Shark uses ultrasound technology to acquire data. The emitter probes send signals which are received by high frequency microphones located in the beam.
Shark provides a printed or stored report documenting the condition of the vehicle after your repair.
Shark works with your existing repair equipment. Shark brings information to your fingertips, saves time researching and obtaining data.
Shark uses ultrasound technology to acquire data. The emitters on the probe send signals which are received by high frequency microphones located in the beam. This whole process leaves the operator free to concentrate on straightening to specifications quickly--not on how to measure. The Shark system uses a lightweight extruded aluminum beam, easily handled by one person. It is positioned under the vehicle without the need for being level or parallel. It is connected by a communications cable to a rugged console made for body shop use.
A small number of universal attachments are contained in two drawers with vacuum molded inserts to instantly identify their proper placement.
After selecting the vehicle to be measured, the computer prompts the collision repair specialist through the vehicle measurement process.
The computer directs our technician to use a specific accessory and shows the point location on the color monitor. These precision machined accessories attach positively to the point to be measured.
A probe then snaps into place magnetically saving time and improving accuracy. These durable, reliable probes have no moving parts. This positive mechanical connection is a key to repeatable accuracy.
The probe is connected to a socket in the Shark beam. After selecting the other points to be measured, simply press the button and you measure all of those points, simultaneously. Measuring multiple points at one time is an essential part of the repair process. Many times these points are very close together. This photograph shows how Shark can easily handle a very complex measuring situation in one easy step.
Measuring upperbody points with Shark is easy. You can even add your own points for comparison and save them for future reference. Shark provides upperbody measuring capability without having to construct a "bridge".
