X-931 Touchless Wheel Aligner

The NEW arrival X-931 Touchless Wheel Aligner is professional equipment which can quickly and accurately measure the wheel alignment data without touching vehicle tire, wheel rim and other components. 

Congratulations to the X-931 Touchless Wheel Aligner for WINNING the “top 20 Tools of 2019” at the annual AMR in Beijing. 

The Future Of The Touchless Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment has always been a cornerstone in automobile maintenance. Over the past 50 years, the wheel alignment has evolved in leaps and bounds. Many wheel alignment specialists in the industry today have personally witnessed the evolution of wheel alignment from the first specialised CCD wheel alignment machine to the now popular 3D wheel alignment.

Launch Technologies is proud to present to you the latest in next-generation wheel alignment. The X931 Hands-Free Wheel Aligner. It’s compact and sleek design is ready to take your workshop into the 21st century. Over five years of research and development. Standing on shoulders of giants in the wheel alignment industry of the likes of Corghi and Beissbarth. The X931 utilizes 3D Laser imaging technology never seen before in the wheel alignment industry.

With the X931 installing cumbersome wheel clamps and performing rolling compensation is now a thing of the past. Simply drive the car onto the rail, live toe and camber readings will instantaneously be displayed, and a simple 20-degree turn of the Wheel will enable the X931 to automatically calculate the caster angles.

The ingeniously simple design of the X931 means that it is also a cost-effective machine. Coming in at less than half the cost of its competitors in the market. The practical design of X931 eliminating any unnecessary components, reduces the cost of maintenance and potential expensive Parts replacement prone to wear and tear.

The internationally recognised vehicle specification database, combined with South African local database gives you peace of mind when it comes to looking for the correct vehicle adjustment data.

Launch SA has been established in Johannesburg South Africa in since 1999. They have been the sole importer of Launch Equipment for over 20 years, with distribution and service networks throughout Southern Africa, Launch has become one of the industry’s leading automotive equipment suppliers, providing excellent products and timely service and maintenance to nationwide.

Launch Technologies’ latest three-dimensional laser technology combined with AI powered image recognition system enables the X931 to accurately determine the angle of the wheels directly from the wheel face. This eliminates any operational errors that can arise from incorrect placement of wheel clamps as well as damages to costly Mag Rims.

During live testing of the Launch X931 Hands-Free Wheel Aligner, it performed up to five times faster than a traditional 3D Wheel Alignment machine, thus reducing the time needed for a full vehicle reading to as little as 60 SECONDS. This cutting-edge time-saving Wheel Aligner will allow a single operator to perform the work of as many as five technicians. This translates to five times the number of wheel alignments performed per wheel alignment bay, cutting your operational costs to a fraction of what a traditional 3D Wheel Aligner.

For a chance to witness the X931 Wheel Aligner in action, you can visit Launch in Bedfordview Johannesburg. Launch will also be exhibiting at Automechanika South Africa (5H14) at the Nazrec Convention Centre in Johannesburg South Africa between from the 18th until the 21st September 2019.
