Advantages of Body Loc Elevated Anchoring System
LOAD AND ANCHOR OUR SYSTEM 4 MINUTES 39 SECONDS AS SHOWN ON CD. VERSUS MOVING THE VEHICLE TO A MACHINE AND ANCHORING IT. (HOW MANY MEN AND MINUTES DOES IT TAKE TO MOVE A CRIPPLED VEHICLE TO, AND UP ON A MACHINE?)
ABOUT THE SAME - WITH OUR SYSTEM THERE IS NO CLIMBING UP AND DOWN ON THE MACHINE WHICH MAY CAUSE FATIGUE OR A FALL.
WORKING THE METAL WHILE PULLING
MUCH EASIER AND QUICKER WITH THE VEHICLE AT A COMFORTABLE WORKING HEIGHT ELEVATED OFF OF THE WORKING SURFACE.
THIS IS WHERE OUR SYSTEM REALLY SURPASSES OTHER SYSTEMS!
REDUCE CYCLE TIME - INCREASE PROFIT
KEEP AND ATTRACT QUALITY BODYMEN WITH FAST AND EASY TO USE EQUIPMENT!!
JIM CHURCH SPLICED THE TWO RAILS ON THIS CAR. THEY HAVE A "DRIVE ON" RACK, BUT JIM SAID "IT WAS MUCH QUICKER AND EASIER TO USE "BODY LOC" IN HIS STALL."
HE ALSO SAID, "YOU HAVE MORE ROOM FOR THE MEASURING SYSTEM (GENESIS) AND LOOK AT THE UNOBSTRUCTED ACCESS OF THIS SYSTEM!"
I CAN'T IMAGINE TRYING TO DO THIS CAR ON A RACK!!!
"I WOULD HAVE TIED UP THE RACK FOR 2 DAYS OR MORE"
Save Time - Increase Profit
Let us explain why the Body Loc Elevated System ends up taking half the time that any Drive-On Machine takes to do the disassembly, pulling, and reassembly. Taking the suspension, inner panels, core supports, etc. off a vehicle is going to be much faster in the body man's stall, elevated 10" off the floor which is a comfortable working height - versus the same work on a Rack. After you are done pulling, reassembly will also be much faster in a body man's stall, where his tools are and at the same comfortable working height.
Moving a crippled car or just moving a car that runs, takes time. Think about how much time it takes in your shop. Time it and remember if four men are required to move the car, multiply that by 4!!
In most cases, if the job is a light pull, the pulling can be done before the car is on the rack. If it is a heavy pull, look at our CD. It shows a body man in real time (no studio stunts), elevating and anchoring a car in 4 1/2 minutes.
Nothing else is that fast!!
Why use a rack to anchor a car versus the floor?? It's the prestige of the expensive machine. The car doesn't know what's anchoring it as long as it's solid and lets face it a cement floor has less flex than a steel machine, also the chain doesn't know how expensive the machine is that is pulling it, as long as it can pull at any angle 360-degrees around the car. Some racks don't have that capability.
You can use as many pulling posts with our system as you want!!
Quality!!! Which machine can you get the best quality from? That is determined by the body man and the measuring methods that he uses. With our system any measuring system can be used "as is". Most racks require you to raise the car so you will have room for the measuring system. The best way to do this is by using ramps to drive the car on. However, you see most racks with the car supported by the pinch welds with the suspension hanging. No matter what anybody says, that cannot be the proper way to correct the damage because a car flexes as much as ¾” from end to end. How could you pull the door openings and then set it back down and expect the doors to fit? How are you going to gauge the front with it sagging? Our competition says that cars at the factory are built on jigs supported at the torque box. This can be true, however, the weight (engine, transmission. Suspension, fenders, hood, bumpers, etc.)are all added after the inner panel and core supports are welded on. Thus, No Sagging! If you pull a door opening and have the door fitted while the pinch weld supports the car, when you set the car down on the suspension the door will not fit! If you put on a fender or quarter panel while the pinch weld supports the car, when you set it down the lines will change!
Now consider this, remember how complicated cars are, even good measuring systems don't have measurements for all points, and a body man can miss correcting a spot. If he repaired the car on a rack, and he is now in his stall fitting parts, does he move the car back to the rack or does he fudge the job?? With the Body-Loc System in his stall, the car is left loaded until all parts are welded and installed. So if he misses a pull, it's simple and quick to roll the post over and make another pull.
It is a fact that "cycle time" is important to the insurance company, the body man's paycheck, and the shop's bottom line!!
Keeping the car in the body man's stall will save you 50% of your time on the dismantling, pulling, and reassembly operation!!
