  • Get accurate measurements the first time, every time.
  • Monitor up to 12 live measurement points and see results as you pull.
  • Save time and money by avoiding rework and stopping to fix hidden issues.

Features

Shark Beam and Emitter Diagram

Award-Winning Ultrasound Technology

The Shark uses ultrasound technology to collect measurements and track your repairs. Emitters on the probes are attached to the vehicle at specific points and send ultrasonic signals that are received by high-frequency microphones located in the light-weight extruded aluminum beam. The results are compared to manufacturer specs and any problem areas are identified automatically. This leaves the operator free to concentrate on straightening, not on how to collect measurements.




How the Shark Works

Shark Accessory and Print Out Shark Beam and Probes
  • The Shark relies on microphones located in the beam and ultrasound emitter probes placed at pre-defined points on the vehicle
  • The beam is made of light-weight aluminum, goes anywhere, and is light enough for one technician to handle
  • The Shark does not require a level rack, level car or level beam
  • The technician has the option of viewing digital images of each attachment point and following the step-by-step guides for connecting accessories and probes
  • The probes can be placed closely together and still maintain accurate readings - a feature not found on competitive systems
  • The Shark console provides a live depiction of these control points and their variance from manufacturer specs with vivid, easy-to-read graphics
  • During repair, these measurements are displayed as they change, allowing for extremely accurate, "right the first time" pulls and eliminating the back-and-forth process associated with competitive models
  • Upper-body and under-hood measurements are obtained with ease using the included accessory, eliminating the need for any mechanical measuring devices or bridges
  • An optional, second upper-body measuring accessory further improves job times
  • Before and after-repair measurements are captured for reporting purposes
  • PDF’s can be saved and e-mailed to the customer’s insurance company
