Measure in all weather: the10-AV700 AccuVision-3D Chassis Measuring System

It has been a strange year for collision repair facilities across much of USA. natural disasters -- from floods, wildfires and unexpected hail storms -- have had facilities struggling to accomodate more vehicles in shorter periods of time than ever before.
With overflow vehicles often left out on the yard, many repairers have been forced to adopt new strategies in order to decrease their cycle times. Ever responsive to the needs of the market, some manufacturers it seems, are starting to pick-up on the value of creating tools designed to allow for some procedures to be performed outside.
Arslan Automotive has announcement of the arrival of the 10-AV700 AccuVision-3D Chassis Measuring System, which it describes as the next generation system, and includes a raft of technologies that are specifically designed to allow for outdoor operations.

The Detail Guardz Dirtlock Bucket Insert - Prevent Swirl Marks

The Turbine Dirtlock bucket insert is the most powerful defense against swirl-marks and scratches. Each time your wash mitt touches the car you pickup millions of dirt particles. When you dunk your hand in the wash bucket they will float around, waiting to re-attach to the glove and scratch the vehicles paintwork. Effectively you are sanding the surface and dulling the finish.

The Turbine Dirtlock separates any debris and dirt particles that accumulate in your wash bucket. It does this by utilizing fluid dynamics and creating a suction effect in a downward motion. Each time you move your wash mitt in the bucket, it pulls debris and traps it under the screen. This gives you clean, filtered water to re-use and safely wash your vehicle with, without the fear of scratching the paint and dulling the surface.
