During our daily work as mechanics and set-up engineers in autosport teams and automotive industry, we ran into  recurring wheel alignment problems. For example, it was never quite clear if a vehicle was aligned correctly, the wheel alignment equipment on site was not available when needed or it was not working properly.

In addition, we found that most wheel alignment equipment has compromises that can lead to misinterpretation of the alignment data or are not easy to use to make targeted improvements to handling and road behavior.

We decided to develop a mobile, compact and very easy-to-use wheel alignment device, that would allow us to do a perfect job and would help us to professionalize our work.

This was the start of TRIGOLIGN. 



In our search for a mobile, accurate and reproducible wheel alignment system, we reviewed several existing equipment. We found that most mobile devices don’t offer 4-wheel alignment, and only measure total toe, not in respect to the rear axle. For measuring camber, mostly another extra tool was needed. Not very practical.

More professional workshops equipment showed obvious drawbacks, like none-mobility, relatively high costs, extra space needed for placement and the preparation time needed. This equipment offers measurement-data to check for defects in suspension components, conceptually captured by the chassis design (Castor, KPI). But even if a trained operator has the necessary knowledge and experience to use this, most of the equipment can’t be used on location, a test- or racing-track.

Another issue was the lack of measurement range, precision and reproducibility, which we concluded from the many product tests we did with competing product. Problems usually caused by unevenly distributed clamping forces, inaccurate placement of the devices on the wheels, and the use of different devices per wheel, resulting in an unpredictable negative impact on the measurement values.

For these issues we developed special product-requirements and started to design and test the first prototypes that finally led to our first product TRIGOLIGN® PITBOX. 





When analyzing existing systems and user practices, we started defining product-requirements, like absolute mobility, fast and precise working-method, optimal flexibility, affordability and practicability.

These requirements were used to develop the TRIGOLIGN® wheel-alignment system, with software that can be used off-line everywhere and working together with a lightweight, compact, and durable measuring device.

In 2020, the first prototypes were developed in close cooperation with PRAE Vehicle Dynamics2021 was used to optimize the electronics, test the device for safety and incorporate user-friendly functions. Besides the product was intensively tested in cooperation with Mertens Motorsport during the Nürburgring Endurance Series, and Into Race Control during historic racing events.

By the end of 2021, TRIGOLIGN® PITBOX was found to be CE-compliant and the first products were sold to OEMs and TIER 1 and 2 customers. 

January 2022, TRIGOLIGN BV was founded. February 2022 production started of the first product, TRIGOLIGN® PITBOX. During production we continue to develop and improve our products, including the software and additional items. We do this based on feedback provided by our customers.

In this way, we can improve and enhance the user-friendliness and usability of our product and related accessories and software.
