CONWAY, Ark. — The latest software upgrade for the Car-O-Liner CTR7 resistance spot welder includes an OEM mode with pre-loaded Honda weld conditions.
Beginning with some 2016 models, Honda repair procedures call for the technician to manually set weld current, weld time and squeeze pressure based on a table of Honda weld conditions.
Thanks to the software upgrade, technicians can select the weld condition and the welder sets everything for them. They can then weld from the OEM screen, making it easier to follow Honda repair procedures and change from one weld condition to the next.
The update also allows collision repair shops to abide by Honda's certified weld conditions and maintain precision without putting a strain on cycle times.
"This new software update brings a notable decrease of cycle times along with increased precision and production for Honda-certified collision repair shops," said Tim Garner, market development manager for Car-O-Liner. "It also eases the difficulty, time and morale costs of new technician training."
