Car-O-Liner Expands Equipment Line for Ford F-150 Collision Program

Frame alignment solutions and two additional welders have been added alongside the already-approved CMI3000II MIG/MAG Pulse Welder.

Car-O-Liner has expanded its equipment offering included in the 2015 F-150 Collision Repair Program.

To complement the already-approved production-grade CMI3000II MIG/MAG Pulse Welder, two additional welders have been added to the collision repair program. The Car-O-Liner AUTOMIG 273i Pulse Boost MIG Welder is ideal for entry-level welding requirements and includes a four-wheel wire feed system that uses a single torch and synergic pre-set welding programs. The AUTOMIG 273i Pulse Duo Boost MIG Welder also precisely feeds soft wires like aluminum but includes two torches, making it an efficient tool when there is a need for easy switch-over between welding and brazing operations.

Also added to the collision repair program are frame alignment solutions including Car-O-Liner’s truck clamping system and EVO universal anchoring system that eliminates the need for specialized adapters and tools in favor of universal, approved technology. Car-O-Liner’s truck clamping securely mounts every compact truck, pickup, van and sport utility vehicle, while the EVO Extension Package complements the universal EVO1 and EVO2 holding system with components to meet the fixturing requirements of full-frame vehicles. This package includes bolts and bushings specific to Ford F-150 repairs as well as two strong, double-sided tool storage carts to securely store equipment.

To complete our total equipment solutions offered through the program, Car-O-Liner’s mobile Aluminum Workstation contains tools and equipment to repair aluminum damage. The repair station includes an aluminum spotter along with an array of tools for aluminum dent pulling. The dent pulling bars are constructed of lightweight carbon fiber, making them lighter and three times stronger than steel, according to Car-O-Liner.

Car-O-Liner says these tools are easy to use without compromising their strength. With a work area and heavy-duty shelving, the portable cart provides the dedicated tool storage necessary to reduce the possibility of cross-contamination with steel particles.

“The addition of this equipment to Ford Motor Company’s 2015 F-150 Collision Repair Program will greatly enhance the technician’s potential to have the exact tools they need for high quality, quick and accurate repairs,” said said Peter Richardson, key accounts manager for Car-O-Liner Company. “With this expanded product offering, Car-O-Liner is excited to provide the total repair solution, giving technicians the right equipment to complete each repair order efficiently.”
