HPA-FAIP: A New Generation

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) At Automechanika Frankfurt 2006, HPA-FAIP introduced of a full set of new equipment, which the company describes as "a new generation" of machines, with innovations in all product lines.

Taking wheel alignment first: the C 900 is the top-of-the-range HPA aligner with “imaging technology;” this machine is the result of years of research with a patented stereo, bi-visual infrared read-out and design. The C 900 is HPA’s answer to the increasingly challenging world of advanced alignment procedures.

In HPA’s tyre changing range, the ultimate is the M 928, the flagship machine of the M-Series suitable for tyres up to 28" in diameter and 15" width. It is the ideal equipment for both tyre specialists and first-class car dealers. It will be shortly be available, equipped with the "lever-less" tools.

Also in the tyre changing range, the M 624 is a dedicated machine for changing sport and low profile tyres and is aimed particularly at advanced markets such as the USA, Australia and Japan.

HPA-FAIP has also introduced new generation machines in the "B"-Series wheel balancers. Two models equipped with brand new mechanics and shaft of 40 mm diameter are the B 240 (digital display) and B 340 (LCD monitor). The machines are supplied with a set of specific programs for a more effective weight management as standard. A new attractive "Italian style" look completes the features of the machines.

With the introduction of these new products, HPA-FAIP is underlining its role as an innovative partner for Service Centres and car dealers and signalling its willingness to compete on international markets.
