Paintless Dent Removal: Baton vs. Picks & Other Manual Methods

Alicia Hawkins - Thursday, June 22, 2017

Induction Heating Technology & Not Your Father's Way to Perform Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)

Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) Baton Induction Heater Attachment

Induction heating uses high frequency magnetic fields to instantly heat metal, providing fast, consistent heat to electrically conductive materials and is a high-tech method for removing soft dents when using our PDR Baton – an attachment used with our Inductor® Series.

Our PDR attachment reduces the need to meticulously massage from the backside of vehicle panels, especially in hard to reach, inaccessible areas. The PDR Baton allows you to gently heat from the exterior, expanding the area of the panel desired, working from the outer crown of the dent towards the center.

Using the PDR Baton results in a clean dent repair in a fraction of the time compared to other conventional methods. It easily releases areas being held back by foam/adhesives, hot glue tabs and can be used for annealing and stress relieving panels. This attachment is a must-have for your arsenal.
