Elektron Releases Two New Aluminum-Capable Stud Welders
April 11, 2014—Elektron introduced on Thursday a pair of new aluminum-capable stud welders for use in removing dents from aluminum hoods and body panels.
The MultSpot M22 AL is designed specifically for aluminum repair and is a featured component of the Elektron MultiTool Aluminum Dent Repair Station. The MultiSpot M25 AL is a high-output stud welder that can also be used on mild steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel and brass surfaces.
Both the M22 AL and the MultiTool Aluminum Dent Repair Station are included in the Ford 2015 F-150 Collision Repair Program.
“Industry buzz is focused on the Ford 2015 ‘aluminum’ F-150 that will be available later this year,” explains Mickey Swartz, director of global product management, collision, for Elektron parent company Vehicle Service Group (VSG). “But there are millions of aluminum hoods and body panels on vehicles already in use. Elektron stud welders aren’t just for shops that are preparing to service the new F-150. They’re essential equipment for anyone interested in properly repairing the vehicles their customers have now.”
