30 Jul Is this the death of the Tilt arm? The Par Move Concept
The first Tyre Changer of its kind, the 813XL from Hofmann Megaplan, features a new concept in tyre fitting which is set to shake up the industry.
For most the sight of a tilt back arm is now commonplace on their tyre machine and has been for some time. However, there have always been some drawbacks for certain users where space may be a premium or strength and speed is a priority.
The 813XL from Hofmann Megaplan is the first of its kind with the introduction of the Par Move Concept. The patented parallelogram design works to eliminate flex, increase speed and reduce the required space for a machine. All mounted on a re-enforced chassis and with a robust fixed vertical tower, we could be looking at a new industry standard.
How the Par Move Concept works
With the mounting head attached to a fixed vertical column, it rotates around pivot points rather than tilting back in the traditional manner. The possibility for flex from the force of the arm is all but eliminated.
The Par Move Concept also means far less space is required as all movement is achieved through a series of pivots on the front of the machine. The machine sits flush with its back to the wall and allows over 1 metre of space to be recovered.
Par Move also offers far greater precision than traditional tilt arm machines. The movement of the mounting head on a traditional tilt arm is carried out through sliding parts and manual adjustments. The pins and bushings of the Par Move parallelogram system are far more precise.
The 813XL also includes a QuadraClamp 4 cylinder turntable and brand new IntelliPro dual assist arm system which gives users the simplest, most effective and most ergonomic twin-assist arm design Hofmann Megaplan have ever produced.
The 813XL is available now to view online. Call the Hofmann Megaplan team on 01480 8-9-10-11 for more information and to arrange a free live demonstration.
