Repair Aluminum Hood and Panel Dents with New Elektron Stud Welders

MADISON, Ind., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Elektron introduces two powerful
new aluminum-capable stud welders for use in removing dents from aluminum hoods
and body panels. The MultiSpot 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.”

Both the M22 AL and the M25 AL use capacitor discharge technology which delivers
very brief but high current density to break through surface oxidation and
insulation without damaging the sheet metal below. They can weld up to 6 mm
diameter aluminum or titanium stud bolts onto clean, bare, unpainted aluminum
surfaces. Both welders come complete with a stud gun and two-clamp ground

Elektron’s M25 AL stud welder offers several design advantages over the M22 AL
and other products. Its two-capacitor design is faster, providing more
consistent welds and higher energy output at lower power inputs. The M25 AL
features Integrated Power Factor Correction (PFC) technology that reduces energy
waste, making the product easier on the power grid and on the wallet. It can be
used with aluminum, mild steel, stainless steel, brass, copper and titanium

The M22 AL, M25 AL and MultiTool Aluminum Dent Repair Station are part of
Elektron’s new family of collision repair equipment designed specifically to fix
aluminum vehicle components. The line also includes the MultiMig 511 and
MultiMig 522 MIG/MAG inverter welders.
