Welding Equipment

We use a range of welding equipment manufactured and supplied by Gondelier Ltd. They are one of the leading suppliers of welding equipment to the international body repair industry.

Their Tecna welders are designed for welding galvanised panels, ultra high strength steel and steel body panels up to 6 mm thick and in certain applications, their spot welders can even be used on certain aluminium panels – although dedicated aluminium welders are recommended and preferred. Also in this range, is the Tecna Control 3664 Inverter spot-welder (13500 Amp ) which is specifically suited to spot-weld the high strength steel ZSTE 340 being used on almost all European cars. This steel is lighter than normal steel, due to alloys that have been added during the manufacturing process and is designed to simultaneously be light and strong (it must not be
able to tear or fold easily in the event of a collision). To weld this correctly, electrode force, correct power and correct tip size and shape are of crucial importance and the Tecna Inverter spot welder is designed to give factory quality welds that addresses these three crucial factors. It should be noted that the Tecna Control 3664 inverter spot welder is Audi AG approved.
