Dataliner’s Background

During 1970’s Nike Hydraulics AB a Swedish Company founded in 1924 developed a Universal Frame Machine called “Dataliner”. This portable bench was using hydraulic pumps and 10 tons rams pushing on chains anchored to the bench (I.e. “Vector pulling”). By using a Laser Aided Square Angle around the car measurements could be taken very accurately.

Dataliner was one of the first manufactured Universal Frame Machine in the world for unitized cars. Universal is opposite Dedicated Frame Machines where a set of jigs are needed for each car model (makes it very expensive). In 1978 the first Dataliner under the name of Nicator (The winner in Latin) was sold in USA.

In 1982 Nicator Inc. was established as a distributor for North America. In 1987 the company changed name to Dataliner Inc. as well as the name Dataliner for their Frame Machines.

Dataliner has over the years developed Drive-on Frame Machines for easier loading of the car and also Drive-on on Scissors Lift for convenient working height. The latest innovation is Dataliner ECHO 500 on a scissors lift utilizing both Vector and Dozer Pulling.

In addition to the Frame Machines Dataliner has designed a series of Chassis Clamps for hard-to-anchor Chassis like Mercedes, BMW, Audi., Honda and Acura as well as for full frame vehicles like Pickup Trucks and Sport Utilities Vehicles.

Dataliner offers two different kinds of Universal Laser Measuring Systems “Dataliner Fan Laser Combimeter + “ and “Dataliner Line Laser Measuring System - A Laser Aided Square Angle”. Both systems can utilize Galaxy CD-ROM Software with over 4,500 vehicle measurements (“Data Charts”).  The software enables you to print damaged diagnostic as well as after repaired measurements.

The main welding units are manufactured by Yashima Corporation, Japan, which has been the world leader in spot welders and spot guns since 1977. Data Welder has developed welding techniques and procedures that are included in available training seminars. Data Welder has been providing technical and financial support for the I-CAR Education Foundation and is involved with Collision Repair 2000 and I-Car's Uniform Procedures for Collision Repair.
