Chief announced it will be showing NACE | CARS 2016 attendees how the OEM shift to lighter weight materials such as aluminum, carbon fiber, high-strength steels and magnesium is driving the need for new equipment and repair techniques to perform proper collision repairs. NACE | CARS 2016 will take place August 9-13 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif. Chief will be in booth no. 215.
The mild steel floors and high-strength steel cabin structures of many of today’s new vehicles require holding without using traditional pinch welds. Chief offers several new bench solutions, such as the compact Globaljig Presented by Chief Koala bench that will be on display with the LaserLock Live Mapping in the Chief booth. Chief representatives will demo Chief joining equipment periodically during the show. Also on display will be Chief equipment designed for aluminum repair, including the Chief Fume Extractor, Dust Extractor and MultiMig 511 welder.
“As vehicle design and repair methods evolve, collision professionals must invest in new tools, equipment and training to properly repair the latest vehicles,” said Bob Holland, director of collision sales in North and South America for Chief parent company Vehicle Service Group (VSG). “NACE provides us the opportunity to showcase the equipment that shops need to help them grow and prosper in the future, as well as the support provided by our local distributors like Southern California Collision Equipment.”
Visit Chief booth no. 215 to take advantage of show specials on bench systems, frame racks, measuring systems and other new collision repair equipment. Chief is also offering financing rates for $1 buy-out leases.
