Hunwick Engineering Ltd in Halstead, Essex has invested in a Haweka Axis200 wheel aligner with trailer kit to enable them to ensure the alignment on new trailers is accurate before they leave the factory.
The Axis200 is the leading alignment system in the UK, taking less than 10 minutes to accurately measure every angle on a truck in the as driven position - there is no need to lift the vehicle. The alignment system can be used on twin steer, rigid, semi-trailers and buses.
Martyn Wood, Technical Director at Hunwick's said:
"Poor wheel alignment increases tyre drag on the road wasting rubber and increasing fuel use. By aligning the wheels and axles the trailer becomes more streamlined and drives as we intended. The Axis200 was specially adapted for our range of trailers and is used at least three times a week. The aligner is easy to use and has reduced idle time and costs in the workshops waiting for third parties to arrive to check tracking."
