Dec. 20, 2013—Chief Automotive Technologies and Elektron announced on Thursday that they will show new collision repair equipment for aluminum and “exotic” materials at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Expo 2014.

“Collision repair technicians and their managers are nervous about the new vehicles,” said Mike Cranfill, vice president of collision for Vehicle Service Group, the parent company of Chief and Elektron. “At NADA Expo 2014, Chief and Elektron will feature the equipment and training technicians need to return collision-damaged vehicles to pre-accident condition, regardless of whether the vehicle components are made of steel, aluminum, boron, or other materials.”

Some items that will be at the expo include the “LaserLock live mapping” system, a full line of tool boards, and a new family of aluminum repair equipment, including MIG and MAG welders, aluminum stud welders, and an aluminum repair station complete with dent pullers and dedicated accessories.

More information about the new items can be found at Chief's website or by calling 800.445.9262.
