Spanesi Americas TOUCH Virtual system set for NACE 2015 debut

Spanesi Americas is set to premiere a new technology at NACE that the company says will allow technicians to go hands-free.

The system, TOUCH Virtual, utilizes a pair of glasses similar to Google glasses to put everything techs need front and centre in their vision, without the need to turn to a PC or mobile device.

Tom McGee, Business Development Manager of Spanesi Americas, demonstrates a few of the new system’s capabilities in a short video. “The entire time they’re working on the car with the measuring system they’re seeing a computer screen with their measurements, or it can be showing them the OEM repair procedures for the vehicle they’re working on as well,” says McGee in the video. McGee also demonstrates how the system is controlled with a touch pad, and allows technicians to call up any information they need, noting how it makes technicians more ef­ficient and more productive.

TOUCH Virtual also records video and photography of the work being performed, allowing the collision repair facility to fully document the repair process. Tim Morgan is the Managing Director of Spanesi Americas. In an interview with Collision Repair magazine, Morgan discussed what he sees as some of the primary advantages of TOUCH Virtual. “You can call up repair procedures, use the TOUCH system, go to I-CAR, even access your estimating resources and at the same time document the repair order,” he says. “You can document both the damage and the process. “When it comes to blueprinting, it’s absolutely priceless. You can shorten the whole repair time.” The new TOUCH Virtual system will be officially released at NACE 2015, taking place in Detroit from July 21 to 25, 2015.
