Conway, AR – March 7, 2018 – The John Bean® V1200 wheel aligner has been honored as a Top 10 product by Undercar Digest magazine.

“We thank the readers of Undercar Digest magazine for recognizing that the innovative technology and ease of use make the V1200 a difference maker when it comes to productivity and performance,” said Adam Brown, product manager for John Bean. “With its compact and robust design, the John Bean V1200 breaks the space barrier by combining a unique compact design with uncompromising imaging alignment quality and productivity in shorter bays, something that was not possible in the past.”

Implementation, installation, measurement, interface and service are made easy with the new John Bean V1200 wheel aligner. Its revolutionary design enables a high quality alignment system to be added in bays that previously couldn’t accommodate conventional imaging alignment systems.

Installing the John Bean V1200 is simple as it has no moving parts and requires a minimal footprint for usage. Users will get easy measurements as the rolling run-out compensation means no more hassles - just mount clamp and roll to measure. There is no lifting, pod leveling or adaptors; installation is as simple as placing the V1200 reference pods on the lift and you are ready to align.

The next-generation software on the John Bean V1200 makes it easy to learn and use, featuring a notification system that provides critical information without slowing down the alignment process and an adaptive user interface that delivers instant access to productivity tools and assistance whenever required.

Maintenance and service of the John Bean V1200 Wheel Aligner is simple as it is repairable on-site and automatic software and specification updates can be made remotely.
