Designed with service technicians in mind, the new Hofmann® geoliner® 678 Wheel Alignment System is the newest addition to the Hofmann imaging alignment family.

“Advanced technology, combined with intuitive software, gives any alignment technician the tools they need for an easy and fast alignment,” said Adam Brown, director of product management for Hofmann. “The Hofmann geoliner 678 has all that and more. It is easy to use and provides complete and accurate alignment readings quickly and efficiently.”

Simple to navigate, the geoliner 678 completes the entire alignment process efficiently with minimal steps, allowing shops to conduct more alignments per day. Advanced productivity-enhancing features of the geoliner 678 include:

  • Automatic tracking, which follows the vehicle when it raised and lowered, reducing time spent at the console.
  • Video-speed camera feature that allows for fast compensation, lessening wait time.
  • Live readings so there is no need to re-measure.

The new Hofmann geoliner 678 also includes such intelligent software tools as EZ-TOE for electric power steering, which allows adjustment of the critical front individual toe without locking the steering column, resulting in a level steering wheel every alignment. Other innovative software features include rolling radius that examines for mismatched tire sizes, cross diagonal that checks for vehicle structural damage and adjustment assistance that shows where adjustments need to be made on the vehicle.

When connected to the internet, the geoliner 678 can quickly access vehicle specifications and OEM repair procedures for ADAS repairs as well as provide fast and easy software and vehicle specification updates. The new online report management capability allows shop aligner reports to be printed, emailed or texted from anywhere, improving shop efficiency and customer service.
