Volkswagen AG Approves Resistance Spot Welder for High-Quality Repairs

Car-O-Liner has received another prestigious approval from Volkswagen AG — for the unique CTR® 9 Fully-automatic Resistance Spot Welder, the VAS 6755A.

«Volkswagen recognizes that the high performance VAS6755A welder meets their requirements for high-quality repairs of their modern, technologically advanced vehicles» says Jonny Jangdin, product manager at Car-O-Liner.

What’s so special about the VAS 6755A?

In order to achieve this approval, the Car-O-Liner CTR® 9 welder went through a series of dedicated welding tests performed by an independent third party welding institute to ensure the welder met the high quality welding requirements set by Volkswagen. On top of that it was determined that for Volkswagen the VAS 6755A fully automatic resistance spot welder is delivered with the special Volkswagen16A welding cap, Volkswagen-specific software and the new Shelf and Clip Kit and Dust Cover — all as standard equipment.

Technology for greater working range

The Telescopic Support Arm is designed to ensure maximum freedom of movement (from 1.9 to 2.4 m). Made of robust yet lightweight extruded aluminum, it is easy to adjust both vertically and horizontally for an optimum working position. The arm supports the revolutionized Lightweight Transformer C-Yoke. The C-yoke’s 355° Double Rotating Handle with Ergo-grip enables perfect working positions for any technician. Made of reinforced fiberglass, the transformer c-yoke is designed for fast-paced activity. Robust, yet among the lightest on the market, technicians are able to work efficiently with minimal body strain. Intuitive and easy to use the Exclusive Control Panel with 7» color display, equipped with VW-approved software, automatically establishes required settings to ensure the proper weld nugget, giving fast paced accuracy with every welding spot.
Providing welding currents up to 16,000 A, the VAS 6755A’s Robust and Compact Power Unit, with its solid, high strength steel bottom plate, features a low center of gravity for superior stability and increased mobility. Using CANBUS communication VAS6755A instantly measures the metal panels and calculates the exact amount of time, current and clamping force needed for a perfect, Volkswagen approved, quality weld.
The Shelf and Clip Kit adds versatility to the welder. The 3 shelves provide a great space to place consumables and equipment. Two shelves swing from side to side giving ease of access and are height adjustable to achieve optimal working conditions. Four clips keep the hose in place, out of the way increasing technician safety, a high priority at Volkswagen.

Easy to use — ready to perform

The VAS 6755A automatically establishes required settings ensuring the proper weld nugget while the advanced quality control system monitors and adjusts the welder to guarantee the total energy input. By using the USB port the welder can easily be upgraded to any new VW/welding standards. An optional accessory is the WeldLogger™ software which allows technicians to create work orders and save them in log files that can be printed/e-mailed if needed.
