Axle Play Detector


The VPD Play Detector is designed to check quickly and efficiently most steering and suspension components.
It enables a technician quickly to detect play and wear in the wheel guiding and steering parts of heavy goods vehicles and public service vehicles. A vehicle often shows wear and tear in ball joints, bushings, fixations, pivot points, link bolts and shock absorber mountings. Most worn or damaged components can be identified before they pose problems.
The VPD consists of control unit with hydraulic power unit, a control lamp and two moving platforms, each with a plate. Each platform is actuated by two hydraulic cylinders.
