Incorrect alignment can result in rapid and irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.
Wheel alignment is generally affected by hitting potholes in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. Alignment of wheels and tyres to the specification required by a vehicle is an important way to guarantee a smooth ride and to get the most out of your tyres.
The direction and angle at which tyres are set are both important. Wheel alignment involves checking the direction and angle against vehicle manufacturers’ specifications and are both equally important. You may hear these described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber.
The "Toe” refers to whether the front of the tyres across an axle are closer or further apart than the rear of the tyres. Different types of vehicles need different toe settings to allow for the way that wheels pull either towards each other or apart.
The "Camber” is the inward or outward tilt of a tyre and is specified by the vehicle manufacturer. It can be affected by potholes in the road and needs to be checked regularly to see if any adjustment is required.
Incorrect wheel alignment can result in rapid wearing on the edges of the tyre and could affect the handling on the vehicle and certainly mean a replacement earlier than would otherwise be required. An example reading would be 2-4-4mm or as in the image (below right) 2-1-0mm.
It’s worth keeping an eye out for unusual wear on your tyres, such as premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder, which could be caused by an incorrect camber setting.
When there are more than one (1) panel requires to repairs and/or replacement, a chassis rail has been damaged or displaced, there will be corrosion damage and the vehicle structure has deformed or collapsed.
Car Robot Collision Repair System provides equipment that helps us to repair even the most
damaged vehicles. It is a collision repair system provides collision repair facilities with an easy
way to upgrade/expand the system according to the growing needs of repair volumes,staff and
productivity because we understand the importance of fast and accurate repairs.
Car Robot Collision Repair Machine can handle all passenger cars, SUVs and vans. The Star/
Starblock fasteners are used to mount vehicles without pinch welds. The Car Robot Collision
Repair System includes the standard Car Robot straightening bed with quick sill clamps for
quick vehicle mounting. Additionally, it uses the already familiar straightening tower, which
gives speed and working comfort to straightening. Car Robot can be made longer by using
telescope structure extension beams, which give a long structure to the straightening bench.
This allows the bench to work perfectly in very demanding straightening work, such as
changing or straightening the entire roof or frame structures.
