Pro-Align launches new autonomous tyre tread scanning equipment


Pro-Align has launched a new vehicle diagnostic health check system that can help workshops improve customer service levels and increase their revenue.

The ‘Hunter Quick Tread Edge’ is a new drive over tread depth scanning system, which Pro-Align says is the first of its kind capable of scanning the entire width of the tyre, from edge to edge.

To obtain the tyre scan results, users simply drive the vehicle over the equipment’s scanning plates and the tyre tread depths are measured across the whole width of the tyres. The scanning plates can be installed as either surface mount or flush mount system, giving workshops added flexibility in their layout and design.

Regardless of which option is selected, workshops can be sure of ongoing accuracy, low servicing and maintenance costs thanks to its corrosion resistant stainless-steel construction and self-cleaning air knife. With full compatibility with HunterNet, results can be shown instantly to customers and records can be stored to create a detailed customer history to aid with upselling and future marketing efforts.

“The Hunter Quick Tread Edge is an incredibly exciting new product that we’re very proud to be launching in the UK [and Ireland],” comments Greg Thompson, group account director, Pro-Align. “The equipment provides the most comprehensive and detailed tyre tread results available from an automated drive over system. Not only does this eliminate the guesswork that comes with manual inspection, it’s also fast, reduces labour costs and increases tyre sales opportunities.”

While Quick Tread Edge is available as a stand-alone system, it can also be integrated into the Hunter Quick Check Drive system. This provides workshops with the ultimate automated vehicle health check diagnostic system, assessing the wheel alignment settings and tread depths of every vehicle entering the workshop, no matter what job they are booked in for, and potentially uncovering many paying work opportunities.
