Manatec Elec­tron­ics has been con­ferred with the ‘In­no­va­tion Award’ un­der the Trucks Prod­ucts & Ser­vices cat­e­gory in 2018 Au­tomechanika, Frank­furt, Ger­many for their in­no­va­tion of HCV wheel aligner ‘Jumbo 3D Su­per’. Jumbo 3D is the world’s first 3D wheel aligner for multi axle trucks, trail­ers and buses. Jumbo 3D uses lat­est in­no­va­tive dig­i­tal-imag­ing tech­nol­ogy by de­ploy­ing high res­o­lu­tion dig­i­tal cam­eras 2 per side and op­er­ate with in­tel­li­gent soft­ware.

The prod­uct is ca­pa­ble of mea­sur­ing the wheel align­ment pa­ram­e­ters in­clud­ing wheel “Ru­nout” of 5 axles si­mul­ta­ne­ously in 2 min­utes, against 40 min­utes in the present sys­tem and elim­i­nates the need for lift­ing the heavy axles one by one man­u­ally by the me­chan­ics. The ben­e­fit is very high pro­duc­tiv­ity and man­ual en­ergy sav­ing. The prod­uct is suitable for multi axle trucks, buses and trail­ers. There is no elec­tron­ics fit­ted to the wheels and there­fore very less main­te­nance cost.

Thrust an­gle ad­just­ment in a sin­gle axle ve­hi­cle is a te­dious job us­ing con­ven­tional trial and er­ror method. Manatec have de­vel­oped sin­gle axle ad­juster tool which helps in ef­fort­lessly ad­just­ing the thrust an­gle pre­cisely and saves con­sid­er­able time and en­ergy.
