Hunter’s Road Force Touch received the Automechanika Innovation Award, the only award claimed by a U.S. company at the event in Frankfurt, Germany.
Hunter said the Road Force Touch, which provides complete wheel and tire diagnostics with unmatched speed, was selected for the award by a jury of automotive experts, who judged new products based on the technology’s overall innovation, functionality, aftermarket relevance, safety and contribution to environmental protection.
According to the maker, the balancer performs a simulated road test using Hunter’s patented load roller to find hidden vibration problems and offers match-mounting instructions to minimize forces. The Road Force Touch also features an intuitive touchscreen interface and patented eCal true auto-calibration.
Automechanika is the world’s largest automotive service show, with nearly 5,000 exhibitors from 79 countries in attendance presenting over 13,000 new products.
