GYS wins latest Ford certification for Spot Welder


Continuing a long relationship with the Ford Motor Company, GYS has won the latest Ford 2015 certification for spot welding with its latest GYSPOT Evolution PTI-s7 machine.

The new certification comes following the creation of the 2015 Ford specifications and extensive testing by the Ford Motor Company in Germany.

The new GYSPOT Pti Evolution is a 14,500A transformer gun Spot Welder with lightweight arm and the latest fully automatic control system.

Key requirements demanded by Ford were extensive. These included the need to meet technical welding specifications and that of user convenience now requiring spot welding parameters; time, current and pressure being automatically set by the machine. Also subject to the new Ford specification was the manufacturer’s capability to provide effective aftersales support and technical help to the end-user.

This latest Ford certification supersedes the previous 2008 specification which was held by an earlier generation GYS machine.

Bruno Bouygues – GYS CEO said: “We are delighted to win the Ford certification, it follows a long working relationship between Ford and GYS. As a major manufacturer we are constantly investing in inverter welding technology to ensure our products offer the best quality and functionality thus meeting the needs of global car manufacturers”

The Ford certification follows recent approvals for GYS equipment from Volkswagen and General Motors.

GYS is French family owned industrial group which manufactures three product families; industrial welding machines, battery maintenance equipment as well as Car Body welding equipment for which GYS is now the largest manufacturer in Europe. As well as the UK, GYS has commercial subsidiaries in Germany, Italy, China and India.
