Supplementary Equipment Requirements
A forklift capable of lifting the EDR power supply and supporting it within 20ft (6 meters) of
the area to be repaired and a man-lift or suitable scaffold for the operator to stand on may be
required, especially when working on larger aircraft.
The EDR should be used only in dry locations and should be protected from weather at all times.
To prevent overheating of internal components, it should be kept out of direct sunlight when
in use. Damp or dusty environments should also be avoided.
Existing EDR models require a three-wire 120VAC, 20A, 60Hz power source (grounded neutral). New equipment
could be designed to meet customer specific power needs.
Electroimpact will provide safety training to our EDR customers, either in our facility or theirs, with
the purchase of any new EDR and as periodic refresher courses. This training is for the most part limited to basic safe operation and proper
care of the EDR to ensure a long product lifetime. During training we will pass along tips and techniques
for use, but ultimately it will be up to the customer to develop the necessary skills to effectively pull dents.
Can your machine remove the dents from my airplane?
Maybe, but possibly not. Whether or not the EDR will be able to remove any given dent is very difficult to know in advance of trying. Some dents are more amenable to the EDR process than others. Dents that are near a rib but not directly over the rib tend to be most obliging. Skin dents that are farther distant from any internal support structure tend to be less cooperative. Creases are particularly difficult. Dents that have caused the metal to stretch cannot be fully removed by the EDR process (though it may be possible to reduce their depth somewhat).
Can you come pull the dents out of my airplane, or do I need to bring my airplane to you?
Neither. We are not in the business of pulling dents out of airplanes ourselves. We build the machines that do the dent removal.
Can the EDR pull a dent out of an automobile?
We are not aware of a case where this was an effective solution.
How much does one of your EDR machines cost?
At the present time, the cost of an Electroimpact EDR machine is $500,000 USD. The EDR coils are sold separately. They are $2,500 each.
Can you lease me an EDR?
My company is ready to purchase an Electroimpact EDR. How soon can you deliver it?
Delivery time for an EDR is 14 months after a contract is placed.
What are the sale terms for an EDR?
We require $150,000 with the order and $350,000 upon shipment.
Can you sell an EDR to a foreign customer?
