How Frame Straightening Machines Work
Auto body shops have specialized frame straightening machines capable of repairing damaged vehicle frames. When you watch the accompanying video, you’ll see a frame straightener at an auto collision center.
The damaged vehicle is placed on a platform. It features two towers, which are upright posts, and a hydraulic ram. Clamps are mounted on the vehicle to hold it still, and chains connect the frame to the machine. Using hydraulics, the towers pull the chains in precise ways to gently and slowly straighten the frame until it’s been restored back to factory specifications.
