DEFINITION OF TERMS

  • Brazing – Brazing is a method of joining metal parts using nonferrous filler metals with high melting points such as copper, silver, and aluminum alloys. Brazing differs from soldering by using a higher temperature; and unlike welding, the parts are not melted. Brazing is best for dissimilar or thinner metal parts difficult to weld or solder.
  • Dent – A dent is a depression in a surface made by pressure or a blow.
  • File – The file is any of several hardened steel tools with cutting ridges for forming, smoothing, or reducing especially metallic surfaces.
  • Impact gun – An impact gun is a pneumatic tool with attached sockets used to tighten and loosen screws or bolts.
  • Jig – A jig is a device for guiding a tool or for holding machine work in place.
  • Pry bar – A pry bar is a heavy steel bar, pointed at one end and shaped lie chisel at the other end; used for prying.
  • Rubber mallet – The rubber mallet is a tool with a large head, used to strike a surface without damaging it.
  • Sander – A sander is a machine having a powered abrasive-covered disk or belt, used for smoothing or polishing surfaces.
  • Skin panel parts – Skin panel parts refers to the parts of the vehicle such as hood, trunk lid, LH-RH doors, LH-RH fender.
  • Steel brush (wire) – A steel brush is a hard brush wire, providing a high fatigue life and durable cutting action. It is most appropriate for work on steel and iron work pieces, but may also be used on wood, aluminum, brass and copper; however the softer the material to be brushed, the more likely that a steel wire brush will cut into the material and remove base material in addition to the targeted coating or contamination.
  • Tinsmith operation – Tinsmith operation is a part of the body shop section wherein the additional welding process, brazing application, sin panel installation, dent and other metal damages rectification are performed.
  • Welding – Welding is the process of joining metals by applying heat, sometimes with pressure and sometimes with an intermediate or filler metal having a high melting point. It is the process of fastening two pieces of metal together by softening with heat and applying pressure.
