Nelson Automotive rebrands as AVISTUD - 14 March 2019

Global automotive stud welding leader Nelson Automotive has announced a complete rebrand of its business to customers, stakeholders and industry peers.

The newly launched brand, AVISTUD, reflects the total separation of the Nelson Automotive business from the brand of its former industrial parent Nelson Stud Welding. Nelson Automotive was initially created as a standalone automotive company following the sale of Nelson Stud Welding from Doncasters to Stanley Black & Decker in April 2018.
AVISTUD, whose name represents the Automotive, Versatile and Innovative stud welding that the firm brings to the industry, will focus solely on providing high-tech products to car manufacturers and their suppliers. In December 2018, the company announced a major new deal to supply Daimler AG with innovative technology equipment for the production of Mercedes Benz C-class and S-class ranges.

Griot’s Garage G9 Random Orbital Polisher

The G9’s comfort is second to none. You can feel its lightness and balance the first time you pick it up. Griot’s Garage designed the G9 with perfectly placed grips, high-quality double-shot rubber touch points, and easy to engage controls that are convenient for right- and left-handed users. They’ve upped the power ante to 1,000 watts, a 17% increase over their previous 6” Random Orbital. Just like on the street, performance is all about putting the power down. So Griot’s Garage made the G9’s drivetrain 45% stronger than their Gen3 machine and added a state-of-the-art Constant Speed Controller. The controller maintains the set speed even when additional pressure is applied to the tool, ensuring the G9 makes the most of every 9mm pad rotation. Representing the fourth generation of improvements to the Griot’s Garage line of Random Orbitals, the innovative, feature-rich G9 is the new benchmark of random orbital design.

ORACLE Lighting Reveals Revolutionary Oculus Headlamp System

Oracle Lighting is excited to debut the Oculus Bi-LED Headlamp system for the 2018-2020 Jeep Wrangler JL and 2020 Jeep Gladiator JT models. Oracle's revolutionary lighting system features advanced LED projection with 3,200 lumens for enhanced driver visibility in all weather conditions. The Oculus LED light source also uses less power compared to the factory lamps while still providing more light output.

“The new Wrangler is one of the hottest vehicles currently available,” says Oracle Lighting Director of Product Development Justin Hartenstein. “Unfortunately, the factory JL and Gladiator headlamps present compromises: the base-model halogens don’t emit adequate light in our opinion, and the optional LEDs are an expensive upgrade. We created the Oculus Bi-LED to give owners of new Jeeps more focused lighting that significantly exceeds the factory light output, all at an affordable price.”
