Manatec bags innovation award
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.
