to both service providers and vehicle owners.
WA913 is the latest wireless non-contact four-wheel alignment device launched by SmartSafe that uses laser image recognition processing and three-dimensional measurement technology to perform four-wheel alignment on vehicles.
WA913 has the following advantages:
Non-contact measurement, no wear
WA913's advanced laser image algorithm and non-contact solution spans traditional CCD and 3D measurement technologies. You only need to park the vehicle on the lift equipped with WA913. There is no need to install a wheel clamp target or push cars and other complex operations. It only takes 30 seconds to complete all four-wheel alignment measurements. Save time and effort, and greatly improve detection efficiency, accuracy and convenience, while perfectly avoiding wear and tear on tires and wheels.
Three-dimensional laser image processing technology, more accurate
WA913 uses a 5-megapixel high-precision industrial camera, coupled with three-dimensional laser image processing technology, to accurately measure key parameters such as toe, camber, caster angle, kingpin inclination angle, thrust angle, etc., and supports wheelbase, wheelbase, shaft offset, wheel offset, center offset and other additional data measurements.
New user experience, easier
WA913 brings more flexible operation solutions. The compact magnetic measurement unit + intelligent connection terminal + WiFi wireless communication replace the constraints caused by traditional huge beam cabinets and equipment cables, saving operating space.
Magnetic design, industry first
WA913 is simple, lightweight and efficient. The 4 measuring units and 2 marking units all adopt magnetic design and can be adapted to scissor lifts and four-post lifts. There is no need for cumbersome assembly, calibration and debugging, and they can be used right out of the box.
In addition to the above advantages, WA913 supports Wi-Fi connection to the smart terminal ST13 to display measurement data in real time. The mobile terminal device is more portable and facilitates real-time viewing of the measurement process and results during vehicle underbody adjustment.
