Chief Introduces Holding Package for Aluminum, Exotic Materials
June 25, 2014—Chief Automotive Technologies announced monday it released its new Structural Holding Package for aluminum and other “exotic” materials.
The new package has more than 50 components that can be combined in a variety of ways and allows shop operators to use their existing frame racks. The pieces come on a rolling tool board.
“Sectioning is recommended as part of the repair procedures for many modern vehicles. In order to do this properly, it is important to hold the vehicle at strategic locations along the body so it does not shift out of place during the repair,” said Richard Perry, global repair product manager for Chief parent company Vehicle Service Group. “The new Chief Structural Holding Package works with a Chief frame rack to provide these additional holding points. The system also can be used when pulling steel frames to distribute pressure evenly. This reduces the risk of inflicting further damage and makes it easier to return a vehicle to OEM specifications.”
Chief’s Structural Holding package is also included in the Ford 2015 F-150 Collision Repair Program.
