Story by: Team CV
The quest for growth took Pondicherry-based Manatec to Automechanika Frankfurt, Germany. Established in 1987, the company, specialising in the design and manufacture of garage equipments like wheel aligners, wheel balancers, two post lifts, gas analysers, smoke meters, and headlamp aligners among others, displayed its product range at the premier auto industry fair. In an effort to draw attention to its technical competence, the company launched the 3D wheel aligner for multi-axle trucks. The product, called the Jumbo 3D Super, is claimed to be the world’s first aligner that can perform run out compensation of up to five axles simultanously. Confident that such products will help it to differentiate itself from the competition, the Jumbo 3D Super, according to Manatec sources, is capable of aligning up to five axles in a single roll of the vehicle, increasing productivity and profitability of the enterprise that performs the wheel alignment.
Manatec also introduced an in-lift 3D wheel aligner at Frankfurt. Another world first according to Manatec sources, the in-lift 3D wheel aligner works such that it uses two cameras to mesaure the alignment angles. Branded as Genie 3D, it comes built in with an alignment lift and the smallest front target plates. Claimed to eliminate the requirement of minimum distance between cameras to targets, the aligner can be installed in the least available space. It was engineered to save on both, cost as well as space, cite Manatec sources. They add that the company has applied for patents for both the products.
Through the development and manufacture of innovative products like the Jumbo 3D Super and Genie 3D, Manatec is keen to highlight its technological competence. Keen to work closely with Original Equipment Manufactures (OEMs), Manatec is particularly proud of its competence in design and software. These two, claim Manatec sources, is enabling the company to produce superior quality products. They add that the products that their company makes are supperior to what are found to originate out of China, and at times, even Europe.
