Wheel Alignment Systems

The 3D measurement is a brand new process developed by Fori A u t o m a t i o n , u s i n g l a s e r measurement modules. Software and system interface improvements resulted in a more precise static / dynamic measurement with better resolution as well as making the system more reliable. This new 3-D wheel alignment machine is a fast flexible and highly accurate system running over 40 JPH.




Alignment Systems Features & Options
 
 
 
 

Toe Tool Systems

Fori offers a full range of Semi & Fully automatic adjustment tools to fit your product. Fori’s tools can be driven pneumatically or electrically, with full integration to the plants torque data verification & storage systems.

Fender Height

Mounted on top of measuring head riser at 4 corners. Includes specially designed camera housing with brackets to adapt to all styles of Fori Wheel Alignment systems.

Steering Wheel Leveling

Fori’s steering wheel leveler is a mechanical device that is attached to the steering wheel.

Predictor Mode

Predictor Mode identifies a unique feature on the wheel and determines it’s orientation.

Caster Sweep Testing

Capability to measure front caster on multiple vehicles with various tire styles.

Multiple Axle Alignment

The heavy duty three axle wheel alignment machine uses 3 sets of floating plates to accommodate the front, middle and trailing axles.

Driverless Alignment Systems

The Wheel alignment system is integrated into the main conveyor line at a stop and go station, no driver needed.

Load Simulation / Vehicle Pull Down

After the vehicle enters the system the load is placed on the vehicle and the system reads the values, the load is lifted and the wheel alignment cycle begins.

3-D Measuring Head Technology

The 3-D Wheel Alignment systems was designed by Fori Automation using corner modules.

Software and system interface improvements resulted in a more precise static / dynamic measurement with better resolution as well as making the system more reliable.

This new 3-D wheel alignment machine is a fast flexible and highly accurate system running over 40 JPH.

3-D Wheel Alignment Features
  •   Two (2) 3-D Camera Modules per wheel: 8 total. Each module generates 36 laser lines for static aligners and dynamic aligners to provide high density measurement data.
  •   Each module contains (1) high speed digital camera (70 FPS).
  •   More than 38,000 possible measured points with more than 10,000 on any one tire equals increased measurement accuracy.
  •   Increased caster sweep accuracy & decreased caster sweep cycle time.
  •   Large field of view: 350 mm height x 250 mm width allows for extremely large range of tire variation with 250 mm Depth of measurement per side accommodates larger vehicle tread width variations and allows for stationary measurement head.
  •   1 Gigabit Ethernet communication capable of long cable runs without electrical noise interference.
  •   Highly accurate wheel center measurement due to high density measurement.
  •   Optional fender measurement module provides X, Y & Z fender location for body height measurement.
  •   Each module contains (1) high speed digital camera(100 FPS)
  •   Large number of measured points = increased measurement accuracy
  •   Measuring heads do not move, eliminates cable tray & wiring connection problems
  •   Large field of view: 350 mm height x 250 mm width
  •  10” Depth of measurement per side accommodates larger vehicle tread width variations and allows for stationary measurement head
  •   Available on all new machines and upgrades / retrofits 3-D system is incorporated with new Fori world standard modular machine design
  •   Static toe set process decreases machine cycle time
  •   Highly accurate wheel center measurement due to high density measurement
  •   Static mode updates @ 0.01 second +/- 100 mm tread width (200mm Total) and minimum of 12º of caster sweep (optional 400mm tread width range available)
  •   Variable mounting - covers the smallest low profile tire to the largest off road tire so all tire ranges can be accommodated
  •   Modular system is pre-wired, pre-piped and packaged for inventory
  •   Intel dual core quad processor in computer eliminates auxiliary image processors
