AUTEC Car Wash Systems manufactures precision-built, all-stainless-steel, soft-touch, touch-free, and hybrid car wash systems. The company is committed to reliable products, quality service, and the ongoing success of its customers.
What’s New/Best Seller • The In-Bay Express Car Wash.
Advantages/Features • Built around the successful EV1 combination machine, customers can choose an all soft-touch wash, an all touch-free wash, or a combination of both. Traditionally, in-bay automatics have limited capability because of the high number of functions being done on-board — creating extra passes for the machine. The new system does most of the functions off board, without the need for a conveyor system, enabling the operator to increase throughput by up to three times, while still enjoying the simplicity and favorable economics of an automatic rollover. The system can wash a car in 90 seconds or less, with a top capacity of up to 30 vehicles per hour.
Customer/Operator Support • A network of distribution, installation, and maintenance throughout the United States and abroad is available.
Price • Available upon request.
