Vehicle safety should be our number one priority whenever we are out on the open road. Moreover, this should also be one of the LTO’s number one priority to keep our roads safe and free from any harm. Earlier this year, Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said he wanted the reactivation of the motor vehicle inspection centers (MVICs) after a series of deadly crashes caused by ill-maintained vehicles, particularly public utility vehicles and buses.
Thankfully, there has been numerous MVICs opening-up shop to serve this need. One of them is Opus, an LTO certified Motor Vehicle Inspection Center in Sta. Rosa Laguna. They are responsible for inspecting and maintaining our cars in top shape and keeping them roadworthy, and the shop primarily uses vehicle testing equipment from Beissbarth.
Beissbarth, a German auto service company founded in 1899 in Munich, is one of the main local suppliers of vehicle testing equipment. They have been manufacturing precision measuring equipment for OEM car manufacturers and IAM automotive workshops worldwide for over 100-years.
This includes 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 tires still have the needed road grip or are already eroded. They also have headlight testers, which ensures that a car has enough illumination at night to cover a wide area of the road without blinding oncoming vehicles, and air conditioning testing equipment to keep the air inside your car cool and clean.
In addition to the core competencies of wheel alignment, brake testing, test lanes, and headlight testers Beissbarth also offers tire changers, wheel balancers, air conditioning servicing equipment, tire diagnosis, and lifts.
Beissbarth products can be found at MVIS centers like Opus in Sta. Rosa Laguna, Autoreach in BF Las Pinas and BSB Junrose Auto Parts in Sta Cruz Manila.
