Key Precision & safety Features Built-In

Click on each blue box to learn more about the feature.

  • Contacts the end of the axle during operation to stop the axle from moving from left to right.
  • Ensures precise wheel profile during lathe truing process.

  • 4 drive rollers take over and rotate the wheel during the truing process. Rollers assist in lifting and overall stabilization of the vehicle.
  • Rollers deliver tractive effort/adhersion to rotate wheels at a consistent speed during truing for maximum precision and accuracy from wheel to wheel.

  • One of 3 components that securely hold the vehicle in place.
  • Supports the bottom of the journal box, so there is no movement of the axle during the truing process.

Designed for simple and intuitive use anywhere in the world.

Controls ensure that all operations are completed step-by-step in the correct sequence.

Smart and logical panel configuration divided into separate operating functions:

  • Operating functions
  • Wheel drive functions
  • Lathe functions

Color-coded to show the stage of operation at any time:

  • Green – Operating
  • Yellow – Operation needs to be completed
  • Red – Operation completed

Valves ensure that cylinders holding vehicle are locked in place before, during and after lathe operation. Cylinders won’t extend or retract without power and commands being applied.

Ensures the cylinders lifting the vehicle during operation cannot retract during power loss.

Like a true 4-wheel drive system, the quad divider provides equal flow to each drive roller of the machine, ensuring constant traction to the vehicle wheel. This prevents slippage during the truing process.

  • Contacts the back side of the wheel. Works in tandem with axle centers to prevent lateral movement of the wheels during the truing operation.
  • Delivers maximum accuracy wheel to wheel.
