THE BEST TECHNOLOGY THANKS TO API’S KNOW-HOW
CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY MEETS USER-FRIENDLINESS
- Measurement procedure based on the optical triangulation principle: Color Coded Triangulation (CCT)
- Using the latest measurement techniques: Siemens SIDIS 3D-CAM
- The entire surface of each wheel is analyzed by means of hundreds of colored light lines and the latest image processing technique
- The analysis of color changes of several parallel lines allows the determination of the entire chassis alignment
- The wide measurement range permits the analysis of the most diversified wheel sizes and vehicle models
- Technology already widely used in the industry (for example in the production of premium OEM) and accordingly mature
- Additionally, APi benefits from more than five years of experience from practical use in car repair shops of all sizes.
ADVANTAGES OF THE PRINCIPLE OF OPTICAL TRIANGULATION
- Stable measurement on stationary wheel: No influence by unevenness of tires, such as mold remnants or lettering. No additional process times, prevention of quality-related risks.
- Precise values even for low-profile tires or rim protection: no tire or rim-specific influence.
- High degree of robustness: records the entire wheel surface.
- High measurement frequency: stabilizes the measurement values.
- Large measurement range and greatly increased depth of focus: measurement capabilities for extremely different tire treads and/or dimensions.
- Processing time/cycle time reduction: process-oriented and reliable, stable measurement with smooth, fast measurement value updates facilitates quicker adjustments
- Reliable setting verification and validation: without additional rotation measurement.
- Stable adjustment process: simple and practical implementation, extensive optimization and improvement of existing procedures.
- Simple, quick analytical capabilities: Automatic diagnostic system based upon current image information, obtained by simple, user-friendly and clearly structured commands.
