State of the Art Production Equipment

Our production department is truly the heart of our business, and as such has been outfitted to promote efficiency, quality, accuracy, and safety in each segment of the repair process. From the initial inspection to the final detailing, Mainline Autobody is equipped with the finest equipment available. Our equipment list meets or exceeds the minimum requirements established by both the Collision Industry Conference (CIC), one of the leading industry trade associations, and TECH-COR. We have built our facilities for high production and quicker turn times than the competition. We feel that this is attributed to the ease with which we can handle significant repair jobs without the bottlenecks that can typically place a stranglehold on production. Given the opportunity, we are proud of our ability to return our customer’s car back to them quickly.

Frame & Unibody Equipment

With customer satisfaction as our commitment, and productivity as our objective, our European Car-O-Liner Repair System allows our technicians to repair any damaged vehicle to its pre-accident condition, time after time, day after day. We return each and every vehicle back to
the manufacturer’s specifications using the Car-O-Tronic Computerized Measuring System. The Car-O-Tronic system is the fastest, most accurate computerized measuring system on the market today. It guides the entire repair process and performs automatic centering, measuring and documentation. It is photo based, integrated with the world’s largest vehicle database and fully compatible with any alignment system. The end result is your vehicle is restored to its original manufacturer’s specifications.

Paint Mixing/Color Matching

For the best possible finish and color match, we have installed the Envirobase mixing system from PPG Industries, one of the finest manufacturers of urethane paint products in the world. We have integrated this system with a web-based computer database for accurate paint formula retrieval. This system along with highly trained staff enables us to guarantee perfect color matches every time. Our refinish department takes great pride in providing quality finishes suitable for any and all makes and models on the road today.
