OSSEO, Wis. – Global Finishing Solutions (GFS), the world’s leading manufacturer of paint booths and finishing equipment, is proud to announce its inclusion in the General Motors Dealer Equipment Program with its REVO Accelerated Curing Systems. The state-of-the-art REVO Systems, which use short wave electric infrared technology, can improve paint shop throughput up to 80 percent.
“Global Finishing Solutions is excited to work with the GM Dealer Equipment Program to be the program’s sole provider of infrared curing equipment,” said Brandon Lowder, Vice President of Auto Refinish Sales at Global Finishing Solutions. “With REVO Systems, GFS provides shops the ability to dramatically increase throughput without overhauling their space.”
Introduced in 2014, GFS’ REVO Accelerated Curing Systems leverage electric IR technology to significantly reduce curing times for both prep and paint phases of repairs. Available in multiple models ranging from a handheld unit to larger systems which integrate into paint booths and prep areas, the REVO Systems are designed to fit a variety of needs while working within a shop’s current footprint. Each model delivers high-quality results at a fraction of the energy cost compared to conventional curing methods.
By offering a complete cure every time, GFS’ REVO Systems achieve higher quality results that reduce rework. The short wave electric IR drying energy is concentrated on only the panels needing repair and penetrates multiple layers of coatings to heat the substrate beneath. With just one pass, REVO Systems consistently cure primer, sealer and paint. This allows technicians to speed up the repair process by hours and dramatically increases shop throughout.
“REVO products offer the collision repair industry a win-win-win,” added Lowder. “The dealership can realize increased profits through productivity gains, the technician enjoys easy-to-use technology that produces exceptional repairs and the end user receives a higher quality repair that truly brings a vehicle back to the quality it was before an accident.
The GM Dealer Equipment Program provides a full range of OEM tested and approved equipment to service, parts and body shops. The program offers installation and training assistance, factory direct shipments and experienced personnel. It can also arrange for supplier visits and product demonstrations to provide shops with complete information about its approved products.
As an OEM-approved supplier, Global Finishing Solutions will offer REVO Accelerated Curing Systems to meet the needs of GM dealership service operations across the U.S. and Canada. In addition to supplying the REVO Systems, GFS is a GM-approved supplier of paint booths, prep environments and other finishing equipment.
