CONWAY, Ariz. (May 26, 2015) — John Bean, a Snap-on Equipment brand, has launched the V2200 Imaging Wheel Alignment System, which the firm said provides high-resolution imaging technology that “delivers fast, precise readings that improve a shop's productivity and performance.”
The high-resolution cameras on the John Bean V2200 are designed to produce accurate, live-alignment readings and diagnostic data, while passive front and rear XD targets ensure durability, as there are no wheel electronics to damage.
According to John Bean, other productivity-enhancing features include: vehicle track width and wheel base; individual wheel off set and set-back; and the firm's patented EZ-TOE feature that eliminates the need for a steering wheel holder.
Another feature of the V2200 is John Bean's AC200 Universal Wheel Clamps. Constructed from rugged cast aluminum, these clamps have a self-centered design for accurate measurement and vehicle dimensions.
The two-sided claws eliminate the need for accessories and allow reliable clamping over hubcaps. The John Bean AC200 clamps, as well as the XD targets, are lightweight, durable and impact resistant.
“The John Bean V2200 has all the essential features that alignment professionals need to do the job quickly and efficiently,” said Adam Brown, product manager for Snap-on Equipment. “User friendly, the V2200 has an extensive vehicle specification database and patented imaging technology that provides accurate, real-time measurements, delivering customer satisfaction for many years to come.”
