Pinnacle Automotive Systems has released a new generation of its Jumbo 3D Heavy Truck Aligner, which can align six axles simultaneously in under three minutes, which can also include two steer axles.
The company says its imaging technology enables the aligner to accurately align a tractor and trailer up to 62 ft. in length. Other new features described by the company include the following:
- A drawbar gauge, which aligns a full trailer fitted with a swiveling tow bar at the front;
- A drive through, an upgradable feature designed for fleet applications which takes vertical camera columns and spaces them out to four meters;
- A bushing calculator, steering lock, frame-based axle alignment and frame reference input.
- Ae drawbar gauge fixed on the tow bar that will align all the axles parallel to it.
- A bushing calculator, which enables the Jumbo 3D to make adjustments on the wheel in free mode. The software system guides the technician to position the cam in the right direction.
- A steering lock that locks the steering wheel against the floor instead of the driver seat. It is mandatory to lock the steering wheel while performing the roll-on runout compensation. Trucks designed with seat memory settings and automatic pre-adjustment seat positions will fail to hold the standard steering lock due to the seat resets.
- And a frame-based axle alignment feature that allows technicians to align the frame.
