Hunter Engineering to show HawkEye XL at TMC

Technician testimony appears to back up Hunter's claims of increased alignment speed when using the HawkEye XL.

Hunter Engineering will exhibit the new HawkEye XL aligner at the ATA’s Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) annual meeting, March 4-7 in New Orleans, with frequent live demonstrations taking place throughout the trade show.

Hunter tells us that the HawkEye XL features lightweight, three-dimensional XL targets that are durable, low-maintenance and non-electronic. The company also says that new cameras provide extra-long-range sight, capturing measurements in a single rolling compensation and displaying live alignment readings for up to three axles at once. According to Hunter, the XL’s extended range allows it to align 53-ft. trailers, and the moveable cabinet and camera beam help technicians perform alignments on the floor or on a lift, in any bay.

“With our old system, I was doing 15 trucks in one 10-hour day,” says technician Vernon Embree of Prime Inc., who tested the HawkEye XL with their large fleet of newer trucks. “Now I’ve hit 26 trucks in one day. I would definitely recommend the XL to anybody.”

“Technicians love the simplicity and ease of use of the HawkEye XL,” says Hunter product manager Alan Hagerty. “It’s perfect for heavy-duty shops looking to speed up and supersize their alignment capabilities.”
