Toronto, Ontario — Canadian manufacturer Arslan Automotive’s AccuVision-3D was named one of 2020’s Kool Tools by largest national trade association for collision repair facilities in the United States, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists of the U.S.A. (SCRS).
The SCRS represents more than 6,000 U.S. collision repair facilities and 41 affiliated PBE organizations.
According to Aaron Schulenburg, the organization’s executive director, choosing products for inclusion on the list is a significant undertaking.
“It really is a highlight of tools and equipment that caught the eyes of our education committee members during the SEMA Show, and that we wished to share with our audience.”
Schulenburg adds that: “SCRS doesn’t actually endorse any products or services.”
Members were sent a five-minute video about the Accuvision-3D, in which the SCRS recommended the tool as a dual-purpose system for estimating and blueprinting, both pre-repair and post-repair.
During the video, Gurarslan shares his perspective on why the measuring tool has been able to capture the interests of so many collision technicians.
“My whole objective was to make life easy for guys at the bodyshop-level. We’ve built something that is simple and stupid,” jokes Gurarslan. “The software is the complicated part.”
“The car doesn’t need to be flat to be measured. It could be on its side,” says Gurarslan. “For all I care, it could be on a rotisserie, and we could still measure it!”
AccuVision-3D, Arslan Automotive Canada’s much-touted 3-D measuring system, was introduced to the North American market in June 2017. The system needs no targets, lasers, arms, magnets, cables or adapters. Measurements typically take less than 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
Arslan Automotive states that the system can be used even if the floors are uneven. The company says the system works if the car is on a jig or bench, on the floor or on a lift in any position.
“The car doesn’t need to be flat to be measured. It could be on its side,” says Gurarslan in the video. “For all I care, it could be on a rotisserie, and we could still measure it!”
