Previous response provided by CCC/MOTORS 6608 "IP Explanation Estimated Release Date: Closed Proposed Resolution: MOTOR stated: There is no industry standard estimated work time to be used as "set-up" for Frame Straightening Equipment, as there are many types used in the field. An example of this could be a "Dedicated Bench System" versus a "Laser Target Type System." The difference in set-up time can vary significantly due to Rocker Moldings or other types of trim that may need to be removed to access mounting points or measuring points. MOTOR cannot determine the type of Frame Measuring Equipment a particular shop is using; therefore, an on-the-spot evaluation is the best way of determining an estimated work time. No changes required"
