Expand Your Business With New Welders and Welding Supplies
We all have those pieces of equipment in our shop that have been there for years because they keep working. While reliability is absolutely important in regards to the tools and body shop equipment that you use, it is never a bad idea to take a look at new equipment. New equipment, including the welders at Chassis Liner Supply, can offer you the same reliability that you have come to demand as well as a high level of efficiency. Contact us today to find out how we can custom-build a Chief welder for your shop or to learn more about the other body shop equipment that we manufacture, including automotive paint booths, frame racks, and so much more.
MIG (metal inert gas) welding is a form of gas metal arc welding (GMAW) where an electrical arc is formed between an electrode wire and work piece metals. The heat generated causes the work pieces to melt and join together. While originally developed to weld aluminum and other non-ferrous metals, welders quickly realized that GMAW helped to speed up the steel welding process.
At Chassis Liner Supply, the Chief welders that we carry work as MIG and MAG welders in order to provide you with the most flexibility when you are trying to work. Find the 511, 522, and 621 today.
Instead of using an electrode wire like GMAW welders to join pieces of metal together, a plasma cutter uses a jet of superheated plasma to cut through workpieces. Plasma cutters are extremely useful in auto body repair shops because they allow you to quickly create holes on materials both thin and thick. The portability of our plasma cutters offer yet another advantage over other kinds of torches.
We have spot welders that are designed to work with high-strength Boron, USIBOR, TRIP, TWIP, and XIP steels. Our spot welders are highly effective and very easy to use.

Is It Time For a New Welder?
Trying to decide when the time is right to buy any new equipment for your auto repair or body shop can be difficult. While price is obviously an important factor to consider, you also have to think about what jobs are already in the pipeline and would be affected by a change in equipment, as well as the loss of hours that may occur from introducing a new piece of machinery into the shop. If your shop does a lot of welding, it can be even more difficult to make a decision, because as long as a welder produces flame or an arc, it is still working. Keep reading to learn about some important signs to consider that it might be time to call us about a new welder.
At Chassis Liner Supply, we stock some of the best welders on the market: Chief Welders. Chief has long been a trusted name thanks to the ease of use, reliability, and intuitive design of their products.

Jobs Take Longer to Complete Than They Should
One of the earliest signs that you are working with a welder that just pulling its weight like it used to is when you begin to notice that jobs aren’t being finished as quickly as they usually are. While it is possible that there are other factors contributing to longer completion times, it is fairly easy to find out if the welder itself is the cause: do two of the same jobs back to back. When you do the same work twice in a row, you can eliminate many other factors that might be causing you to slow down, including distractions, lack of familiarity with the specifics of a job, etc. Because it would be almost impossible to have the exact same job at the same time, try to take a few pieces of scrap and perform the same work and see what happens. Compare both times to what was charged on older invoices and see if your welder is slowing you down.
Your Welds Don’t Look As Good As They Used To
If you’re an experienced welder, you know how your welds should look. Even if you are using someone else’s equipment, it doesn’t take you long to feel your way through the job. If, over the last few weeks or months, you have seen your welds looking a little sloppy or uneven, it might not be your fault: it could be that your welder isn’t doing its job as well as you expect. Like almost every other tool in your auto body or auto repair shop, a welder probably won’t last forever, especially if you use it a fair amount. Even replacing hoses and checking that your connections are strong and safe may not be enough to keep general wear and tear from taking an irreparable toll on your welder. Unfortunately, if your equipment doesn’t work as well as it should, your work won’t look as good as it actually is.
You Are Using a Welder That Was Built Decades Ago
We are firm believers in the axiom, “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” Buying tools from manufacturers like Chassis Liner Supply means that you don’t have to worry about replacing them every few years. That being said, there does come a point when even the most reliable tools might not be the best choice for your shop. If your welder is several decades old, it may be time to upgrade. Older tools just can’t compete when it comes to the efficiency, features, and reliability of a new welder. Take a look at the Chief welders that we offer at Chassis Liner Supply and see just how much more work you could accomplish with a new welder.
Why A New Welder Is A Good Idea Even For Small Shops
A welder is an important purchase for any body or auto repair shop. You need to have a welder that will do the work you need to do, but it also has to fit within your shop. Taking space limitations into account is especially important for smaller shops where every square foot is at a premium. If you need a few reasons why purchasing a new welder is a good idea for your shop, read on.

We will work with you to custom-build a welder that is just right for your shop, no matter what size it is.

New Welders Improve Turnaround Times
When you boil it down, the only reason we ever buy tools is to make it easier to complete work. Whether a flathead screwdriver has been ground down to a round nub or your welder is slow and barely works, replacing them allows you to complete jobs faster than you could if you had to use equipment or tools that were not in great shape or if you had to adapt other tools to do the job. Simply put, a new welder will almost always work better than a welder that is old and half-broken. Even if you don’t use your welder every day, for the jobs that require them, you need to have working equipment.
Consider this: have you turned down work because you didn’t want to tie yourself or one of your techs up with your current welder for a day or so? If you have, this means that your shop isn’t taking advantage of every chance to earn money and do more for your customers. Investing a small amount of money for a new welder or plasma cutter is a great way to ensure that you can handle any work that comes your way while also creating another possible revenue stream.
New Welders Are Smaller and More Efficient
If you own a small shop, it can be difficult to devote any free space to new equipment, especially if you already have something that works, or if you currently don’t perform a lot of work with a given piece of equipment. While we understand how hard it can be to lose any of your limited space, when you order a Chief plasma cutter or welder from Chassis Liner Supply, you can ditch your older, bulkier equipment and replace it with something that is smaller and works better. Flat-rate work is only profitable if your equipment can keep up. Old welders may have the power you need, but if they require a lot of upkeep, that inefficiency can cost you money. When you buy a new welder from Chassis Liner Supply, not only will your welding work get done faster, it will be more efficient.
