    • CompuSpot 900 Fusion Smart Welder

    • Today's vehicles require spot welders to be very powerful powerhouses with advanced micro processor technology in order to be able to produce safe and consistent spot welds. Many welders that have been purchased not very long ago are sadly inappropriate and underpowered for the new generation of technlogically advanced vehicles of today. There is some inside information that the steel industry will introduce an even stronger, and lighter steel. This defintely will require serious power and computer control to produce a spot weld with good penetration through several layers of different composites of steel. The Compuspot 900 Fusion does this by automatically setting the weld parameters of power, time, squeeze pressure. If that was not enough it produces a pass or fail report on each weld on the assigned vehicle, downloadable to a USB for proof of quality, liability and safety issues. High strength steels in several variations such as Boron is becoming commonplace in more vechiles each year. Your buying decision should encompass many variables such as Cost, Power of the spot welder, future power needs, ease of use and (Very Important - Electrical Requirements) and much more you must consider. Pro Line Systems International, a leader in sales of the CompuSpot line of Invert spot welders is ready to assist anyone considering upgrading to the powerful CompuSpot line of exceptional spot welders. Our low price policy assures you of the best deal. Our Free Consultation is always cheerfully given so you are assured of 100% satisfaction with your equipment purchase.
