Vector™ The Perfect Blend of Accuracy and Affordability

Vector Mapping System

Detecting Misalignment in a Vehicle's Structure

Whether detecting misalignment in a vehicle's structure or verifying repairs have eliminated the damage, the Vector computerized measuring system can do the job. Vector integrates the precision of laser scanning with a computerized data base for unmatched accuracy in collision repair and analysis. In addition to showing extent of collision damage, Vector monitors progress throughout the repair and verifies the vehicle's structure is correctly aligned. Three separate reports verify the vehicle's structural condition by showing overhead diagrams that display center line, datum line and datum height measurements, offering indisputable evidence that the repairs made were not only needed…but returned the vehicle frame to its pre-collision condition.

Vector™ System Measures on the Principle of Triangulation

The system's electronic Body Scanner houses Laser Lights that reflect off of revolving mirrors toward light-reflective Targets (each bearing a unique code) that are suspended from a vehicle's reference points. The Body Scanner houses photo sensors that identify the angle of revolving laser reflections. This information is transferred to the computer which performs the triangulation and Target identification functions.
