CORGHI Australia manufactures, supports and maintains the wheel alignment machine range and wheel alignment equipment in the country.
When you purchase a wheel alignment machine, you must take into consideration the quality, reliability and longevity of the device so you can get the most out of your investment.
Whether you are wheel alignment specialists, a tyre workshop or a car dealership, we have a quality wheel alignment solution to fit your needs.
What happens when a car is out of alignment?
Wheel nonalignment is commonly caused by hitting potholes in the road or by excessive friction and deterioration to the vehicle’s steering or suspension components.
Incorrect wheel alignment causes unnecessary, inconsistent and abrupt wear down of the tyres and can also affect the handling and safety of the car. In order to get the most out of a specific vehicle’s tyres, a precise custom wheel alignment using top of the line products and tools is imperative.
Some tell-tale signs of a vehicle needing a wheel alignment are the car pulling to one side, the steering wheel failing to return to centre or feeling loose while driving, premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder of a tyre.
By performing an accurate wheel alignment you will be able to consistently increase the fuel efficiency and maximise the life of the vehicle’s tyres for your customers. Not to mention making their car or van safer and easier to drive!
What are the different machines and tools needed for a wheel alignment?
Our alignment machines help you effectively and efficiently square a car’s wheels and axles in conjunction with each other and the surface of the road, so that they are all moving in the correct position and direction.
As you know, a wheel alignment machine helps you carefully adjust the toe, thrust, camber and caster that influence tyre movement and position. During a wheel alignment, you must also ensure the vehicle’s steering wheel is centred and make sure that no suspension components are excessively worn or damaged.
But how much does an alignment machine cost? As we are a wheel alignment machine designer and manufacturer (not a distributor), you are only looking at between $10,000 and $20,000 for one of our quality machines.
We can easily provide any necessary spare parts and reliably service your wheel alignment machines across Australia, meaning you are never out of action for long.
How does a wheel alignment machine work?
Wheel alignments on any vehicle should be performed by an experienced mechanic with a high calibre machine like the ones we design and manufacture at CORGHI Australia.
Newer computerised alignment machines feature clamp-like devices that are attached to the wheels of the car and links to a computer that helps take the precise measurements and make the necessary adjustments.
CCD wheel alignment machines are the most popular solution found in workshops around the world. This technology is consistent but is not the latest wheel alignment development.
We take it one step further with our range of clampless REMO wheel alignment machines. Fast, reliable and practical, the check-in is automated and wheel alignment, tread depth and lights are checked by sitting comfortably in the vehicle with a tablet on the steering wheel.
This is the latest in wheel alignment machine technology and does not leave much room for human error and reduces the chance of damage to a high end vehicle.
What is 3D alignment?
3D wheel alignment machines use eight high resolution cameras that allow you to perform the most precise wheel alignment on all types of vehicles.
Through intelligent wheel measurement (diameter and heights) a complete 3D view of the car is generated on the screen.
You are able to make live adjustments as all angle values are indicated in real time. There are optional instructions that can follow the operator step by step with a graphic indicator on how to proceed making your job much more efficient and safe.
3D alignment machines is a reliable and well known technology that brings the car’s suspension into its proper configuration, positioning and adjusting. It improves the customer experience as they are able to easily see and understand the needs of their vehicle’s wheel alignment.
Do I need a 2 or 4 wheel alignment?
The type of alignment you give will depend on the vehicle’s suspension. A four-wheel alignment is specifically for those cars and vans that are 4WD, all-wheel drive vehicles or front-wheel drive vehicles with independent or adjustable rear suspensions.
Both axles have to be properly aligned so that all four wheels are square and perpendicular to the road.
If the vehicle is not 4WD or AWD, the car will likely only require a front-end alignment or a thrust-angle alignment.
Which is the best wheel alignment machine in Australia?
CORGHI is a specialised wheel alignment machine manufacturer. Our wheel alignment range is built within our own factories, run by European technical experts and standards.
We are therefore able to offer our Australian customers the best quality European designs that surpass mass-produced wheel aligners sold through distributors.
Just like all CORGHI equipment, R.E.M.O. technology is highly accurate and efficient. It has been awarded the Italian Mechatronic Prize which acknowledges CORGHI’s lead in innovations.
