New HawkEye Elite® alignment system approved by Volkswagen Audi Group

he_vagVolkswagen Audi Group has approved Hunter’s HawkEye Elite® alignment system for use in their workshops worldwide. Hawkeye Elite uses four precision cameras to measure the position and orientation of targets mounted to each wheel using Hunter’s patented QuickGrip™ adaptors. QuickGrip adaptors feature spring-loaded Quick-Change arms that grip the tire, eliminating metal-to-metal contact and possible rim damage.

Hunter and Volkswagen Audi Group have had a strong relationship since the 1970s, when Hunter first developed customized workshop equipment to meet Volkswagen’s needs. In 2004, Volkswagen approved Hunter’s DSP600 sensors, becoming the first German automaker to approve digital imaging alignment sensors.

Today, Hunter is proud to support Volkswagen Audi Group worldwide. Volkswagen Audi Group is the largest auto manufacturer in the world, providing a full line of vehicles through dealership networks in 154 countries including 1,056 dealerships in North America.
