Why does the vehicle geometry have to be set in final assembly?

Relating to a perfectly horizontal steering wheel position when driving straight it is necessary to accurately measure and adjust the wheel geometry in the area of angle minutes. The most important wheel geometry parameters are the individual toe angles, the total toe angles, the camber angles and the castor angles. The individual toe angles of the rare axle determine the driving direction of the vehicle.

How exactly is x-light used to set headlamps?

With means of specific camera technology, focussing screen, fresnel lens and semi-automatic adjustment tool x-light achieves measurement- and adjustment accuracies better than 0,1% (less than 3,43 angular minutes).
