Car-O-Liner, a leading global manufacturer of collision repair equipment to the automotive aftermarket, announced that General Motors and Jaguar Land Rover have both approved Car-O-Liner vacuum products for use in their collision repair centres.
General Motors will incorporate Car-O-Liner’s complete line of CleanPrep Vacuum systems for their aluminium repair centre, as well as their body shop, collision and refinishing service. Jaguar Land Rover has added Car-O-Liner’s CleanPrep Wet Mix Immersion Vacuum system.
According to Car-O-Liner, vacuum systems are critical since most OEM certification programs require safe dust extraction of aluminium, carbon fibre and other materials. Dust containment results in a clean business that is safe for customers and employees. Reducing dust can also reduce labour time and increase efficiency, therefore increasing profitability.
“A clean, efficient shop begins with dust containment,” said Mark Weinmann, OEM Account Manager, Car-O-Liner. “Dust of all types is one of the most problematic enemies of a collision repair shop. As dust travels through the building, it can create corrosion, contamination, potential fire hazards and costly reworks. Our vacuum systems are built to military and commercial aerospace specifications to safely and efficiently extract dust from any shop,” he concluded.
Car-O-Liner, a subsidiary of Snap-on Incorporated, is the leading global provider of high-quality, technologically-advanced collision repair equipment to the automotive aftermarket. For more information, visit www.car-o-liner.com.
