Super Rotax is the flagship of the Globaljig Presented by Chief line of certified structural repair systems. Super Rotax has OEM-certified universal fixtures that can be used to measure and hold at the same time. With Globaljig's universal fixtures, there's no need to constantly buy or rent dedicated fixtures, so cycle times are improved and costs are reduced.

Super Rotax offers effortless loading with removable ramps for unlimited access to the vehicle, as well as 360-degree, 10-ton pulling. The bench provides 5'9 of uninhibited working height with 11,000 lbs. of lifting capacity. It is compatible with electronic measuring.

"Super Rotax is very easy to learn how to operate and to set up," says Bob Holland, director of collision in North and South America for Chief parent company Vehicle Service Group. "Technicians can anchor a vehicle in its fixtures more quickly than those on other systems, so they can get to work faster. Plus, Super Rotax is versatile. It can be used both as a fixture bench or as a traditional pulling machine using pinch weld clamps for cars or truck-holding clamps for SUVs and light-duty trucks, depending on the job at hand."

The Northeast 2016 Automotive Service Show runs March 18-20 at the Meadowlands in New Jersey. Chief will have additional equipment on display in booth #547.

Globaljig products are made in Italy and are sold exclusively by Chief distributors in North America under the Globaljig Presented by Chief brand. Globaljig has approvals from Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati and Tesla Motors.
