IAEA hosts Car-o-liner at Ace Autobody

The Institute of Automotive Engineers & Assessors (IAEA) hosted a very informative evening on current and new collision repair equipment techniques at Ace Autobody in Fairview, on Thursday night.

Stuart Alexander of Car-o-liner demonstrated the company’s Point X diagnostic measuring tool and, PNP 90, the company’s universal riveting tool to a packed audience.


PointXTM derives its strength from new generation technology, both in the hand-held measuring
arm and software. The lightweight, efficient and easy to use measuring arm, in combination with Car-O-Data, the world’s most comprehensive vehicle database, gives you an affordable measuring system that allows you to accurately and quickly target measuring points.

Constructed with a carbon fibre material, the PointX* measuring arm is extremely lightweight making it easy for technicians to manoeuvre around the vehicles to be measured, whether they are on a lift, on an alignment bench or right on the floor.
Not only is PointX easy to operate, it is driven with Vision2 Software, a photobased system that guides the entire repair process. With our comprehensive measuring data, Vision2 and PointX your technicians will be able to provide highest quality diagnosis to your customers.
