FixLine includes three different layouts and repair processes, which are segmented based on the amount of damage and the number of panels involved in an accident.

The FixLine conveyor allows a continuous workflow throughout the day, allowing a shop to use approximately 30 per cent fewer technicians than a conventional shop to repair the same number of cars per day.
