CONWAY, Ark. — Snap-on Inc.'s John Bean garage equipment brand has developed an equipment package that it claims will allow independent auto repair shops to perform sensor calibration on ADAS driver safety systems that are becoming increasingly common on newer vehicles.
The John Bean EZ-ADAS recalibration system is designed to integrate with a shop's existing alignment equipment and diagnostic scan tools to provide independent repair shops with the ability to service vehicles with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Snap-on said.
"There are several causes for why a car would need ADAS recalibration," John Bean Vice President of Sales Jeff Szuba said, noting that some are evident, such as replacing a windshield, but that other repairs or regular maintenance like wheel alignments, tire size changes or changed suspension angles can influence the ability of a vehicle's ADAS to perform correctly.
"ADAS systems are becoming increasingly common in newer vehicles and will continually gain more ground in the industry," he said, "and John Bean has the solution to help shops calibrate and service these advanced vehicle systems."
The John Bean EZ-ADAS system features a centerline set-up process that is "highly accurate" and easy to operate, Snap-on said, and includes all the required hardware and target components to cover a wide range of makes and models, thus simplifying the repair process and eliminating the need for expensive tools.
"An investment in this comprehensive calibration system is a wise choice for shops evaluating new equipment purchases," Mr. Szuba said. "It not only allows shops to compete more effectively in today's advanced repair environment, but it also lets them expand services offered and perform more of these profitable jobs quickly, easily and accurately."
Snap-on/John Bean will have the EZ-ADAS System on display and in operation during the 2019 SEMA Show, Nov. 5-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth No. 10809.
