Vehicle Service Group Launches New Range of 2-Column Lifts in EMEA
DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Sept. 19, 2022 – Vehicle Service Group (VSG), part of Dover ( NYSE: DOV) and one of the world's leading automotive equipment companies, today announced the launch of a new range of 2-column lifts under the Rotary and Ravaglioli brands in the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) region, called the Tomorrow Series and the Legend Series respectively.
The Tomorrow Series by Rotary and the Legend Series by Ravaglioli each offer a contemporary look that matches the high quality of the components. The new range aims to propel customers into the future, preparing the workshop for innovations that are yet to come on the market.
The Tomorrow Series and Legend Series entire range will each be unveiled over the coming months and will meet the needs of any workshop. The first models to be launched in the Tomorrow Series are the SPMA models - electromechanical 2-post lifts with an asymmetric configuration of 3.2 and 3.5 tons, designed to lift vehicles from microcars to medium-sized long-wheelbase vans. The first models to be launched in the Legend Series are the KPX models - electromechanical 2-post lifts with an asymmetric configuration of 3.2 and 3.5 tons, designed to lift vehicles from microcars to medium-sized long-wheelbase vans.
The new range of 2-column lifts will offer customers:
- Reduced installation time by up to 20%. Electronic synchronization avoids the installation and adjustment of the realignment cable. In addition, the three adjustable width positions allow for flexible installation of lifts.
- Quick and easy operation with an obstacle-free working area and operations performed in safety and comfort.
- Minimized routine maintenance thanks to components designed for easy replacement, reducing the cost of operation and the risk of errors on safety-critical components.
- High-quality components that support safety and quality over time.
- Integrated TEq-Link module for workshop connectivity allowing remote monitoring of work cycles, scheduled maintenance alerts and more. (Applicable to selected models)
The entire outline of the lift series has been modernized, giving it softer, more elegant lines. The lift is developed on two asymmetrical columns that are slender and compact, culminating in a carter with a soft, beveled appearance.
