Maintenance

How often should the measuring systems and auto collision repair systems be serviced and calibrated? Can this be done on site?

Electronic tram gauges should be calibrated every six months. 3D measuring system calibration should take place every two years. In case of damage, calibration also has to be done after repair. Collision repair equipment has to be serviced once a year. Autorobot’s local dealer provides service and calibration on site: https://www.autorobot.com/support-and-service/

Vehicle fastening and support

How are different vehicle makes and models fastened to Autorobot machines?

Vehicles that have pinch welds on the underbody are fastened with Autorobot’s standard one-bolt chassis fasteners (patented). Vehicles without pinch weld can be fastened (in most cases) from the upper part of the rocker panel. We also have vehicle specific fastening sets for vehicles with frame, or ones that have no pinch welds. Please see further details of different fastening options in vehicle fastening and support

How is sufficient support provided for pull and/or counter-pulls?

Autorobot has a wide product selection of versatile support equipment, from additional fastening sets to adjustable bearers. A counter-pull can be created with the help of another pulling tower. Please see further details of fastening and support options in vehicle fastening and support

General questions

Are Autorobot accessories compatible, so that I don’t need to buy specific accessories for each bench model?

Most of the fastening and support products are compatible with any of the Autorobot straightening benches. Some of these products may be designed to some specific model and in that case compatibility might be limited to specific model/models. Our Tram Bar type measuring systems can be used with any bench model.
