GM and Daimler Chrysler Approve ARC Manufacturing Welder



arc manufacturing's Hybrid spot welder receives oem approval

 by General Motors and Daimler Chrysler 


SPOKANE, WA - April 25, 2007 - General Motors and Daimler Chrysler are the
first to approve ARC Manufacturing's New Model 1250 Hybrid Spot Welder.  ARC
Manufacturing, an American family owned company, has been an industry leader
for over ten years.  Michael Fuchs, majority owner and inventor of this
patented technology states, "We have been working closely with OEM's for
years, but this particular approval was important to us.  This enables all
collision repair facilities to now benefit from this technology."  


This machine only requires 110 volt power source to operate.  A large
percentage of North American body shops do not have enough power, or the
right type of power, to operate 240 volt, 3 phase welders. Equal output and
quality can be achieved continuously with the Model 1250.  The
transformer/battery technology uses commercial batteries with an average
life of 3-4 years.  The batteries are easy and economical to replace.  The
Hybrid Welder works with all new high strength steels including Boron.  Weld
times of 2 tenths of a second from the D.C. current creates minimal
distortion of the material with very low heat build-up.  This process also
allows the welder to be efficiently air cooled instead of water-cooled.  The
American made machine is not affected by voltage fluctuations and is


For over a decade, ARC Manufacturing has been an industry leader in the
innovative use of welding technology. For more information, contact them at
