Cam-Scan-HD_-_2016.jpgMeasure, check, pull. Measure, re-measure, pull, check. For those of us in the auto body repair industry, this was a typical day in the life of a technician. Fast forward to the present and we now have electronic measuring systems like Chief’s Laser Lock™. Electronic measuring systems make technician’s lives easier by taking out the guess work; showing exactly where repair is needed. Unfortunately, the guess and check game is still being played in the heavy-duty repair industry. But Chief is changing all that. The Chief Cam Scan HD is an all new photographic imaging and measuring tool for HD shops.

In today's world of heavy-duty repairs, it's more important than ever to quickly and accurately document the pre and post repair condition of the vehicle. The Chief Cam Scan HD's PanoVision Technology will revolutionize how shop’s plan, verify and document repair. Since the vast majority of heavy duty vehicles are built on ladder frames, there is little to no OEM specs available. This makes repairs tricky to perform, but just as difficult to identify. Whether it is frame rail analysis, cab openings analysis or axle and trailer alignment, Chief's Cam Scan HD will help you diagnose damage and verify repairs in minutes. The Cam Scan HD gives your shop abilities never before offered in the heavy duty industry:

  • Effectively diagnose, document and communicate vehicle damage for unparalleled estimate accuracy.
  • Provides before and after repair documentation to give you and your customer peace of mind.
  • Reduce repair liability by diagnosing damage and post repair confirmation, supported by patented stereophotogrammic images of customer's vehicle.
  • PanoVision Technology - Allows you to measure large trucks, tractors and trailers with millimeter precision.

The Cam Scan comes with everything you need to diagnose, document and verify repair. The custom 3D camera allows you to capture your vehicle in high resolution, the sleek cabinet equipped with oversize casters allows for easy movement around the shop. A high resolution monitors and pre programmed laptop to run measuring software, even an on board printer for fast and easy paper estimates. From beginning to end the Chief Cam Scan HD plays a key role in getting vehicles in and out of your shop.
