Electro-Magnetic Dent Removal (EMDR) is a specialized dent repair technique that can fix small soft dents on the body of a car without the need to repaint or do any extreme repairs to the affected area. This process encompasses an electromagnetic induction heating system that removes the dent from the outside of the panel. EMDR is rapidly becoming the most used method to take dents out, with the traditional paintless dent repair (PDR) methods that involve accessing the dent from the back of the panel are becoming less used.
Key features and benefits of EMDR
The system includes a customised electric dent puller that generates electromagnetic fields, which are used to heat the metal panel locally around the dent. Unlike traditional PDR methods, which involve massaging dents or accessing the back of panels, EMDR heats the metal panel to reshape it, making it especially useful for dents in hard-to-reach or difficult-to-access areas.
Induction heating is a highly advanced method of dent removal, efficiently transferring heat to the metal panel and allowing for precise and controlled dent repair. Mechanics love this method compared to conventional PDR tools, as EMDR can provide faster dent repairs because the process doesn’t require extensive massaging or accessing the dent from behind the panel.
This method is also suitable for use in all types of mechanical repair and auto body repair facilities, providing a versatile solution for fixing soft dents on various car models.
What is induction heating
Induction heating is a process that uses electromagnetic induction to heat a conductive material, such as metal. It relies on the principle of electromagnetic induction, which was discovered by Michael Faraday in the early 19th century. The process involves generating alternating electric currents in a coil to create a changing magnetic field. When a conductive material is placed within this magnetic field, it experiences a flow of electrical currents, which leads to heating.
