Advantages and disadvantages of different types of stands for toe camber

The wheel alignment stand is a specialized equipment with the help of which the wheel angles of vehicles are adjusted. To date, there are several types of such equipment, the most accurate setting is obtained using 3D DAMPER CONVERGENCE. Let's consider the advantages and disadvantages of all hardware options.

Optical stands

They are the ancestors of all wheel alignment machines. Toe-in is measured using a light beam that is projected onto a screen with a linear scale. If there are deviations from the norm, then the master twists the rods or eccentric, adjusting the angles. In modern wide-profile service stations, this type of equipment is not used, since the measurements are not accurate, and it only works on the front suspension.

Laser types

On such stands, the deviation of the wheel angles from the norm is measured by projecting a laser beam. If we compare this type with the previous version, then the accuracy of the data obtained using optical equipment is an order of magnitude higher. The advantage of laser equipment: the ability to work with two suspensions. The cost of a laser stand for toe camber is relatively low, but it is used mainly in amateur garages, because it is inferior in accuracy to computer counterparts.


Measurements are taken by special sensors that are placed on the measuring heads. The data is sent to the computer in the form of diagrams and graphs. Depending on the types of sensors, computer stands are of several types:

cord-type - they have wired sensors in their structure. These variations are the earliest version of computer hardware. To this day, this variation of the performance of the equipment is the most frequently purchased, since it has a rather low cost.
infrared - wired communication in these models is installed between the center of the system and the front sensors. The data from the rear head sensors are transmitted to the front head via infrared channel.
radical - data transmission is carried out over a wireless radio channel. Advantage: Communication is immune to interference.
non-contact or 3D stands - sensors are placed on the lift, onto which the vehicle enters. The study of angles is carried out remotely, the sensors move along the vehicle and transmit all the data to the computer monitor. This type has perfect accuracy, but at the same time a high price.
