Our cars, like our bodies at birth, come out in excellent shape and form when they leave the assembly plant. Except for a very few cases, these cars roll out of the line ready to take on the busy highways and the rough and tumble of everyday drives.
But just like our bodies, cars also need regular maintenance and check-ups to ensure they remain in tiptop condition. That is the reason for regular preventive maintenance service (PMS).
Many of these service centers carry equipment that measure minute details like tire and wheel alignment, headlight adjustments, and body alignment. Beissbarth, a German auto service company founded in 1899 in Munich, is one the main local suppliers of these vehicle testing equipment. They have been manufacturing precision measuring equipment for OEM car manufacturers and IAM automotive workshops worldwide for over 100 years.
In addition to wheel alignment, brake testing, test lanes, and headlight testers, Beissbarth also offers tire changers, wheel balancers, A/C service equipment, tire diagnosis and lifts.
Beissbarth is currently the main product being used by Opus, an LTO-certified Motor Vehicle Inspection Center in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. They are responsible for inspecting and keeping cars in tiptop shape.
Early this year, Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said he wanted the reactivation of MVIC’s after a series of deadly crashes caused by ill-maintained vehicles, particularly public transportion like jeepneys and buses.
Beissbarth manufactures products needed in motor vehicle safety inspections. They have tire balancing and wheel alignment machines that keep motor vehicles running in an even keel. These machines have tire tread measuring meters to see if your still have the needed road grip or are already worn.
Another of the brand’s main products are headlight testers. These testers ensure that a car has enough illumination at night to cover a wide area of the road without blinding oncoming vehicles. Beissbarth also has A/C testing equipment to keep car interiors cool and clean.
Beissbarth products can be found at MVIS centers like Opus in Sta. Rosa Laguna, Autoreach in BF Las Piñas, and BSB Junrose Auto Parts in Sta. Cruz, Manila.
