The Benefits Of A Sun Automated Test Lane

See what a Sun automated test lane can do for your workshop's productivity and profitability - especially with the addition of a wheel alignment system.

All businesses know that time is money and that they have to be at their most productive in order to be at their most profitable.

That’s especially the case for garages and workshops, where choosing the right equipment is key to their success.

When it comes to MOT testing, businesses need their bays to let them offer the best level of service to their customers while also providing the benefits of ease of operation and value for money.

One way to do that is by investing in an automated test lane (ATL).

What does an automated test lane do?

This allows for fast and efficient MOT testing using just one technician rather than the two required for working on a standard bay.

This frees up the second person to work on other jobs and allows the garage to get through more work in the same amount of time, increasing productivity and profitability.

An ATL is a complete testing solution including a lift, emissions analyser, brake tester, headlight beam tester, jacking beam and play detectors.

The Sun ATL from Snap-on goes even further with the inclusion of rear slip plates, meaning it can also be used for wheel alignment work – more on that later.

Minimal training is required to carry out an MOT test on an automated test lane thanks to the familiar Windows-based software used on the Sun system.

Tests can be performed in either manual or fully automatic mode.

Once the test is complete, results can be sent wirelessly to a printer anywhere in the building. Individual customer vehicle details, data and test results can be stored for easy recall in the future.

The extra benefits of wheel alignment work

So on to the other big benefit of a Sun automated test lane – the ability to use the lift to carry out wheel alignment work on a vehicle.

This provides an extra revenue opportunity as it means that with the addition of an optional wheel aligner, the lift can still be used productively even when vehicle testing isn’t taking place.

The inclusion of play detectors and rear slip plates on the lift make the Sun ATL an ideal investment for the modern workshop.
