Spanesi releases the brand-new PULL UP! Repair System.
Spanesi’s new PULL UP! Repair System is a collision repair product based on specific straightening methods which utilize suction cups, glue and impact weights (or pulling column with Electropuller). These custom shaped suction cups can be used individually or together, thanks to the inclusion of traction bars that can be selected based on the type of damaged parts.
The PULL UP! is designed to provide a variety of pulling forces from light tension to hydraulic ram to address small, medium and large damage areas that are best served by repair versus replace repair methods. The Pull Up! system attaches to the damaged area, adhering directly to the painted surface.
The PULL UP! does not burn-through substrates and alleviates the need to repair burn through damage or apply backside corrosion protection after repairs. Removal of the battery, rerouting of electrical wiring, sensors and ADAS systems are not necessary. It also allows for straightening to be performed from the outside of the panel or lining without any need to disassemble or reassemble internal parts.
Spanesi will be providing live demonstrations of the PULL UP! Repair System in their booth at the SEMA Show 2019, Booth #10639 located in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center or contact Spanesi Americas for additional information.

UniCure would like to thank Hilltoppers for the opportunity to partner in this project. Here is what Owner David Cote had to say about this experience:
““After extensive research with various manufacturers on the right Paint Booth to suite our demanding automotive restoration needs, Hilltoppers Speed Shop decided to purchase a UniCure 1006 Downdraft Side Exhaust Spraybooth Oven Combination. Being a shop that focuses on high end restorations, it was very important for us to choose a booth that would allow us to attain the highest quality paint jobs possible for our customers. We feel we have achieved that with our UniCure Booth. Their sales and engineering staff worked with us every step of the way to ensure our specific needs were met from the sales, design, construction and installation phases of the build. Communication was excellent throughout the entire process. The finished product is amazing! I would highly recommend a UniCure booth to anybody who is looking for a professional, reliable and customer friendly process delivering a high quality and affordable paint booth”.”

This Accuvision-3D demonstration video shows the versatility and simplicity of the system. Accuvision-3D can be used as a 2D virtual tram gauge, or full 3D measuring tool. This video shows how quick and simple it is to measure upper body, under body, openings and wheel alignment diagnostics. The system can be used indoors or outdoors, no calibrations of the tool or leveling of vehicle is required. The new IR system works under ALL light conditions, even under direct sunlight.
Accuvision-3D is the latest innovation in 3D Measuring, now also with the additional wheel alignment diagnostics feature in the software, no calibrations, no setups, no extensions, no lasers, no targets, just point and measure, optical IR system, highly accurate and quick. Fast payback on investment. Get 3D reports for estimates and repairs in seconds. System uses Mitchell data. Training included.

Revolutionary: The X-nozzles are taking atomization to a whole new level.
Noticeably quieter: Whispering nozzle™ due to optimized air flow geometry, reduced noise level in the relevant sound frequency ranges.
Individual: Matches each application requirement, such as specific characteristics of the paint system, climatic conditions and application method (application speed/application control).
Precise: Optimized material distribution for enhanced spraying uniformity and atomization with both spray fan shapes.
Low maintenance: No air distribution insert required, thus also ensuring a much easier and faster cleaning process.
Consistent: Constant fan size across the entire nozzle spectrum (within the range of each respective atomization technology) with linear increases of the material flow rate.
Efficient: The optimized atomization concept enables to realize considerable material savings using the same application method as before.
For Collision Solutions in New Orleans, LA, making the switch to Cromax® EZ waterborne played a vital role in improving speed, color accuracy and profitability for the shop.
With Cromax® EZ from Axalta Coating Systems, Collision Solutions was able to achieve their goal of 90-minute touch-times in the booth—helping them get more cars through the booth. And, because Cromax® EZ uses the same coat-flash application process their painters have already mastered, making the switch to waterborne was incredibly easy.
Cromax® EZ is easy to mix, easy to apply, and delivers winning coverage to every vehicle. And, when used with Axalta’s ColorNet® system, you can eliminate the need for spray outs with the ability to proof color formulations right on your Acquire™ Quantum EFX screen.
See how easy growing your business with Cromax® EZ can be.
