Learn more about Frame Straightening from Spectrum Collision

Although frame straightening may sound complicated, it is pretty standard and easy to carry out. Accidents have become an inevitable occurrence on roads even though several mechanisms are in place to prevent such. Nevertheless, frames get bent in almost all vehicle accidents on the road. After these accidents, frame straightening becomes a compulsory procedure in auto body repair. 

What is a Frame?

A frame is an essential part of a car’s structure to which numerous components are riveted, bolted, or welded; the vehicle’s frame supports the entire vehicle. Frame designs come in three main types, namely:

  • Body-on-frame or ladder frame
  • Unibody frame
  • Spaceframe

How does a Frame Machine Work?

Before the repair begins, the vehicle is correctly strapped to the platform or stage. The next step is to use the chains to connect the frame and the posts. The car is joined to a stage with posts surrounding it. These posts move around the vehicle, applying laser sensors to take measurements of the vehicle according to its factory specification. hydraulic system helps  

Is Bending Enough to Repair the Frame?

For example, you crush a can of soda and try to restore it to its original state. There is a chance of getting it back to its original condition, but it will suffer some deformities. It would have gotten weaker, most especially at the point where it folded.

Your vehicle’s frame might be restored with the help of a frame straightener. Further repairs may be required when the damage is much; a new metal sheet may be welded to the surface to cover up the damage. However, if the damage is beyond repair, one may need to scrap the car. It is easier to find a replacement for other vehicle structural components.
