Automotive Welding

After more than two decades since its introduction, advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) are making major inroads into the automotive manufacturing. The sluggish acceptance of advanced high-strength steel came from the auto industry’s reluctance to making changes, some industry experts said. However, rising fuel prices, environmental issues, and increased safety concerns combined to push vehicle makers into developing lighter weight cars.

Heated Downdraft Spray Booth

Auto Body Concept's Heated Down Draft Spray Paint Booth intakes fresh air from the cleaner upper levels of the shop through a filter bank located in the booth ceiling near the product doors. The filtered air is drawn down through the booth to an exhaust filter system at the other end. This booth is equipped with a pre-filter plenum for additional intake air filtration. The basic modified downdraft design allows for easy pressurization with the addition of an intake fan or a heated air make up unit. The benefits of using a Heated Down Draft Spray Booth include:

Replacement Parts Quality

When it comes to OEM quality there is really no debate. Replacement OEM parts are the same exact parts that were used on your vehicle when it was built, the same parts were on it before it was damaged, with the same fit, finish, structural integrity, corrosion resistance and dent protection. The quality picture is much less clear for imitation parts: Testing of imitation crash parts performed by Consumer Reports Magazine in the February 2012 issue really blew the lid off of what the insurance companies have been trying to keep under cover for years. This is not news by any means.
