THE ARSLAN AUTOMOTIVE WAY
YOUR SOURCE FOR OEM APPROVED EQUIPMENT
It’s no secret that Arslan Automotive is a staple name in the collision repair industry, due to the professional quality and reliability of its 3D measuring and welding equipment brands, which have become well-recognized in Canada among collision repair professionals.
Arslan Automotive Canada Ltd. has been going strong for 43+ years. The company is best known for its globally known TECNA Smart/Smart Plus Inverter Spot welding equipment, including popular Accuweld inverter pulse MIG/MAG welder models both of which have captured a significant slice of the Canadian market. They also manufacture Accuvision-3D, an innovative 3D measuring system, developed by Arslan Automotive Canada and made in Montreal. According to the company, the 10-AV700 3D measuring system is “the quickest, simplest and most versatile and accurate” 3D measuring system in the world and Arslan Automotive shows no signs of slowing down its sales of these systems with over 350 shops in Canada and US having adopted the system for their 3D measuring since its genesis approximately 3 years ago.
In 2021, the company introduced a new line of 3 Pulse MIG welding machines and an Inverter Arc Dent puller repair system for dents, under the brand name Accuweld, Pulse MIGs that are available in single torch (mdl.60-TM736), two torch, (mdl.60-TM742) and three torch (mdl.60-TM743) models with state of the art features as auto-setting torches, 4 wheel wire drive system and more.
According to the company, the Accuweld 60-TM750FK Arc Dent Puller system is a high-end synergic welder with programs dedicated to both aluminum and steel and is capable of repairing dents and strengthening thin metal sheets, especially when it comes to aluminum. The system also features a colour graphic display with a simple-to-use interface, with customizable and storable programs, plus, an SD-Memory Card to update and add programs. Arslan has been focusing on the Canadian market, and introducing the Accuweld line to its U.S. sales agents and customers at 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas
Arslan also made some major progress this year in the South Korean market. The company recently has announced the signing of an agreement with the Kia and Hyundai National Car Dealers Associations of Korea, to support and promote the installation of Accuvision-3D measuring systems in all Korean collision repair facilities. Hyundai and Kia vehicles make up 90 percent of cars purchased in Korea. The deal was quite an undertaking, as Arslan had to create a Korean language version of Accuvision-3D that is also programmed with chassis data specific to vehicle models sold in Korea.
Arman Gurarslan, President and owner of Arslan Automotive Canada spoke of the agreement, stating, “We’ve done our homework, our software programming, we’ve signed our agreements and now we’re going into South Korea for 2022. Covid is subsiding, people will be working and they will be asking for the right equipment to work with, and we will be there, with the right 3D measuring equipment.”
