The History of Aluminum Welding.

Now there is a riveting (no pun intended) topic to discuss over the dinner table! The average modern vehicle that tools around the greater Louisville area contains more aluminum than ever before. Aluminum is one of 92 metallic elements that have existed since way back when the Earth was formed.

As AlcoTec Wire Corp’s Tony Anderson puts it “There is a change in the culture and in understanding the difference between steel and aluminum…because they are very different as far as welding is concerned. Once you understand the difference, it's very easy to weld it… far easier than steel.”

Over the decades here at The Don Embry Body Shop we have been known for adapting to cutting edge technology. In the future, laser beam welding may become the norm! When you bring your damaged vehicle into The Dom Embry Body Shop located at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville, we treat it like our own. Drive in or call ahead at (502) 935-1373.

What is a Paint Spray Booth?

No, it is certainly not found in a tanning salon! You will find it at a quality auto body shop in the Louisville area. What does it do? For one thing, it is the most efficient way of containing over sprayed paint. There is a filtered air supply and an exhaust system during the painting process. Further, the system should be easy to operate.

During the painting cycle, both the suction and exhaust damper remain in their open position. The blower helps in providing fresh air which is pushed through the exhaust duct. At the same time, heating will be off. During the drying process both the exhaust and suction hampers will stay in a closed position.

You don’t need to know all of this. What you DO need to know is that The Don Embry Body Shop has a complete state-of-the-art down draft bake spray booth. It is just another reason why The Don Embry Body Shop continues to be the best in Louisville after nearly six decades. They are located at 8272 Dixie Highway.
