PRODUCT FOCUS • New Products
BASF has introduced the new handheld colour retrieval instrument baslac e-finder star. The device is aimed at easier colour matching, faster repair times and higher profitability.
Colour accuracy can mean the difference between profit and loss, as re-dos burn revenue.
Up to now, bodyshops have typically had to accept a tradeoff: quick and easy handling with compromised col- our accuracy or a high level of accuracy with slow handling. This is why BASF developed the baslac e-finder star to fit seamlessly into bodyshop workflows and support fast, easy and accurate colour matching.
The device works seamlessly with baslac Formula Finder, baslac’s global colour database, allowing users to find the right colour formula in a second.
The digital tool enables automatic calibration on black for significantly
faster calibration than existing systems provide. Automatic calibration after each job also means the user can be sure of consistent accuracy. It uses WiFi to connect seamlessly with the baslac Formula Finder for faster colour mixing.
The baslac e-finder star features a five-angle technology for more accurate reading of all solid,
metallic and pearlescent paints. A green or red LED signal light tells the user immediately if the measurement is correct.
The baslac e-finder star is ergonomically designed for easy operation with one hand. The device is small, but features a large touchscreen, so the painter can process vehicle information directly on it without the need to switch to another computer. A stylus and docking station are also included. Once fully charged, the tool gives up to two days of work.
A self-closing cover keeps the measurement window clean and protected at all times.
                       SPANESI PULL UP!
The PULL UP! repair system is the latest Spanesi innovation, which utilises suction cups, glue and slide hammers to produce flawless panel repairs. Suitable for both steel and aluminium substrates, straightening is performed from the exterior of the panel or lining. Spanesi’s exclusive glue formulation facilitates difficult repair procedures to be completed on rocker panels, roofs, dog legs, door sills, along body lines and pillar locations.
The specially shaped suction cups can be used individually or together, thanks to specific bars that are selected based on the type of damaged parts. PULL UP! does not burn or puncture the panel or car cover, and it is not necessary to remove the battery. The PULL UP Repair System is available in two packages: basic and full. Each package is designed to meet the requirements of automotive repair professionals.
