Body Work Frame Machine Up

Exactly What is an Auto Body Frame Machine?

A frame straightening machine consists of a platform large enough to hold a car, SUV or pickup truck, and two or three upright posts or towers that can be rotated 360-degrees and moved along the platform perimeter to work on different areas of a vehicle frame. The most up to date machines use computerized line-of-sight lasers or sonic senders to assess a car’s frame and diagnose how much damage it has sustained. These diagnostics are used to determine whether the vehicle is repairable, and to¬†provide an estimate¬†of how long the repair should take, which is necessary to calculate the cost. This on-board measuring equipment is also used to ensure that a repair is performed accurately.
