Hunter Engineering releases Quick Check Drive™
ST. LOUIS-Hunter Engineering Company® is proud to announce the launch of its latest vehicle service innovation, Quick Check Drive™ – a touchless alignment inspection system that provides instant alignment readings and requires no human involvement.
Quick Check Drive™ is an innovation leap from the original Quick Check™ – Hunter’s vehicle inspection system that was released in 2011.
Each Quick Check Drive™ is equipped with eight cameras and 32 laser sensors that scan a vehicle’s tires as they drive past, eliminating operator labor and stopping of the vehicle. The system can scan a vehicle every 3-5 seconds, meaning no service drive back-up, making it possible to check every car that visits your shop.
The alignment inspection system is able to measure camber and total toe in seconds while providing unmatched accuracy and repeatability on every vehicle it inspects.
In addition to providing total toe and camber readings, Quick Check Drive™ incorporates a vehicle identification system to capture front and rear license plates on each vehicle. This identification system automatically provides a license plate-to-VIN conversion while simultaneously determining OEM specifications on most vehicles.
Nearly 60 percent of vehicles on the road are in need of alignment, and wheel alignment is the most profitable service in dealerships and service facilities. With Hunter’s Quick Check Drive™, service providers can realize unprecedented profits and revenue, and vehicle owners can maximize tire life by correcting misalignment.
The touchless inspection system can also feature an optional body damage camera which captures 40 or more images per vehicle without a time penalty, protecting service providers against questionable damage claims.
Hunter Engineering Company® is the global leader in alignment systems, wheel and tire service, brake service and inspection lane equipment. Hunter® equipment is approved and used by vehicle manufacturers, automobile and truck dealers, tire dealers and service facilities around the world.
