Rotary Lift

Rotary introduces a full line of wheel alignment equipment that has no minimum bay size requirements and can be used anywhere in the shop. 

Rotary wheel alignment systems include the R1080 Baysaver 3D, R1070 CCD Pro, and R1060 CCD Shop. All three are completely mobile and can be used with any alignment lift, including Rotary’s new XA14 alignment scissor lift, Y-Lift vertical rise platform lift or AR Series four-post lifts, including Shockwave-equipped models. 

One of the most noticeable features of all Rotary aligners is that they don’t require a tower at the front of the bay. As a result, shops gain five to eight feet of additional workspace in traditional alignment bays or they can shrink their alignment bay size. Each portable aligner console can be positioned anywhere for ultimate convenience. Data is transmitted wirelessly directly from the measuring heads to each other and the control unit.

The R1080 Baysaver 3D high-performance wheel aligner provides automatic camera positioning and target recognition. It features patent-pending 3D targets with exclusive Solid Vision Technology that eliminate the need for runout compensation, are extremely lightweight and have no electronic components inside, so they require no maintenance. The R1080 also comes with self-centering three-point, quick-locking tire clamps. It can provide an alignment reading in as little as eight seconds and works at any height.

The R1070 CCD Pro displays programs and data in easy-to-use 3D graphics that guide the technician through the measuring process step by step. Synoptic LED signal repeaters on each CCD measuring head ensure uninterrupted data transmission. The mobile control unit cabinet contains a powerful PC, printer, and monitor, as well as special supports to store and recharge the measuring heads. 

The R1060 CCD Shop controls all the characteristic angles of both axles using four measuring heads with eight CCD sensors. The mobile control unit cart provides convenient storage for the computer, printer, monitor, battery charger, clamps, and accessories. The R1060 CCD Shop’s Vehicle Spoiler Program is automatically activated to perform a simplified procedure to measure sports cars and those with tuned bodies.
