Hunter Engineering’s Quick Check Drive™ approved by various OEMs
ST. LOUIS - Hunter Engineering’s unmanned alignment inspection system, Quick Check DriveTM, has been approved by 12 leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), including Toyota, Porsche, KIA, Hyundai, Volkswagen/Audi, Fiat Chrysler, and Lexus. The company expects additional approvals this year.
Live demonstrations of Quick Check Drive™ will take place at the 2018 SEMA Show, Oct. 30 – Nov. 2 in South Hall, Booth #41013 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Released in July 2018, Quick Check Drive™ provides instant alignment readings and requires no human involvement. The system can scan a vehicle every 3-5 seconds, measuring total toe and camber autonomously and providing unmatched accuracy on every vehicle it inspects.
Quick Check Drive™ features optional body damage image viewing through HunterNet®, Hunter’s online business intelligence tool. With this feature, service providers can capture 40 or more images per vehicle without a time penalty and protect themselves against questionable damage claims. In addition, the inspection system features integrated license plate cameras that provide automatic vehicle identification, powered by CARFAX™, eliminating the need for manual specification lookup.
“Quick Check Drive is the only touchless alignment audit with the accuracy and repeatability that OEMs expect from their dealer’s inspection equipment,” noted Hunter Product Manager Alex Smith. “No other solution combines the precision measurement technology and autonomous vehicle identification required to reliably assess a vehicle’s alignment condition and compare it to OEM specifications.”
Hunter Engineering has had long-standing success in creating customized equipment that is tailored to comply with OEM service needs; solidifying strong relationships between Hunter and industry-leading manufacturers worldwide.
