29 mar 2006 - Analyzing competition: Smart-Weight function on Hunter's wheel balancers
Smart-Weight function has been recently introduced by HUNTER (USA).
Smart-weight function is said to reduce wheel balancing weight requirement by "over 25%" (Italian advertising - Pneurama 1/2006 - pag 48).
On Hunter web site, as of 28/03/2006, Smart-Weight is said to "can actually reduce the average shop's wheel weight costs by 33% or more".
The true story is...
19 jan 2006 - Why 16-bit is the best choice for your wheel balancer?   Open document
FASEP is introducing the brand new 16-bit technology on all its wheel balancers.
This innovation is done to introduce more and more features and possibility in modern wheel balancers.
31 oct 2005 - The unique  Self Centering Clampers from FASEP    Open document
The FASEP clampers have always been object of admiration from both clients and competitors.
Normally our clients are amazed by their quality of construction and their obvious capacity of precise centering. Our competitors ask themselves how we can permit ourselves the luxury of such high-quality clampers (and therefore expensive) in front of a market in which price-politic seems often more important than quality.
13 jun 2005 - Save time and money with a smart installation   Open document
A well prepared and planned installation helps to save time for daily-routine work, protect sensors from falling, cables from being damaged.
A good installation improves efficiency and work-speed and saves your money.
31 may 2005 - What is the difference between PSD and CCD sensor technology?   Open document
End Users are usually obscure about what is behind a CCD-sensor or a PSD-sensor.
This is a short guide to understand the two technologies.
18 apr 2005 - Is FASEP a 6-sensors or an 8-sensors type? Open document
We are often asked this question. It is just the wrong question.
FASEP is just a 4-wheels system. More accurate then any 6/8 sensors system.
Pretty much like 3D systems, FASEP alignment measure angles "along" the car, instead of measuring "across" the car.
16 dec 2004 - MARS: Minimization of Static Residual Unbalance 
For a quality wheel balancing, tolerances should be considered carefully!
FASEP new 16-bit wheel balancers are built with an innovative software function that minimizes chances of come-backs due to vibrations caused by residual unbalance even after a correct wheel balancing has been performed.
25 feb 2004 - Electronic turntables: expensive option or key part of the aligner?  Open document
Turntables are often offered as an option for wheel aligners, as if they might be used rarely or as if they might not be necessary for an accurate wheel alignment job.
FASEP offers electronic turntables on all computerized aligners as a standard feature. Why?

16 dec 2003 - Understanding Customer Databank: a great advantage on FASEP wheel aligners 
"Customer Databank" allows operator to store alignment data as soon as alignment is completed. Latest alignment data are stored for each customer for each car.
This is the start of a great utility for wheel alignment.
4 dec 2003 - LASER system for application of adhesive weight Open document

10 nov 2000 - Do you really need to measure SetBack ?
a guide to choosing a Wheel Aligner with or without the SetBack measurement, or just a simple explanation of our point of view about SetBack measurement, open to a discussion.
Even if since many years customers hear that SetBack is a fundamental measurement for Wheel Alignment, we start seeing more and more new products and solutions for measuring Wheel Alignment where SetBack is not considered. Solutions with a philosophy near or same as FASEP, where toe measurements are done "along the car" instead of "across the car".

25 feb 2000 6 good reasons to check (and sell) Wheel Alignment
what the tire should know and say to sell the most important service that it offers.
Although for many years to be repeated that the tire, compared to the decline in margins on tires, must respond by focusing on services, continue to proliferate behavior "self-lesionisti" like "4x2 including mounting, balancing and convergence."
To focus more on selling services, we publish a small handbook on the reasons for carry out professional buoyancy, should print and attach visible in the store because they are the customers themselves to understand the importance of a good attitude.
