LaserLock Live Mapping System

Product From Chief Automotive Technologies

The Chief Automotive Technologies LaserLock Live Mapping System is the next evolution in computerized collision repair measuring. It includes a laser scanner with out-of-level measuring capabilities; 45 targets with a wide range of attachments; a lockable, portable workstation equipped with dual flat screen monitors and color printer; and exclusive Chief software. LaserLock measures up to 45 individual points on a vehicle simultaneously in real-time, so collision repair technicians can monitor dimensional changes as they occur during pulling. As a result, there is no need to recalibrate after every pull and the risk of putting additional damage into a vehicle is reduced. LaserLock’s out-of-level measuring capabilities make it a perfect choice for the estimating bay, where it can be used with a two-post lift to measure every vehicle, uncover hidden damage and write better estimates, resulting in improved cycle times.

Titan -360 pulling system

Product From Chief Automotive Technologies

Chief Automotive Technologies offers the Titan -360 pulling system. This system features an electric-over-hydraulic system to equalize pressure to all towers in use and provides 10 tons of pulling power at the hook. After a collision, most advanced steel can’t be repaired by traditional pulling or heating methods. The most efficient way to reverse the vehicle damage is through multiple, simultaneous pulls using equalized pressure. This technique applies the same amount of pressure across multiple points of the damaged area at the exact same time, to prevent ripping, tearing, bending or rolling the steel.
