One can easily be forgiven for not considering that the use of a full-size alignment bench for light bodywork not only ties up this expensive equipment, but slows down workflow in a bodyshop.
And, since several accidents happen at low speeds, which do not cause structural damage, Car-O-Liner Australia’ s Speed lifting platform is a ideal tool for the repair of superficial sheet metal damage.
The unit uses a draw aligner, which can be adjusted to any position. Self-locking, this can be mounted easily in just the right spot.
Importantly, Speed allows the user to perform other collision damage repairs in the same setup and complements full-sized benches, already present in many bodyshops.
Ergonomically designed, the bench is easy to use. Accessibility is good, with no ramps or posts around the vehicle.
Offering a lifting capacity of 2,500 kg, Speed can be used with several of today’s vehicles.
All the accessories needed to get the job done in light bodywork can be used with Speed.
The unit is compatible with accessories developed for Car-O-Liner’s larger benches.
Hence, accessories bought for today’s Speed can be used for other Speed units that the user may purchase in the future.
This not only future-proofs a buyer’s investment in Speed, but gives the user greater flexibility in bodyship operations.
And, by installing multiple Speed units, Bodyshop owners are able to expand operations, using the same draw aligners and other accessories.
Speed is easy to install usually taking less than an hour and is fixed with the use of dynabolts.
Speed is available with a snap-on drawaligner for use on one end, or on both ends (Speed Plus).
The moveable lifting arms have vertically adjustable lifting pads.
The removable bench arms can be adjusted vertically, for easy clamping and mounting. Optional lifting pad extensions are available for greater flexibility.
