Blackhawk now offers Shark 3 platinum and standard models. These models utilize a toolbox-style cabinet to organize, protect and store.
“The Shark 3 is the industry’s best electronic frame measuring system so it only makes sense for shops to protect their investment with a productivity-enhancing toolbox-style cabinet,” said David Zinkiewicz, product manager for Blackhawk. “In addition, with the state-of-the-art software available with the platinum model, shops will be able to increase the efficiency and performance of their Shark 3.”
The Shark 3 platinum model utilizes a toolbox-style cabinet with four locking chrome spoke casters to keep the unit secure during the 12-control point live active measuring process. The software features a unique interactive, image-based vehicle database that includes VIN decoding with the use of a scanner. The 27″ monitor provides more informed decisions during the repair process. It comes with a two-year vehicle specifications subscription.
The Shark 3 standard model features an eight-control point live active measuring option with a 22″ LCD display. It also includes a one-year warranty and one-year vehicle specifications subscription.
The Blackhawk Shark 3 uses ultrasound technology to collect measurements and track 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 lightweight extruded aluminum beam. The results are then compared to manufacturer specifications and any problem areas are identified immediately, letting the operator focus on straightening rather than on collecting measurements.
