IMS Spot Alu from Autopaint Supplies

More and more vehicle manufacturers are opting for aluminium body panels, and replacing these can be very costly

The IMS Spot Alu FV, which is available from exclusive Irish IMS distributor Autopaint Supplies, allows for the repairing of aluminium panels.

The Spot Alu FV is designed specifically to perform dent pulling on aluminium.

Using M4 studs, this device allows eliminating the bump and impacts (door panel, hood, …) without stripping.

Its micro-processor is controlled with digital display. The tool can operate from 50 volts to 200 volts. It has a power setting of 0-10.

Included with the Spot Alu FV is an automatic gun. This gun has no trigger; the welding is automatic when the tip slides into the gun. The earth terminals are integrated to the gun.

Commenting on the IMS range, Ciaran Fox, Business Development Manager at Autopaint Supplies said: “IMS boasts an extensive range of collision repair equipment, from plastic welders to water cooled spot welders, dent pullers to lifting equipment and everything in between.
