Matrix Partners with Vortex for Manufacturing, Development
Aug. 6, 2019—Matrix Electronic Measuring on Tuesday announced a new manufacturing and development partnership with the Vortex Corporation. Vortex is a U.S. manufacturer of machinery and components with operations in Europe and Asia.
The Matrix Wand is a hand-held 3D electronic blueprinting and repair measuring device for structural damage. It uses 3D imagery and software to assess structural collision damages against factory repair data. Estimators and technicians can use the images to aid in the measuring process.
"Vortex brings economies of scale and product development capabilities ..." said Steve Lyon, Matrix Wand's president, in a press release. "This partnership has allowed us to expedite the launch of the Fenderbolt platform, which is now available to customers."
Fenderbolt is a cloud-based service that incorporates Matrix's 3D measuring software, on-demand training with I-CAR credits, system usage reporting for shop owners, automatic updates, and the Mitchell database.
