CTR9 helps more bodyshops tackle major repairs
Share:

High used car prices in Ireland and initiatives introduced by vehicle manufacturers mean that there is now a trend towards repairing major vehicle damage to keep a car on the road rather than classing it as a write-off. This is good for all parties in that it means the driver does not have the cost and inconvenience of sourcing a replacement car, the insurance company makes cost savings and the bodyshop get more work. 


The trend has placed increased importance on a bodyshops welding capabilities and this has seen many Irish repairers turn to equipment specialist Car-O-Liner and its CTR9 fully automatic welding system. 

This a new generation of welder which features a light-weight transformer gun, with 355° swivel handle and ergo-grip providing excellent flexibility. The design enables the operator to achieve the perfect working position for just about any job, boosting productivity and easing physical stress in the operator. 

The gun is supported by a telescopic arm in a durable and lightweight extruded aluminium that can be easily adjusted both vertically and horizontally. A compact power unit with a low centre of gravity gives mobility and stability, while a 16,000-amp transformer and CANBUS communication ensure a perfect weld every time.

The CTR 9 is approved by many vehicle manufacturers as it fully meets their requirements for high-quality repairs of their modern, technologically advanced vehicles. For example to achieve Jaguar/Land Rover approval CTR 9 welder went through a Boronated Steel Resistance Spot Welder testing protocol which included various structural and cross section tests. The tests were performed on different Boronated steel combinations to ensure the quality of the welds performance. The CTR 9 passed these tests with flying colours.
