Sept. 15, 2016—Chief Automotive announced Wednesday the release of its new Cam Scan HD, the first computerized measuring system in North America designed to identify and document all collision damage on heavy-duty vehicles.

“Our new Cam Scan HD computerized measuring system provides the precise, accurate measurements technicians need to eliminate any guesswork when analyzing frame damage on heavy-duty vehicles,” Lee Daugherty, heavy-duty sales manager for Chief, said. “With all the engineering advancements being made in the vehicle design and manufacturing process, shops need the precision of our computerized measuring system to properly repair collision-damaged vehicles. Cam Scan HD is also faster than other measuring methods and provides documentation of damage and completed repairs.”

With the Cam Scan HD, technicians can more easily measure and compare two points anywhere on a  vehicle. It can be used for frame rail analysis, axle and trailer alignment analysis and even to measure areas that the centerline gauge and string method cannot.

“Printed, verifiable repair documents are an important part of today’s shop function that will only grow more critical in the future,” Daugherty said. “Heavy-duty shops need to transition to the accuracy of a computerized measuring system to improve repair accuracy, save time and money, and satisfy the insurance industry’s growing requests for documentation.”

The Cam Scan HD includes a laptop loaded with PanoVision software, mouse, 32-inch monitor and printer housed in a portable locking cabinet. More information can be found on the Chief website.
