Resellers: What You Should Know about the Mini-Ductor Venom

What Is Venom & Why Is It So Popular?

Riding the success of the market leading Mini-Ductor® portal induction heating tool series, the innovative new Mini-Ductor Venom™ features several innovations for mechanics:

  • Angled, lightweight ergonomic design
  • Convenient Coil Twist Lock™ (no thumb screws)
  • LED usage indicator
  • Fault override delay
  • Thermal cooling enhancements

All of the above, combined with our decades of experience, combines to make the most effective and efficient induction portable heating tool in the automotive repair market. Venom is also useful to repair CNC machines, and removing small parts that are corroded or seized for agricultural, marine, rail, aerospace, and military equipment.

The launch of Venom will generate inquiries from your customers, so here are our top 3 tips for how to sell our new product effectively.

1. Your Customers Will Increase Their Profitability

The new Mini-Ductor Venom uses flameless, Invisible Heat® in many applications to remove old, rusted or corroded nuts, bolts, O2 sensors, fixings, windows, body moldings, body panels, and more – safely, speedily and with control.

As a result, there's no longer any need to use torches or open flame to remove parts, which are unreliable, time consuming and can damage the area around the part – all of which affects productivity and, ultimately, profitability. And if oxygen-acetylene use is reduced or eliminated, insurance premiums will decline.

2. Demonstrating Venom Is Successful 80%+

Investing time in training and learning how to demonstrate Venom drives sales. Once the portable induction heater is in their hands, they will see how fast and easy it is to use. It's also important to discuss using both new and used coils so they new when to replace a coil.
