Collision Blueprinting with Alignment Equipment

An alignment is usually called for prior to ADAS calibrations, because if the wheels aren’t going straight, then neither are the cameras or radar.

This means the system won’t work as intended, which can have serious results.

Blueprinting, as Joe Keene explains, helps ensure that all collision damage has been properly repaired and the vehicle is ready for alignment and calibration.

Joe demonstrates in detail how the ADASLink scan tool leads the technician through the pre-scan, including use of extenders for a more comprehensive view and ride height targets to make sure the vehicle is level. As systems change and more thorough documentation is required, Hunter will meet the demands.

The step-by-step onscreen guidance of ADASLink ensures no steps are missed, eliminating guesswork and providing a precise and thoroughly documented calibration for more than 25 million vehicles.

Clutch-based limited slip differentials are common on many automotive applications like trucks and SUVs, but they present a unique problem. These differentials often use different clutch configurations, either cone or flat type, made with various materials and frictional requirements. When both wheels have ample traction, the clutch plates bind together tightly, sending consistent power to each wheel. When one wheel slips, additional power is sent to the other wheel based on the frictional properties of the clutch packs. This is where the gear lubricants frictional properties play an important role in functionality and performance.
