See and drive perfectly with x-light and x-wheel

Headlamp & wheel geometry alignment with highest precision

The innovative test beds x-wheel and x-light ensure precise wheel geometry and headlamp setting. Due to the modular system x-wheel, we are able to offer an optimal solution for your requirements in wheel alignment. Tailored to the stringent requirements in the end-of-line area, the x-light setting system enables highly accurate and reproducible test and setting results.

High precision measurement and fully automatic adjustment

The innovative test beds x-wheel and x-light ensure precise wheel geometry.

Non-contact measurement of chassis geometry

Non-contact measurement of chassis geometry with the innovative three-dimensional measuring system x-3Dprofile.

Automatic toe setting

Without any workers in the End of Line, the toe setting is done fully automatically.

Automatic headlamp setting

Operator dependent headlamp aiming systems with image processing provide highly precise and reproducible test and setting results.

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).
