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.

PDR Baton vs. Conventional Methods

Using the PDR Baton results in a clean dent repair in a fraction of the time compared to other conventional methods, such as:

  • Picks, rods, bars, hand tools, and whales: there is no need to get under braces because you can fix door dents from the outside
  • Glue stick guns and pullers: no more mess and pulling paint off
  • Door hooks: no need to go under the top brace or through window wells because you can fix door dents from the outside

The PDR Baton 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.
